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.
The Resident Acting Company has been putting on performances since 2018. Before the pandemic we produced script in hand performances at The Players in New York City.
During the dark days of the pandemic The RAC produced a series of online events called: Play Dates
Audience members read a play in advance and then joined a live Zoom meeting that was hosted by Artistic Associate Kate Farrington. Kate gave a presentation of the background of the play and playwright, actors read selected scenes, and we ended with a Q and A where the audience could join the conversation.
