Today I would like to introduce you to one of RCP's newcomers, AJ McNamara. AJ is originally from Kennett, MO where he became involved in Kennett High School's drama department at the urging of his mother and sister. Growing up he never saw himself as a performer of any kind, thus his love for the theatre was sudden and unexpected to himself as well as those close to him. After high school AJ studied mechanical engineering at Missouri S&T for three years before deciding that an engineering career wasn't for him. He then transferred to Southeast Missouri State where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication in 2009. Upon graduation he took a job with Withers Broadcasting where he was a DJ on Mix 96.5 until January of this year. AJ has joined RCP to once again experience the theatre, having been away from it since the Spring of 2003! RCP welcomes AJ to our flock. We are always so happy when a new face shows up at our auditions. AJ will be playing the role of Peter Smedforson in our production of "Academia Nuts" opening on September 16. The role of Peter is that of a well-established, highly published college professor. The Prof. is strong on 20th century American poetry, but weak on real life. If you want to see AJ perform in this full length comedy then you must make reservations by calling Port Cape at 573-334-0954 and choose one of the following dates: Dinner Shows September 16,17,23,and 24 or the show only on September 22. The Port is located at 19 N. Water St. The cost of the prime rib buffet dinner show is $30 and the Show only cost is $15. Please come out and support your community theatre as we depend on you the community!!!!
