Since its founding in 1979, Merrimack Repertory Theatre has presented well over 200 productions, including 16 world premieres and 34 regional premieres.
The company annually offers an eclectic season of plays and musicals in Liberty Hall, its 308-seat theatre adjacent to Lowell Memorial Auditorium in downtown Lowell. A representative sample of its productions over the course of its 30-years-plus history: Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, Elmer Rice’s The Adding Machine, Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel, and Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance.
With annual audiences of more than 40,000, the company seeks to strike a balance between artistic achievement and accessibility by producing exceptional works while offering a variety of discount ticket programs and outreach/education services for low-income communities, students and seniors.
