  • RCTC Theatre Program has a long standing tradition for providing high quality education to young and inexperienced actors. We pride ourselves at preparing you for the next level of your theatre arts journey. Whether your interest is to become a regular on the community stage or further your knowledge by going into a four year theatre program, we will make sure you are ready for the next step.
  • RCTC Theatre produces three main stage plays every year. In the fall we produce a children’s play that is seen by three to four thousand students a year. In the spring we produce one larger comedy or drama and one experimental play often in conjunction with the Rochester Reads program.

Beyond our main stage offerings, the student directed Drama Club writes and performs short one or two night variety shows and performs and hosts performance for fund raising events for on and off campus organizations. The drama club typically does three to four performances a year as well as going to local and professional shows for free or at a discounted price.
