Jr. Players

Jr. Players

RRT Jr Players is an advanced acting troupe for young people who have prior experience in an RRT education program / production, in another arts organization, or at their school.

Opportunities are available for both actors and production crew members. 

Young people specifically interested in tech work are encouraged to join since troupe members will build set pieces, gather props, run lights and sound, etc. Those with a specific interest in technical theatre will have more responsibilities on a production crew and may choose not to audition for a part.  This season some of RRT’s Mainstage and Landing production members will work with Jr Players technicians.

Actors will audition for roles just as they do for Mainstage and Tabletop shows. All who audition are not guaranteed a part; however, the scripts will be for moderate size casts to accommodate many young actors. Those not cast will have more responsibilities on a production crew.

GIRL CRAZY, a comedy

Synopsis: Danny Churchill, New York playboy, gets shipped out to the dilapidated family ranch in Arizona because his family thinks a year out there is just what he needs. Danny arrives in a taxi and the bill is astronomic! But how else would you get from New York to Arizona in 1930? Danny quickly proves he has ideas of his own. He turns the place into a swank dude ranch and soon it’s lively enough with eastern girls and singing cowboys.    But it’s the western girl who interests Danny. Just as Molly is beginning to wonder if Danny is really sincere, Tess and Sam, New York visitors from Danny’s past, arrive.
