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.

King Lear Nov. 7-22, 2914

"... the current Shakespeare Players production of "King Lear" at MuCCC is one of the group's best recent productions — strongly cast and intelligently directed." -- David Raymond; City Newspaper; Nov. 19, 2014.

City Newspaper has published its review of King Lear, and it is glowing.
