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.
