Rep’s mission to entertain, engage and inspire through the highest quality
professional repertory theatre and superior educational programs is underpinned
by the following goals: a) Produce bold, compelling work in a creative,
nurturing home for resident and guest artists; b) Give a diverse audience access to world-class productions and public programs; c) Develop and present new work and embrace innovation in artistry; d) Inspire
youth throughout the region to experience, discuss, and create live theatre, and
e) Foster the next generation of artists for the American theatre through our
partnership with the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training.
Asolo Rep is a professional regional theatre which produces nine to ten productions on three stages over nine months each year. Asolo Rep is one of the only regional theatres in the nation that stages performances in true rotating repertory, a unique method that challenges actors while giving audiences access to multiple productions in the span of a few days.
Asolo Rep is based in the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, which we share with the Conservatory and the Sarasota Ballet. This state-of-the-art facility was opened by Asolo Rep in 1989 and is now owned/maintained by FSU. Asolo Rep provides the core theatrical offerings from November-July in the 503-seat Mertz Theatre. The 161-seat Cook Theatre is used primarily for the Conservatory’s season performed by 2nd-year students. In addition to the Costume Shop at the Center, Asolo Rep owns the Robert and Beverly Koski Production Center, a 36,000 sq. ft. facility that houses our Joan Armour Mendell Scenic Studio, costume and prop collection, and the Weiller Rehearsal Hall. Asolo Rep owns ten condos that comprise our Coville Guest Artist Housing. All of our owned facilities are debt-free as a result of the theatre's capital campaign.
