Russell Community Theater announces 2019 Season

RUSSELL — Russell Community Theater has announced its 2019 slate of plays.

“About Time,” written by Tom Cole and directed by Bob Roe, opens the season April 30 through May 4, at the RCT Playhouse located at 5th and Kansas in Russell. In “About Time,” an elderly married couple is found in the kitchen of their condominium at breakfast, lunch, dinner and finally for a late snack. The couple talks about everything under the sun, including food, sex, children and aging. She is slowing down some and he can’t get around like he once could, but they are both still sharp as tacks. Through the four scenes, they grapple with what it means to share – and come to the end of – a life together.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridge) [revised]” is written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield. Mitch Eaton will direct the summer production which will be presented June 25-29 at the RCT Playhouse.

The 2019 season wraps up at the RCT Playhouse Oct. 8-12 with “Four Old Broads,” written by Leslie Kimbell and directed by Crystal Craig. 

Russell Community Theater is a non-profit, volunteer-driven theater company. RCT is supported financially solely through ticket admissions and gifts from those supportive of community theater. Since its inception in 1986, RCT has presented 94 full-scale theatrical productions. For more information, call 785-483-4057 or find on Facebook.
