The San Jose Repertory Theatre (or San Jose Rep, SJ Rep or, locally, just the Rep) was founded in 1980 by James P. Reber as the first resident professional theatre company in San Jose, California, and is currently the largest non-profit, professional theatre company in the South Bay.
The theatre's mission is "to engage, entertain and inspire people".
The 2011-2012 season is the Rep's 30th anniversary, which it is celebrating with a World Premiere, two West Coast Premieres and three Regional Premieres.
