Host a Guest Artist

Host HomeDo you have a spare bedroom, granny unit, apartment or guest house?

SLO REP’s Host Home Program matches Guest Artists with area Hosts for the duration of their time working at the theatre. Guest Artists’ full time stays range from 3 weeks to 3 months, and part time Hosts are needed for shorter term stays.

The philanthropic support of our Hosts plays a crucial role in keeping alive the vision of our vibrant performing arts organization. We are committed to bringing the best talent to our community from all over the nation, ensuring we can continue to provide the high standard of live entertainment that residents and visitors alike have come to expect from SLO REP. We truly cannot thank our Hosts enough for making our visiting artists feel at home in our community. Host families become an integral part of a guest artist’s experience by welcoming them into their home or property.

Hosting an actor or director in your home is a wonderful way to get to know some very interesting people AND get an insiders’ look at life in the theatre. Many host families and artists forge lasting friendships and stay in contact for years, PLUS all host families receive complimentary tickets to SLO REP productions, acknowledgement in all playbills and invitations to special events, including our Major Donor Reception and Season Preview held every spring.

We are so grateful for these individuals and families who have generously opened their homes to our guest artists:
