RTC is made up of approximately 50 students between the ages of 6 and 18. They attend schools throughout Windsor and Essex County. Some of our students are homeschooled, as well. Both our productions this year are suitable for students of all ages.
Anne of Green Gables
February 23rd, 2018 at 10 a.m.
Faithfully adapted from L.M. Montgomery’s beloved novel, this Canadian classic tells the story of a Prince Edward Island couple who adopt a young girl in what turns out to be the most fortunate mistake of all their lives. Another original RTC adaptation, this production will celebrate the 110th Anne-iversary of the novel’s publication.
Our actors will range from 11-18 years old in this performance.
Seussical: The Musical
Friday, May 25th, 2018 at 10 a.m.
“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
Seussical is fun for all ages!
