Our Audiences Speak Out!
There aren't enough superlatives to describe yesterday's experience as we watched Bye, Bye Birdie unfold on stage! Everything about it was A-One, Excellent, Engrossing Entertainment. What a happy relief to have 2 hours of unadulterated bliss and laughter....free of the daily stress of grim, news headlines. The Richardson Red Hatters and I marveled at the outstanding cast of talented performers, the direction, staging and the choreography! It rivaled the best musicals you can enjoy on the Broadway stage today. There is just as much professionalism, not to mention HUGELY talented actors, right here in Texas. I am going to see On Your Feet on Broadway in early October and I hope that it will be as good as Bye, Bye Birdie! Continued Success from some of your biggest fans,
~Terry Ryan and The Richardson Red Hatters
I am so glad "Steel Magnolias" continues to be produced after 29 years. Thank you so much for telling my sister's and mother's story. I know my brother will be proud! ~ John Harling
We saw Beauty and the Beast, Saturday night at Repertory Company Theatre with Frank Bowles,Patricia Rios Gonzalez, Judy Burchfield and her husband Keith. What an outstanding performance. The costuming was out of this world, especially the Beast. Aimee Mahoney as Belle was perfect, what an incredible voice and she is Beauty. We would have turned right around and watched it again. Kudos to Rachel Ratcliff (Mrs Potts) for holding her arm in position for so long without any support. Also kudos to Jarrod McRae for taking such a physical beating being thrown all over the stage all night, he must feel like he's been in a car wreck by the end of he performance. The choreography by Amanda Durbin was wonderful. The whole cast out did themselves on this. Thanks to everyone for such a great evening and a special thanks to Debra Carter. Of course Dave and I and Frank and Tricia had to go to Braums get hot fudge sundaes after the show. Ice cream it seems is becoming a tradition for the 4 of us, LOL~ Mitzi Hubbard

" RCT Theatre... has hosted a terrific production of a glorious Broadway staple. "Damn Yankees" with music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross.
The key role of the devil, Mr. Applegate, is wonderfully fulfilled by Jordan Tomenga. He has many tricks up his shiny sleeves to mislead the team. But he is not alone. Loree Beth Westbrooks plays Gloria, the spunky reporter who digs for the story of Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, Mo. and brings down the house. "Joe" is played by Brian Hokanson who delivers a solid (Tab Hunter like) performance. If you remember, Tab played that part in the movie. Lola is the sidekick of Applegate and Kim Swarner knocks it out of the ballpark. Whatever Lola wants indeed.
And now the ball players. Jarrod McRae is one of those fabulous utility players who does it all well and this is no exception. His dance and singing leadership leads the entire team. And not to forget the chorines: Jessica Kalil brings great energy to the giggling ladies in the chorus. Bravo to all. This production, with all of the vital ingredients on hand: a comic star, comely chorines, great melodies, and a happy ending make for a audience pleasing show". Carl Youngberg
" I saw your production (Guys & Dolls) last Sunday and I have to say that it is the best ever. The men's singing and dancing chorus was spot on and loved the choreography. Adelaide and Nathan's duet was fantastic. Tell Debra, her new season is starting out to be a line up of great hits. I have told a lot of my friends and am sending this on to them. Hopefully, they too will show up and enjoy it. ~ Mary Boyter
"Just when I think you guys can't get any better, you put on Xanadu. 😂 That show was FABULOUS and I think it's our favorite production now from the last couple of years we've been attending. You guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!!" Stephanie Vorndran

A BEWITCHING TIME IN THE WOODS!
Repertory Company Theatre becomes an enchanted world of magic beans, towering giants, and handsome princes for the darkly humorous and hauntingly beautiful masterpiece by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, Into the Woods. As the Baker and his Wife travel through the forest trying to reverse a witch’s curse, they come across Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and other famous storybook characters all in search of their own wishes…but “happily ever after” turns into a tale of “be careful what you wish for” when granted wishes have unexpected effects. This is Sondheim at his finest, with such memorable songs as “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone

Hilarious Holiday show, more Naughty than Nice for those who prefer their Eggnog spiked.
Repertory Company Theatre kicks off the holiday season with David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries, directed by Michelle Levall and starring, audience favorite, Jordan Tomenga as Crumpet the Elf. Leave the kids at home for this hilariously irreverent holiday show. It’s David Sedaris’ side-splitting send-up of Christmas and his brief, misguided career as a Macy’s elf. Featuring an uproarious soundtrack of holiday tunes, The Santaland Diaries skewers everything we love (and secretly loathe) about the holidays. See what it’s like for the subversive to work at Santaland, where the only thing more plentiful than good cheer is a good case of the giggles. PG 16
Holiday dessert bar available.
Bonus~ Opening by Mia Fisher
