Acting Out in Class

From UofL News, September 18 2009

They come to the University of Louisville from all over the country and, once here, go all over town.

The theatre arts department’s Repertory Company takes its shows on the road, providing many young students with their first experience in the performing arts. Since professor Bert Harris founded the company in 1975, it has performed to more than 150,000 young people throughout Louisville and southern Indiana.

This year’s troupe of four graduate students is about to hit the road with two 30-minute plays: “The Seven Labors of Arlecchino,” a folk tale adapted and directed by professor James Tompkins, and “How Vulture Saved the Earth,” a Yoruba poem that professor Nefertiti Burton adapted for the stage.

About the Repertory Company

 

Every year, a troupe of graduate students from the University of Louisville performs two plays in rotating repertory for thousands of children, teachers, and other members of our community. Since its first performance on January 20, 1975, the Repertory Company has become one of the most visible aspects of the theatre program at UofL, having performed for more than 100,000 people. The Repertory Company performances are offered at a very low cost for any school or non-profit organization in the Louisville metropolitan area, a unique service made possible by the generous support of the University of Louisville, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School, and the Department of Theatre Arts. Through projects such as this, an urban university can serve its community as no other type of institution can.

Although area schools now schedule the vast majority of Rep Company performances, the Company’s tours have taken it to a remarkable variety of venues: classrooms, nursing homes, chapels and outdoor amphitheatres, the Governor’s Mansion, and the state prison. The Rep Company’s production of The Glass Menagerie was performed at the international Avignon Theatre Festival in France. It seldom, if ever, performs in a traditional theatre.

103 performers have been members of the Repertory Company to date. Alumni of the Company are working as actors throughout the country or as teachers, lawyers, carpenters, or in other professions.
