We believe theatre engages best with audiences when it is created by artists who have worked together for many years. We are a company of actors who are dedicated to producing a repertory, strongly rooted in the classics, which reflects, enlightens, and informs our contemporary life.


Never have we, the RAC, felt more inspired by our mission:


“Our strength lies in the power of our ensemble, rooted in the classics which we know reflects, enlightens and informs our contemporary culture. We challenge conventional casting ideas about gender and age. We champion the inclusion of all ethnicities and identifications onto our stage, and into our company and audiences.”


All the world is a stage and all of us merely players, and how this act ends and the next begins is up to all of us.

October 1st 6PM ON ZOOM
A Raisin In The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

One of the pivotal works of the American theatre, Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun introduces us to the Youngers; a family in flux. After a lifetime of struggle just to get by, a modest inheritance might be the key to their hopes and dreams for a brighter future. They are up against not only the prejudices of the world around them, but their own assumptions about what that future looks like. Writing with passion, humor, and great love, Hansberry’s masterpiece asks us to question the reality (and the value) of the American Dream.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
By Bertolt Brecht

A Chicago mobster is looking to make his name—so naturally he’s got his sights set on the cauliflower market. German playwright Bertolt Brecht’s sharp political satire on the rise of Nazi Germany skewers not just coming to power of Adolf Hitler and his followers, but the machinations of would-be dictators anywhere and everywhere.

Everybody by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

What would you do if this were truly your last day on earth? How would you say goodbye? In the end, what, or who, mattered most to you? In the late Middle Ages, the blockbuster play Everyman chronicled one soul’s journey from life to death. 500 years later American playwright Brendan Jacobs-Jenkins’ playful and compassionate adaptation Everybody reimagines that journey—both the celebration and the loss—for the contemporary world.

A Woman of No Importance
by Oscar Wilde

In all he did, Oscar Wilde dazzled. First as poet and novelist, then as playwright, he captivated London society with his airy humor, while gently mocking the very audience he played to. A Woman of No Importance invites us to a party where the routine social pleasantries mask a much juicier tale. A worldly man who once saved his reputation faces the woman who sacrificed hers—but she may have gained far more than she lost. Blending sly upper-class wit with wry realpolitik, Wilde asks us to consider—in this (ever so polite) battle of the sexes, who really came out ahead?
