RCP 2017 FALL COMEDY CLOSES, THANKS RCP PATRONS!
SHAWN FRANK LEADS CAST IN "GETTING SARA MARRIED"
RCP'S FALL COMEDY "GETTING SARA MARRIED" by Sam Bobrick concluded on November 11th.
We had a great crowd all four nights, and every show was a lot of fun for the actors and our crowd. Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Bill Miller with the Lexington VFW for being such gracious hosts. They are fabulous parnters and couldn't be nicer people to work with.
RCP was blessed to have two very talented actors featured in this show for the first time: Shawn Frank as Brandon and Cindy Sause as Heather. RCP also wanted to thank our special cameo guests, who helped us out for the show: Bill Miller of the Lexington VFW, Jeff Levy, Superintendant of Lexington Public Schools, RCP founding father Earl Parris, Lexington Mayor Jerry Brown and Former Lexington State Legislator Joe Aull. Much thanks to all these great gentlemen for being in our show.
Our next adult show will be in the Spring of 2018. The next RCP production is our free Children's Christmas Show December 9th at the Trails Regional Library in Downtown Lexington.
