The Old Rep is a young people driven theatre situated on Station Street in the centre of Birmingham. We present a year-round programme of theatre, dance, comedy, musicals and creative workshops.
In 2016, we were the proud winners of Best Small TheatreArts Venue, Birmingham in the Whatís On Reader Awards.
The Old Rep is an iconic venue that occupies a unique place in theatre history as Britainís first purpose-built repertory theatre.
Opened in 1913, The Old Rep was the original home of the Birmingham Repertory Company led by Sir Barry Jackson, who moved to their new site on Broad Street in 1971.
Just as in the days of the repertory company where young actors would come from all over the country to learn their craft, The Old Rep strives to engage, educate and entertain the next generation of artists and theatre lovers. With a high quality programme of events, The Old Rep is a creative hub that showcases professional productions as well as nurturing talent by providing a platform to showcase amateur performances.
We are dedicated to providing space for young people to craft a career in the arts and we offer a wide range of training opportunities within production, theatre management, marketing and technical theatre.
The theatre has been well-preserved and still retains many original features from its early days including a mirror rumoured to have been requested by Sir Laurence Olivier himself! The 385 seater auditorium is an inspirational setting for our varied programme and a must-see for those interested in Birminghamís and Britainís theatrical history.
