The Rochester Community Players

The Shakespeare Players of Rochester

A program of the Rochester Community Players

In 1994, RCP created the Shakespeare Players program as a program of the Rochester Community Players.  The program was founded by Peter Scribner, and the first production was Twelfth Night, November 19, 1994.  Through the summer of 2011, RCPO's Shakespeare Players has staged 34 Shakespeare productions. Each July, we stage a free Shakespeare at the Highland Park Bowl; indoor productions are staged at MuCCC.

Now playing:


Henry V concludes the “Henriad” Cycle that began in Spring with Richard II.  Young King Henry V takes the throne in a most contentious atmosphere and must learn fast how to lead in war, love, and politics.

From the court to the fields of battle Henry challenges the very role of a King and the Rochester Community Players will add a further twist to that idea by casting a woman in the role of King Henry.  Shakespeare Players regular Kate Sherman will be playing Henry V this November.

Henry V performances will be:

November 6, 7, 12 -14, 19 – 21 at 7:30pm

November 8 & 15 at 2pm

at MuCCC 142 Atlantic Ave
