Chalk Repertory Theatre is dedicated to producing classical and contemporary plays in unconventional spaces.

Working with a diverse group of artists, we create work that is designed to reach a non-traditional audience and stimulate community discussion. We aim to transform set ideas about what theatre can be, to create work that is intimate, relevant, and accessible to all.

Chalk Repertory Theatre


Working in front of, behind, and around the scenes.
Currently a company of thirteen artists, led by a rotating duo of Co-Artistic Producing Directors, Chalk remains true to our original mission working with a diverse group of artists to create works that are intimate, accessible, and an event to attend.
