Tex*Rep’s History

Texarkana Repertory Company, Inc., was formed in 1990 by a group of area stage enthusiasts with the attitude, “Let’s do a show!”

In its first year, Tex*Rep staged “The Foreigner” with excellent community response. Since that time, we have staged a full season of four shows each year and have grown in memberships and audiences.

Over the years, we have had the privilege of staging a number of memorable shows, including:

Musicals: Children of Eden, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Hello Dolly, The Music Man, Damn Yankees, Grease, My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof, 1776, Into the Woods, Little Shop of Horrors, Nunsense (I, II & III), Once Upon a Mattress, The Secret Garden, Oliver! and Smoke on the Mountain.

Comedies: Don’t Dress for Dinner, As Bees in Honey Drown, Fuddy Meers, Noises Off, The Philadelphia Story, Lend Me a Tenor, Plaza Suite, Cyrano deBergerac, The Mystery of Irma Vep, and Moon Over Buffalo.

Dramas: And Then There Were None, Proof, The Laramie Project, Steel Magnolias, Wait Until Dark, Romeo and Juliet, Love Letters, Death Trap, From Hardscrabble, Marvin’s Room, Amadeus and The Grapes of Wrath.
