REP season has arrived in Windsor.

From Tuesday, May 26 and for the next six weeks this group of actors, directors and creatives will six stage brilliantly diverse and wonderfully written plays to audiences at the Theatre Royal in Windsor.

While they perform one play in the evening their day times will be spent rehearsing for the following week’s play.

Theatre owner Bill Kenwright first saw director Paul Taylor-Mills and his team at Sidmouth Rep Season and after a conversation decided to bring rep back to Windsor.

“It’s relentless and full-on,” said Paul as the actors and creatives met for the first time on Monday.

“With Pardon Me, Prime Minister we are opening with a bang. If you like your comedy frothy, silly and fun.”

Audiences (of a certain age) will be no stranger to Rep Season in Windsor.

Repertory theatre or ‘Rep’ as it is commonly known, refers to those theatres housing a resident acting company who perform a programme of plays each season catering for the tastes of the whole community.

In its heyday, repertory theatre become a British institution which each town having its own company aiming to introduce audiences to a wide variety of theatre at a price they could afford.

Each repertory venue sought to help train young regional actors and the high turnover in plays gave the actors involved the opportunity to play a number of roles, both big and small, in a range of productions during the repertory season.

The Windsor Theatre Company was founded in 1938 by John Counsell, who oversaw more than 1,400 productions before his retirement in 1986.
