WRBH Reading Radio and Southern Rep Theatre To Begin Partnership

WRBH and Southern Rep Enter Partnership

WRBH Reading Radio to be the featured partner at Theatre’s preview performance of STAGE KISS

(New Orleans) – On Wednesday, September 16th at 8PM, WRBH Reading Radio for the Blind and Print Handicapped will launch a new partnership with Southern Rep Theatre on the night of the first preview showing of their latest play, STAGE KISS. WRBH will be the evening’s featured community partner; $5 of each ticket sold will go back to the station.

“We’ve enjoyed working with Southern Rep in the past and we’re happy to enter into an official partnership,” said David Benedetto, WRBH’s Marketing Director. “Their creative output is great and we’re looking forward to the performance and to working together more in the future.” Aimée Hayes, Southern Rep’s Producing Artistic Director, has appeared several times on WRBH’s Audio Portraits interview program to talk about upcoming events for the theatre and her experience as both an actress and director. 

Now entering its 29th Season, Southern Rep Theatre produces award-winning productions that are engaging, educational, and accessible for audiences of every socioeconomic background. Under the leadership of Aimée Hayes and Managing Director Jenny Windstrup, Southern Rep Theatre’s Mainstage Season includes bold World and Regional Premieres as well as the best of Broadway, off-Broadway, and classic plays. A mainstay of New Orleans’ arts community, Southern Rep Theatre continues to build on its unique position as a sector leader, creative force, and important resource for contemporary American theatre.

STAGE KISS opens September 19th and runs Thursdays through Sundays through October 10, with previews from September 16-18. It is the opening production of Southern Rep Theatre’s 2015-16 Mainstage Season. Tickets for STAGE KISS can be purchased individually or as part of a four-play subscription through the box office at 504-522-6545 or www.southernrep.com.
