Since being founded in 1913, Birmingham Repertory Theatre has been one of the leading national producing theatre companies. It has introduced a range of new and foreign plays to the British theatre repertoire, and has been a springboard for many internationally acclaimed actors, designers and directors.

The company moved to its current home on Centenary Square in 1973 and since that time further facilities, including improved workshop, rehearsal and function spaces have been integrated into the building.

The staff build and produce an average of 20 productions each year, ranging from small scale development work to full-scale musical productions.

Most of this production work is delivered on-site and to facilitate this the theatre houses a large wood and metal workshop where sets are constructed, a paintshop where sets, cloths and large props are painted, sound engineering studios, a wardrobe department where all costumes are cut, fitted and sewn, a wigs and make-up department where prosthetics and special effects make-up is produced and wigs are hand made; and a props department where furniture and smaller items are created. The REP has two rehearsal spaces where actors work under direction for about four weeks before transferring to one of The REP’s two auditoria, when the production is ready for its opening performance.
