 Coming Soon – RPE is putting the finishing touches on our 2017-2018 Season. We will present:

The Playboy of the Western World, the most Irish of Irish plays that embodies the very spirit of telling tales;

Angel Street (Gaslight), a Victorian thriller that still resonates today;

Animal Farm, a cautionary tale for our times and for all times;

The Rover, an exceedingly funny restoration romp that launched the phrase “the battle of the sexes.”

The complete 2017-2018 Season Schedule, with performance dates and subscription prices, will be published soon!

Thank You from Role Players Ensemble

It’s all for You – It’s all because of You
