A R T I ST I C D I R E C TO R

We are thrilled to enter a new season at Orlando Repertory Theatre (Orlando REP) as we continue evolving the essential work that we do, work that we feel is vital and necessary for creating a stronger community. We believe exposure to and participation in theatre and the arts can build a more civil and just community, a healthier community, and a much more imaginative community. We love telling and sharing stories and feel that much can be learned from stories through the incredibly strong platform of theatre. Each show or project is anchored by story, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Using that metaphor, looking under the water line, you will discover a more complex design. We think about the work we do here (productions, classes, community projects, events, and more) through the multiple lenses: health and wellness, literacy and education, and imagination and creativity. The work we do at Orlando REP strengthens and supports mental health and emotional intelligence. How? By focusing on stories that seek to build the whole human being. The projects and shows we do inherently instill an appreciation for other people’s stories and journeys and model behaviors, both healthy and unhealthy, so that young people in the audience can recognize the difference. Being a theatre for family and young audiences, the majority of our projects are told or seen from the vantage point of a young person. It is important for young people to see themselves represented. Just as important for character building is seeing characters or situations that are not liked- the purpose of those characters/situations is to juxtapose them with positive modeled behaviors, so that lessons are learned. It is important to see characters or cultures that are not like us as well, to see how universal our human experiences are. By seeing or participating in this type of theatre, the traits of empathy, confidence, and acceptance are being stoked.

Theatre can help young people see how they can fit into the world and how they can make it a better place. Orlando REP supports literacy, pre-literacy, and education skills through encouraging family reading time. Each production is accompanied by a resource guide which includes recommended reading, thematic discussion questions, and related activities that support state and national curriculum standards. We have related books available in our lobbies. Copious studies show that learning through the arts helps to retain knowledge and increase understanding. In our productions, classes, and other projects, life skills such as collaboration, etiquette, and social skills are modeled and learned through theatre. In addition to that work, Orlando REP works directly with local educators on enhancing instruction of non-arts subjects by utilizing arts integration techniques. We also focus on early childhood education and dual language classrooms. Theatre is a tool that can be implemented broadly. Imagination and creativity are the traits that make us most human and by seeing and participating in the programming here at Orlando REP, the fires of wonder and inspiration are sparked. As our world is increasingly focused on standardized tests, we must pay attention to creative thinking, so that we continue to develop problem-solvers, inventors, and innovators- those that think outside the box. Theatre encourages improvisational thinking and assists in developing your unique voice. At Orlando REP, we create a safe space for young people to explore choices, a space where it is okay to try and not succeed, assessing what is needed for success, and trying again. Resiliency and grit are developed as young people flex their creative muscles in our programs. We believe theatre develops the important skills necessary for a full life. Orlando REP exists to provide inspiring and exciting artistic experiences for young people and families. We believe theatre can bridge gaps, theatre can change hearts, theatre can change minds, theatre can inspire compassion, theatre can provoke conversation, theatre can transform. But for theatre to happen, we need you; we hope this is the year you try something new here or deepen your experience with us. See you at theatre,

Theatre can present difficult issues that lead to constructive conversations by using the story to facilitate the discussion. 3

LETTERS FROM ANNE AND MARTIN OCTOBER 6, 2019 Sunday at 3:30pm

This presentation supports the accompanying traveling exhibit at The Holocaust Memorial and Resource Center of Florida. “Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank” was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. This project is made possible by a grant from Duke Energy through United Arts of Central Florida. This performance brought to you by The Rotary Club of Maitland. This unique adaptation combines the iconic words of both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne Frank. Born during the same year, living on continents 5,000 miles apart, these historical figures shared parallel experiences living in the shadow of hatred and prejudice. This production uses their own words to illustrate the similarities between their stories. In this presentation, a derogatory racial epithet used against Dr. King is discussed.
