River City Players was originally known as Act I,II,and III, founded by the late Ann Abbott. We started out in the Old Fire House in the late 60's and 70's. Public interest grew, so we had to move in the mid-seventies from the Old Fire House to the old Rialto Theatre (Concord Theatre). We then were known as the Broadway Players and with the help of the Council of the Arts, grew larger. At that time, some funding became available and we started performing quality shows. We made minor repairs to Concord Theatre, but because of the condition it had to be vacated. We were again homeless. A new group was formed with a Board of Directors (no longer under the direction of The Arts Council). We approached Doc Cain with the idea of a dinner theatre, and he liked it. The group was then renamed River City Players.
Today, we as members of River City Players (RCP) take a great deal of pride in the shows we perform. Under the leadership of our Board of Directors in conjunction with Port Cape and their staff we are alive and well and look forward to continued growth as Cape's Community Theatre.
Our next production will open on September 11, 2009 and run Sept.12,17,18,19. It is a comedy titled 'Getting Sara Married'. Hope to see you then.
