RCS Play

RCS Empowers Shrek Jr. the Musical Postponed 

Updated: February 8, 2021

RCS participants, families, and community members,

RCS Empowers, Inc. remains committed to maintaining and protecting the health and safety of our participants as well as our community.  Therefore, we have decided to postpone the Shrek Jr play performance until further notice.  We are determined to empower individuals to discover and share their talents but are looking at other ways to do this until we can again safely put on a production.

Thank you all for your support of our programming and our fundraising efforts. Your dedication to our shared mission inspires us to be the best that we can be as we work through these difficult times.

Thank you for your continued support and please stay safe!

RCS Management

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, the 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.

RCS participants, staff, and volunteers will be working to put together a fantastic show for our audiences in April. Dates and times to be announced soon. 

Performances sell out every year, so buy your tickets right away! Ticket selections can be purchased and printed directly through rcs.ticketleap.com


If you are interested in volunteering for our play please contact Angie Buechel.
