Richmond Triangle Players’ has announced its 24th season and launched a new series of staged or concert readings. The new “Sister Series” will complement or illuminate the Mainstage works. In addition, RTP will also continue its cabaret series, as well as hosting some of RVA’s other acclaimed companies.


As for that thumbnail rendering, Managing Director Phil Crosby says, “We never got a chance to complete our exterior renovations back in 2009, as we were still reeling from the recession. Last fall, we received a challenge grant from The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, which we matched, and we are now constructing the marquee we always wanted!” (See it full size at the bottom of this page)
