Produce high-quality theatrical productions that will engage, entertain, educate, and inspire the people of Richmond and the surrounding area, participants and audiences alike.


Hello RCT friends,

As the theatre gets closer to re-opening, protocols have been developed for productions and front of house operations. Two teams worked on drafting and fine tuning guidance for RCT operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also sought input from the Wayne County Health Department. The final document, approved by the Board on June 22, is attached.

We have tried to put procedures in place that will help keep our volunteers and audiences members safe. But, we also recognize this document may need to be adjusted as we all work our way through the coming months.

Please feel free to share your comments and concerns with me.
