The Arkansas Repertory Theatre announced this afternoon that longtime artistic director Robert Hupp is resigning this year, following the conclusion of his contract in June 2016. Hupp has been at The Rep for 17 seasons, and will take a new job as artistic director of the Syracuse Stage in Syracuse, New York.

“It’s been an honor to steward The Rep for these past seventeen years,” Hupp said in a press release. “I am especially grateful to the kind and generous patrons of central Arkansas who make creating theatre here fun and rewarding. Little Rock has been a tremendous place to raise a family, and a wonderful place to call home. I’ve been extremely lucky to work with such a dedicated Board of Directors and a multi-talented Rep staff. Arkansas Rep’s future is very bright, and I look forward to being a fan for years to come.”

According to The Rep, "A search committee is being formed as The Rep’s Board of Directors launches an immediate national search for Hupp’s successor. Before departing, Hupp will plan The Rep’s 2016-17 Season."
