After a very successful season, Rivercity Players (RCP) is looking towards the 2024/2025 season, starting with their One Act Plays production.

NOw, RCP is looking for actors aged 18 and over, male and female, to act in three short plays. A variety of plays are being considered – both comedy and drama. One act plays are more flexible in rehearsals, and a great opportunity for someone new to the theatre. This year’s directors are Dennis Hawkins-Bogle, Melony Larre (both first time directors) and Lynne Macara.

When asked what made her decide to try directing, Larre said, “I found a funny play and pitched it to another member of Rivercity Players and she suggested I direct it. I never thought of myself in that role honestly, but then I realized I’d helped backstage and been onstage, so this was a really good opportunity to progress. I had a vision for the play as soon as I read it so that likely helped me decide as well!”

Auditions will be held at the Rivercity Stage, 1080 Hemlock Street on Sunday, June 9 at 7 p.m. Call backs are scheduled for June 10 and 11. Production dates are Sept. 18 to 21.

There are many other ways to be involved in the theatre. RCP is looking for everyone from directors to stage/tech crew to costume, hair and makeup. Whether your skills and interests are financial, organizational, technical or artistic, RCP has a place for you and would love to have your help to bring their productions to life. Working in the theatre is a team effort, and they look forward to having you join their team.
