Ruston Community Theater was formed December 19, 1977 by a group of local citizens who loved theater and wanted to create an opportunity for the people of Ruston to direct, act, and attend local community productions. When the Dixie Center for the Arts opened its doors in 2006, RCT moved in as a priority partner. Four productions are presented each season.

Ruston Community Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for the upcoming youth show Annie, directed by Steele Moegle, and Sponsored by Jonesboro State Bank - Pledge 10 Grant. Based on the popular comic strip, this Broadway hit musical features lyrics by Martin Charnin, music by Charles Strouse, and book by Thomas Meehan. It was adapted into film in 1982 and again in 2014.
The show dates will be June 20-23.
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
For the first time, our summer youth show will be a full length musical: Annie!! We invite all youth ages 8-18 to audition for any role. Persons up to age 23 may audition for the many adult roles including Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, Grace, Lily, Rooster, FDR, and FDR’s cabinet.

In mid to late May, rehearsals will move to weekdays from 4:00pm-6:00pm with some Saturdays and Sundays. RehearsaIs will begin on Thursday, April 4th.
