PacRep Theatre

Mission

In celebrating the transforming power of the creative spirit, PacRep Theatre produces bold and daring interpretations of the great plays from the world stage -- plays that engage, excite, educate and inspire -- Presenting a world class theatrical experience.

The Big Idea

As the only year-round professional theater in Monterey County, PacRep has been an integral part of the arts and cultural scene for 36 years, providing an outlet for creativity and expression. Their Big Idea, “Shrek’s Big Green Deal: Great Theatre, Little Footprint,” revolves around sustainability. The motto? When Shrek “thinks green,” he’s thinking about an ogre’s impact on the environment! PacRep shares his concern and is raising funds to make their facilities and programs more environmentally sound, using renewable materials and alternative energy sources whenever possible. With adequate funding, they hope to install water-bottle refill stations as an alternative to selling bottled water to theater-goers, convert battery-driven systems to rechargeable units, upgrade extensive lighting equipment to LEDs, create a rain catchment system for greywater usage, and assist the Outdoor Forest Theater in moving from wood-burning to propane fire pits.

How fortunate we are to have wonderful local entertainment and talent. If you are fond of live theater, then PacRep is for you! Your production of Million Dollar Quartet was a winner. It was a history lesson as well as a dance down memory lane. Everything I’ve seen at PacRep has been outstanding and well worth the time and money. If you’ve not been to see a show, you are truly missing a fabulous experience. Check them out, either at the Golden Bough or the Outdoor Forest Theater. You won’t be disappointed. I guarantee it.

We Did It, Together!

Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful.

Look for the 2020 Monterey County Gives! RFP (for applying nonprofits) in the Monterey County Weekly this June/July. Monterey County Gives! 2020 campaign kicks off in early November.

Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.
