About Us

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. The names of the incorporators were: Mrs. Helen M. Thompson, Ms. Gladys Moore and Ms. Jane Sheppard.

Locations 

Without a facility the group performed in various places around the city of Ruston. There was a need for this type of entertainment, and RCT continued to grow over the years. With the renovations in the Dixie Theater, RCT found its permanent home. 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. RCT is governed by a board of directors elected by season members.
