Rock Ridge Performing Arts

Generating a theatrical community for Rock Ridge High School's Theatre Program, inclusive of participants, family members and supporters.

Mr. John Duellman, the principal of Rock Ridge High School met Mr. Cimino-Johnson a top the Administration Building for LCPS. Right away, the two of them agreed that the community of RRHS desired a strong, college and career ready program, that built community and served the students of RRHS. In its first year, RRHS produced "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Beauty and the Beast". With the support of the community, RRHS has grown into a flourishing program. Most recently it was awarded "Outstanding School" from the Educational Theatre Association. Each year, RRHS strives to foster community, provide college and career ready opportunities, and challenge the students to create, innovate, and inspire one show at a time.

Mission: MISSION STATEMENT: Rock Ridge Performing Arts provides avenues for artistic development, creative and innovative problem solving skills, and inspiring social and emotional growth through a comprehensive theatre education program. VISION STATEMENT: Rock Ridge Performing Arts will achieve this by: 1. Providing a rigorous college and career ready program. 2. Creating opportunities that foster and build community locally, statewide, nationally and internationally. 3. Advocating for our students, school, and stakeholders through training, toolkits, and partnerships

Rock ridge performing arts will be conducting a diaper drive throughout the last two weeks of January to benefit those in need who are receiving support from a diaper bank. Students at rock ridge may drop off diapers in the collection bin by the black box. Audience members attending the upcoming performances of Brightstar are encouraged to bring diapers for donation with them to the show
