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 fortunate to be a community theatre run by full time, careered, theatre and business practitioners, along side our core participants and volunteers. This means we have the luxury of providing full training to brand-new volunteers. 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.  

Join in the drama

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.

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