The mission of the Toledo Repertoire Theatre, founded in 1933, is to educate, entertain and serve Toledo and the surrounding region through live theatre.

Letter from the Artistic Director


There's a new addition to The Toledo Repertoire Theatre family! Lily Lohman, daughter of Sara and Judson Lohman entered into this world on Saturday, May 19th. Lily is a beautiful little lady, and the next one in line for my job. Congrats to Sara and Judson.

Our 79th Mainstage Season is coming to an end with the foot-stomping musical, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, June 8 through 24. TBLWIT promises to be another success for The Rep under the direction of James M. Norman, musical direction by Josh Glover, and choreography by Brian
Rodabaugh. Due to mature subject matter parental discretion is advised.

Our 80th Anniversary Season Tickets are on sale now! And while the per-show ticket is slightly more
than last year, the season ticket price has remained the same, giving you greater savings with the same flexibility you've come to expect. To ensure your favorite seat order your season tickets now, before individual show tickets go on sale beginning July 1st.

Interested in volunteering? Please drop me an email at sburnette@toledorep.org and we'll be in touch
with you shortly.

Thanks for your continued patronage of The Toledo Repertoire Theatre.

Miss Mona, the proprietor of the Chicken Ranch (a Texas tradition), takes care of her girls, and is friendly with the local sheriff. When a crusading television reporter decides to make the illegal activity an issue, chaos and hilarity ensue. Based on a true story, this fun and witty musical features the song, Hard Candy Christmas, made popular by Dolly Parton who portrayed Miss Mona in the big screen adaptation.

Theatre Manners and Advice with Entertainment Etiquette Expert,   Wilma Seatsbetaken

 B. Shields of Bowling Green writes...Dear Wilma, I've been using conditioner for about seven years, and lately my hair seems brittle. I haven't changed my conditioner and we've always had a water softener, so I'm wondering if this brittle hair might be the result of something in my diet.

Dear Ms Sheilds. Probably.
Do you have a question for Wilma?  Please drop Wilma a line at Wilma@toledorep.org and perhaps your question will be published and answered in our next e-Newsletter.
