The Rep announced today that it exceeded its $5.4 million, four-year capital campaign plan. Which means that it raised enough to receive a $600,000 Challenge Grant from The Kresge Foundation, bringing the grand total to $6,043,384. Pretty impressive considering the theater had to also raise $1.5 million annually, throughout the last four years, just to support its regular operations.

The theater will use the funds to update the lobby, add seating, expand the restrooms and update the private party room.

The Rep will close on July 1 for renovations and reopen after Labor Day.
