THE 2016 SEASON

Stacks Image 36835

We’re looking forward to anther great season and hope you’ll join us!

  • CRAZY FOR YOU: A singing and dancing extravaganza! Some of Gershwin’s most beloved songs plus outrageous comedy, romance, mistaken identity, singing cowboys, tap numbers make this a show everyone loves! Performances January 8-10.
  • COMPANY: Stephen Sondheim’s brilliant meditation on midlife as seen through the eyes of Bobby (Robert, darling) and his cadre of friends and lovers. Performances February 26-28 at the LACS Blackbox Theatre
  • DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID: The stage version of the classic Disney movie musical. Join Ariel and her friends under the sea for adventures and the quest for love and feet. Performances May 13-15.
  • RENT (SCHOOL EDITION): La vie Boheme! They’re not gonna pay! This seminal modern Broadway classic comes to vivid life. With minor revisions by the Larson estate to make it R2P-friendly, the show still has plenty of bite. Not for the youngest audience members. Performances July 5-14.
  • THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE: Gilbert & Sullivan’s funniest and most clever ever! A band of the worst pirates on the seas, a bevy of bold and beautiful sisters, and a platoon of hapless Keystone Kops. Oh, and all of this will be gender flip-flopped because fake mustaches on girls and boys in petticoats equals fun times for all. Performances August 19-21.
  • Additionally, we will be offering performances by the newly formed traveling cabaret: R2PtoGO.

GALLERIES

Since R2P began, most of our shows have been archived by professional photographer George Cannon. He generously donates his services and attends rehearsals, performances, and a separate "photo call" to make sure he covers the shows thoroughly. Check out R2P shows through the ages here.

You can see all of his R2P photography (as well as his other beautiful work) at
georgecannonphotography.com and imageguy.zenfolio.com. You can view photos and order prints – 30% of your purchases will be donated right back to R2P! Thank you, George!
