The Actor’s Workshop & Repertory Company (Actor’s Rep) was launched in May, 1980. The Rep delighted, shocked, amused and educated thousands of audience members who flocked to its 99-seat theatre-in-the-round on Dixie Highway in downtown West Palm Beach.
The fare included avant-garde plays as well as seldom performed classics. Many shows contained true-to-life subject matters too risky for other theaters. By the end of the first season, Actors Rep had the reputation of excellence and subscribers from Fort Pierce to Key West.
Newspapers called attention to the importance and strength of the company and the quality of the acting and works performed. In the summer, Actor’s Rep held the very first children’s and teen acting day camps ever in Palm Beach or Broward counties.
