SYNOPSIS

This heartwarming romantic comedy, narrated by a group of Christmas carolers, tells the story of Della and Jim, who are desperately in love with each other but also very poor. In their attempts to buy each other proper Christmas gifts, a strange twist of fate leads the couple to find the perfect gifts for one another - but at an unexpected cost. Though they may not have the perfect Christmas, the couple learns about the importance of the gift of love in this beautiful adaptation of the story by O. Henry.

WRCT is committed to providing productions that captivate audiences. We strive to maintain affordable ticket prices, making live theatre accessible to our entire community.  

 

WRCT is run by one full-time staff member, our Board of Directors, key lead volunteer positions, and our numerous loyal core volunteers and participants. This means we have the luxury and resources available to provide full training and on-boarding for beginners. We work alongside you, supporting whatever you need, so you never feel overwhelmed. You are encouraged to step forward to tackle something you are interested in, without already having experience.

Auditions are open for all! Experienced actors are regularly joined on the WRCT stage by those who have never performed before.

Backstage Techies

No show is possible without those working behind the curtain. Try your hand at lighting, sound, or set design. Or contribute to costumes, hair, 

make-up, and props.

Our Very Own Venue

Owning our own theatre affords us many opportunities but it also includes massive upkeep. Help with set-up, general cleaning, and maintenance is always appreciated.

Final Notes

Directors are needed at the helm of every show. We support directors to choose their own material and encourage submissions to our 

MainStage season.

Support WRCT

WRCT is a nonprofit organization dependent on contributions, sponsorships, and grants. The proceeds from ticket sales cover only a small portion of our expenses, which means we rely on the generosity of our patrons to continue bringing quality, live theatre to the Wisconsin Rapids area.
 

You can help us in a variety of ways.

We would certainly appreciate a monetary contribution to the general overhead of WRCT.

You can also specify how your donation should be used toward the costs of our facilities, productions, or specific items.
