Temple Repertory Theater, a newly-created professional company of artists closely associated with the Department of Theater at Temple University, announces the launch of its inaugural season this summer in Philadelphia. Under the leadership of Executive Producer Roberta Sloan and Artistic Director Dan Kern (Barrymore Award-winning director of Skylight at Lantern Theater Company), Temple Repertory Theater will create actor-driven productions that focus on the professional excellence of the actor and mastery of the text to create a personal and dynamic audience experience. To achieve this, the audience will sit in a disarmingly intimate configuration—up close and personal with the stage and the actors—to literally thrust them into the action of the play. This refreshing focus will be brought to life by a group of accomplished professional actors with Broadway, New York, national, and regional credits currently working towards their Master of Fine Arts degrees at Temple University, combined with Temple-affiliated directors, designers and theater artists collaborating as a repertory company.
Temple Repertory Theater is made possible through collaboration with the Department of Theater at Temple University, headed by department chair and Executive Producer of Temple Theaters, Roberta Sloan, and Artistic Director of Temple Theaters, Douglas C. Wager.
