Winter Frost

Whether short or long, humorous or dramatic, Robert Frost’s poetry is pure, beautiful, relatable, and soothing. “Winter Frost” is a gift of healing to the Wisconsin Rapids community, and all other communities, from the people who continue to focus on the beauty, the possibilities, and the spirit in all of us.


Thank you to all who have supported the Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre over the years and, especially, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mainstage LIVE May 21, 22, and 23 of 2021 "Al Was Right" A Dark Comedy

A 40 minute dark comedy by: Ryan Armstrong


The future. Moments before World War IV but after the collapse of technology and order. As the Mexi-American army prepares to defend their bunker against an invading army of Canadians, it is a hard time to find any sense of intelligence. But, all's well that ends well. Maybe a marriage. Maybe a funeral. Maybe a Deus ex machina. Who knows in this post-apocalyptic dark comedy.

Directed By: Michael Barrett

WRCT has "Ghost Seats" available in our theatre. 

A "Ghost Seat Sponsor" will be recognized on a list of valued sponsors that helped WRCT during these very difficult COVID-19 pandemic times. (CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW)

Your name (individual or family), as you would like it, will be printed and assigned to the "Ghost Seat" you are sponsoring.

For our patron's safety, all of these "Ghost Seats" sponsored will be left empty for distancing when the theatre reopens.

Did you miss WRCT's Laugh-In? You can check out the Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre's tribute to the classic comedy variety show at the following links.

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.  


An Actor Prepares

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. 

Cast Camaraderie

I enjoy so many aspects of being involved in WRCT! From acting to working the concessions area! I love working with these people!
