TALK ABOUT A MURDER

Talk about a murder (002).jpg

June 2 at 2:00 PM

June 3 at 6:00 PM

The Nickie and Ricky Rivers Show is broadcasting their talk show on the road and it's a bumpy ride. This show features D-list guests including the Vegas Lounge singing team of Shecky Scagnetti and Edie Buffet, new age guru: Celeste Ethereal, home economist; Phoebe St Self and gossip columnist: Polly Pettegolo. Everyone is on the show to plug their own "shows" and what starts out to be a yawn fest "talk show" gets heated with a few ego and personality clashes. Sure, it sounds like every other talk show but, this particular show kills! Literally. One of the featured guests is murdered. Who would want someone dead while live on the air? Or is the question, who wouldn't? Can this mystery help the ratings? Must the Show go on? Might as well, there's nothing else on.

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.

You can help us in a variety of ways.

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