2016 Schedule for Seaside Rep!

A MAGICAL TRADITION RETURNS FOR AN ENCHANTED SUMMER
2016 Schedule for The REP Theatre – Seaside, FL

Santa Rosa Beach, FL (May 24, 2016) – The Repertory Theatre – Seaside, FL, also known as The REP, is so excited to present another summer season filled with fun and enchantment for kids of all ages. For 16 years, The REP has delighted vacationers and locals with outdoor performances, magic acts, late night improv comedy shows, and stand up comics, to improv and magic workshops for the kids.

The REP’s free outdoor performance tradition continues with performances of The Commedia Rapunzel at the Seaside Amphitheater and The Stinky Cheese Man at North Barrett Square in Rosemary Beach. “Parents always come up to us after the outdoor performances to tell us that they return to 30A each year because the Seaside and Rosemary Beach performances have become a part of their family vacation tradition” said REP Executive Director, Brook Stetler. “It’s awesome that the kids are begging their parents to see live theatre year after year!”

Shattering the mold of the traditional magic performance, Jeanette Andrews returns to The REP for the third summer to present her newest work, Synesthesia, a thought-provoking take on the art of the impossible. Watch as a member of the audience can foresee the future, a wine glass melts with a simple touch, and a white rose spins to life. Ms. Andrews leaves participants astonished by turning the traditional magic narrative on its head to give audiences an electrifying and sophisticated experience  that will leave you speechless and enchanted. All of Jeanette’s performances are generously sponsored by Fusion Art Glass.

For those looking for a little late night fun, Awkward Oxen Improv Hour – LATE NIGHT is a high energy, fast-paced, and interactive show, in the style of Whose Line Is It Anyway? The scenes are based off audience suggestions and often include adult humor and language so leave the small kids at home. Awkward Oxen Improv Hour – LATE NIGHT is generously sponsored by the Cottage Rental Agency and Sundog Books.

The REP’s 2016 Season is generously sponsored by Pizitz Home and Cottage and The Alys Foundation.  For more information about the summer season, please visit LoveTheREP.com
