Established in 1986, The Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Idaho (ARTI) is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization dedicated to producing professional quality theatre for Southeastern Idaho audiences. Since its beginnings, ARTI has been a dinner theatre venue, offering audiences not only a wide variety of theatre, but also an intimate dining experience including beer and wine service. Since 2001, ARTI has owned its theatre, located in Historic, Downtown Idaho Falls, and recently named The Phoenix.
Often presenting groundbreaking and award-winning theatrical productions, as well as regional premieres, ARTI is known for its “adult” fare including such hits as The Vagina Monologues, Pillowman, Beauty Queen of Leenane, Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, Sordid Lives, and The Laramie Project. A favorite motto of ARTI and its members is “For Mature Audiences Only”.
In keeping with traditional repertory theatre, ARTI relies on the dedication and talents of a core, or stock, theatre company which includes actors, directors and set and costume designers as well as other technicians. Audiences become familiar with this resident company both on and off stage. To familiarize themselves with the organization and become involved, newcomers are encouraged to audition, contact a board member or other member of the company, or attend an ARTI production.
ARTI is always on the lookout for dedicated and talented new members!
