For over sixty years RCS has been empowering individuals to reach for the stars and make their dreams a reality. Drama & theater have been a significant influence in the lives of our participants. Our plays enable people with disabilities to move beyond their physical, mental, and emotional limitations. The preparation and production empower participants and give them dignity, self-esteem, respect for self and others, humor, knowledge, as well as a love for the theater, music, and the arts! Family members, caregivers, friends and the community benefit from seeing participants help prepare or perform in the plays. Participant talents are showcased through acting, creation of props, costume development, and socialization. Truly a community event, the annual play is an endeavor which brings together actors and actresses, with and without disabilities, to perform together each year.
“Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, it’s off to work we go!” Planning is underway for next year’s annual show! The 2017 RCS show will be a production of Snow White & … RCS participants, staff, and volunteers will be working to put together a fantastic show for our audiences. The dates for the 2017 show are April 4-7, featuring two morning performances and two evening performances. In order to focus our time and efforts on the performances, we will not be doing a fundraiser dinner. Tickets for all performances will go on sale through Ticket Leap on March 1st.
Performances sell out every year, so buy your tickets right away! Ticket selections can be purchased and printed directly through rcs.ticketleap.com
