Seacoast Repertory Theatre is a non-profit, professional regional theatre located in historic downtown Portsmouth NH. We’re a group of entertainers working toward a common goal: making the Seacoast better through the shared experience of live theatre.
We believe that good theatre makes good people in the audience and on the stage, and that when people experience theatre together they leave better than when they came in, whether they’re a first-time theatre goer, a lifelong audience member, or a seasoned veteran of the stage. Our audiences are our collaborators, so we’re committed to producing shows and entertainment that will delight, inspire, challenge, and dazzle.
We believe that Broadway quality shows can be produced, staged, and seen right here on the Seacoast, using the best talent from New England and beyond. Our Mainstage presents year-round, Broadway-quality entertainment from classics to new works, performed by the finest professional actors from New England, Broadway and beyond.
We believe in the future of theatre, which is why we house the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts. Each year, we train hundreds of performers, young and old alike with classes, workshops, and camps designed to nurture talent and cultivate confidence. It is also why we support programs like our PAPA Workshop Productions, the Red Light Series, and Jamie Bradley’s Homegrown Series. We are always on the lookout for new plays to keep our audiences challenged and delighted.
We believe that theatre can be a force for good in the community, which is why we produce Senior Repertory Theatre, a theatre company by seniors for seniors paired with outreach to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and senior centers. It is also why we offer Department M, a costume rental and production support service for our theatre community.
We believe that theatre is for everyone. This is why we try as hard as we can to keep ticket prices low and class tuition affordable. We offer scholarships and discounts regularly.
