The Classic Repertory Company (CRC) is New Rep’s flagship educational outreach program, bringing live theatre and educational units year-round to schools, senior centers, universities, summer camps, and presenting organizations throughout New England. CRC creates theatrical experiences that are educational and artistically compelling. Each 90-minute performance is accompanied by comprehensive study guides, a pre-show introduction, and a post-show discussion with the actors. We also offer curricular units that may be booked alongside the performance to expand students’ educational experience.

We also offer curricular units that may be booked alongside the performance to expand students’ educational experience. CRC visits the classroom before the performance with our Exploring the Text unit. Our company brings an interactive introduction to the text, characters, and the world of the play with this pre-show experience. After seeing the show, students are given an opportunity to learn more about the craft of theatre and storytelling with our Exploring the Production unit. CRC visits the classroom to further examine the themes of the production, contemporary relevance, and our specific take on these classic works with this comprehensive post-show experience.
