The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre began May 1973 with a rag-tag group of 12 actors performing scenes for audiences in a laundromat-turned 36 seat theatre on Van Ness Boulevard. When Lonny Chapman first entered that theatre, the magic began. Here was an Artistic Director in search of a theatre and a theatre company in search of an Artistic Director. The match was perfect and the Group Repertory Theatre was born with Lonny Chapman at the helm. This partnership continued until his passing in 2007. With you, our audience, we continue to strive to fulfill the vision of Lonny Chapman: First, to entertain, then to illuminate the human condition – and never be boring. The audience, play and actor have equal parts in this exciting venture. We welcome you here at the Lonny Chapman Theatre for many years to come!
