Merrimack Repertory Theatre
50 E. Merrimack St.
Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT) is the only professional theatre company serving Lowell and the surrounding communities, and one of just three theatres in the state (along with Huntington Theatre Company and ART) who are members of the League of Resident Theatres (LORT), the national organization representing America’s leading non-profit theatre companies. MRT creates and presents seven productions of mostly contemporary and new plays each year between September and May. Each production runs four weeks and is newly created as a unique work of theatrical art by nationally recognized actors, directors and designers from New York, Boston and across the country, who are attracted to Lowell by MRT’s reputation for artistic excellence, by the opportunity to work on fresh and engaging material and for the reward of creating theatre for an uncommonly intelligent and appreciative audience. MRT attracts over 40,000 people each season to its newly renovated Nancy L. Donahue Theatre, which is located in Liberty Hall adjacent to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium in historic downtown Lowell. Ample municipal parking and many restaurants are within walking distance of the theatre. Discounted season subscriptions and single tickets are available at all times.
