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.
We continue to monitor and adopt the best practices/recommendations for theaters and our procedures have proven to keep our patrons safe and comfortable at the Ruby Theatre. We are Art Safe Certified by the Missouri Arts Council and the Missouri Arts Safety Alliance.
