RAPA Family Theatre’s 2017-18 Season

By on July 26, 2017


RAPA Family Theatre, a professional troupe of adult and select youth actors, brings theatre and literature to life for children and their families.

The first show of the season is the hit Broadway musical, A Year with Frog and Toad. Based off the classic books, Frog and Toad will be on stage for three weeks from September 30-October 15, 2017 directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson. This is a story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

Run, run, run as fast as you can, but you can catch The Gingerbread Man from February 3-11, 2018. Directed by Adele Fico, the story follows a gingerbread cookie, which promptly leaps out of the oven and takes young Sally on a merry adventure to see travelling players perform in a nearby town.

Set sail to Treasure Island from April 28-May 6, 2018 concluding the 2017-18 Family Theatre season, directed by Marge Mattioli. Jim Hawkins sets his course for adventure to find secret treasure!

Additionally, this summer, Rumpelstiltskin will be performed from July 8-August 6, 2017. Starring Rochester favorites, Marge Mattioli and Billy DeMetsenare, and directed by Johnson.

Community organizations (including schools) can now book performances throughout the week.

All performances are approximately one hour in length plus a short intermission. And as always, children can “Meet the Cast” after each performance, with photo opportunities, autographs, and special moments.

This year, RAPA Family Theatre will be developing a Sensory Friendly Performance program specifically geared towards audience members with autism and special needs. Frog and Toad, The Gingerbread Man, and Treasure Island will all feature one Sensory Friendly performance. Details on this program can be found at
