Along with our many friends and colleagues in the Quad City area, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on our daily lives around the globe. Federal, State and Local officials are stressing the importance of social distancing, so with the safety and well-being of our patrons, actors and volunteers in mind Richmond Hill Players has made the difficult decision to suspend operations effective immediately. The suspension means the cancellation of our June, July, and August shows. The RHP Board will be meeting in July to determine next steps.
The Richmond Hill Players Board of Directors wish to express our thanks to those that had already been cast for our June (The Cemetery Club) and July (Vintage Hitchcock) shows and offer our sincere regret at having to cancel these shows.
Please continue to monitor our website and Facebook page for updates over the summer. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon in The Barn.
On behalf of the RHP Board,
Richmond Hill Players started as a dream of a half dozen people in 1968 when they staged a single production, Molière's "The Miser." The group converted the top floor of an old dairy barn to fit their needs and has never looked back. The recently renovated Barn now approximately 160 per performance in a rare and unique in-the-round environment beneath the original, rustic timbers. Approximately 150 active members are involved on and off-stage each year. Actors, directors, backstage personnel, support staffs, and audience are drawn from a 60-mile radius that includes cities in Illinois and Iowa. Currently, the Players stage all six productions at the Barn in a season running from April through November. RHP prides itself in presenting a wide variety of comedies, dramas, and thrillers that local audiences might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. The group strives to stretch both audiences and participants, seldom hesitating to schedule productions that present casting or technical challenges.
