/ref> CRT offers a subscription series of six plays and musicals each year—two in the 116-seat Studio Theatre, two in the 240-seat Nafe Katter Theatre, and two in the 485-seat Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre. Productions range from dramas such as ''The Children's Hour'' by Lillian Hellman to more light-hearted fare such as ''The Odd Couple'' by Neil Simon. Prominent theatre personalities who have appeared in CRT productions include actors Kim Hunter, Judy Kaye, and Aleta Mitchell, directors James Warwick and Larry Carpenter, choreographer Tony Stevens, and designer Dennis Parichy.
''The New York Times'' said of the CRT, "Theater lovers desperately seeking a touch of class to assuage the ache of Tony fallout should drive to the University of Connecticut at Storrs for an essential restorative by the Connecticut Repertory Theater."
CRT and the Department of Dramatic Arts also run the internationally renowned Puppet Arts program.Eric Wright: Puppet Kitchen
