Two members of our RCP family have been battling illness this summer. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to EDWARD HAYNES (Shelia Lee's Dad) who has been tireless and wonderful in helping RCP with set construction for the past several years.

RCP also extends our best wishes for a speedy recovery to RCP Veteran Actor Alex Phillips.

Both Edward and Alex have undergone serious surgeries this Spring, and we wish both of them a speedy and full recovery.

RCP's 35th season has been dedicated to long time RCP member Melanie Corporon, who passed away in October 2017. Both Melanie, her husband Tom and son Nick have appeared in RCP productions in years past and are part of our RCP family. Melanie was a talented actress, director and set designer. RCP will remember Melanie and honor her service to our group during our 35th Season.


Special thank you to RCP President Sharon Propst, who directed the 2016 Children's Christmas show, and has directed and written the Christmas Show for the past 25 years. Lexington Mayor Jerry Brown presented Sharon with an official Proclamation from the City of Lexington commemorating the event.

25th Anniversary cake and punch were served to the audience.
