Auditions are hard. We sincerely appreciate the courage it takes put yourself on the line and to risk what feels like rejection when you don’t get the role you want, or even a part in a show. We also know that the casting decisions we make will inevitably disappoint some of you.
Our directors bring over 45 years of directing youth and community theatre programs and we trust their decisions. We are committed to keeping exceptional performances at the heart of what we do, and so we want to offer every student an opportunity to learn from their audition experience and their time onstage with other performers. We also value the wide range of ages that participate so that many of our younger performers can learn a great deal from our more experienced actors.

And here's what a few of our summer camp participants have to say:
"Through RB Productions, I was able to meet new friends and see existing theatre friends. RB is always the highlight of my summer. It is an amazing experience and the shows that they put together in only a week are astounding!"
"RB was an AMAZING experience for our child! This was such a positive opportunity where all of the kids were able to work together to reach a common goal! Everyone participates and cooperates during this process. This is a journey where every child is filled with a sense of belonging, significance , and FUN! What an opportunity of growth and self-discovery! Thank-you for this gift RB!"
"It was the best of times, it was the intensest of times. It was the age of fun, it was the age of focus. It was the epoch of song, it was the epoch of dance. In a word, it was RB."
"RB is one of the best things I’ve ever experienced. It teaches patience, strength and true emotion and acting. As much as it is work it is fun, and the people you meet there will stay with you in memory the rest of your life. It is truly an experience one will never forget."
"I have been in over eight productions with RB and I absolutely love doing shows here. All the people that you get to work with when you are involved are wonderful and it is a great company whether you are eight, eighteen, or even an adult to have fun and perform in a production that is bound to be fabulous. It is where I began theater and it taught me a lot of what I know today. It is the perfect place for beginning as well as more experienced actors and actresses. I would recommend it to anyone and I am most definitely coming back."
