Acrosstown Reportary Theatre

619 South Main Street
Gainesville, FL 32601


Since its inception in 1980, the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre has provided Gainesville and Alachua County with a unique and innovative cultural experience. There are many opportunities for exploring acting, writing, directing, and production for many diverse sectors of our community, especially for those who otherwise might not enjoy such opportunities.

Citizens of all ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds participate in the theatre’s activities. Professional and novice playwrights, poets, and other creative artists have enjoyed having their works staged. Workshops and performance opportunities for children, the elderly, the disabled, and minorities have been promoted.

The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre’s mission is to engage, educate, challenge, and inspire the minds and hearts of our diverse community of patrons through the healing mediums of artistry, community outreach, and sponsorship of local talent wherever we may find it; and by practicing mindful, compassionate awareness of the importance of culture in our lives. Founded in 1980 and staffed entirely by volunteers, the ART is a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit.
