A Message from the President...

     2016 has been a wonderful year for Royal City Musical Productions! First of all, I would like to thank the members of our company who continually show us what incredible talent we have here in Guelph. Many of you have been a part of both Into the Woods and The Wizard of Oz in 2016. The talent that has been on the River Run Stage has been some of the best I’ve seen. Secondly, I would like to thank our board of directors. I am so proud of all of the work they have done to keep our company thriving this year. Each member of our board sits on various committees and in addition to, have been involved with both shows this year. Their commitment to this company is bar none, and we’re lucky to have them on
board. I look forward to seeing what 2017 will bring RCMPI. Finally, on behalf of the Board of Directors for RCMPI, I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

CONGRATULATIONS! To the amazing cast and crew of The Wizard of Oz!  What a successful run!  Our audiences absolutely loved every minute from Dorothy (Breanne Tice) singing Over the Rainbow, Toto (Tigger) trying to get out of the basket, to the Munchkins snickering in the audience and dancing around the stage, to our terrifying Wicked Witch (Jane Martin) melting, and for the amazing and gigantic set pieces and more! Special mention to the directorial team- Karen Allen, Susan Lawrenson and Meghan Barron for their dream come true- as one of our largest productions, this truly has raised the bar for our upcoming shows!

In our recent review of committees, we have established two new committees to take the place of our Resource Development and Facilities Committee.

The new Fundraising and Sponsorship Committee will take over the responsibilities related to fundraising, an integral part of any charitable organisation, including RCMPI.

Our new committee is in need of people interested in these areas. Your commitment would be to attend a monthly meeting of 2 hours maximum, look for and develop innovative fundraising initiatives, and identify possible sponsorship opportunities within your personal and professional contacts. If you think this is something that might interest you and you can make the commitment, please contact Gary Roche at

In addition, RCMPI has created an ad-hoc committee tasked with planning activities to celebrate our upcoming 40th anniversary. The Anniversary Committee will be tasked with developing special events and initiatives in conjunction with RCMPI's standing committees for the 2018/2019 season. If you are interested in joining this committee please contact Jane Martin at for more information.

Have you been hanging out in the shadows?  Had a break from performing?  Have you been enjoying being an audience member and watching RCMPI's amazing shows, but notice that something is still missing in your theatre life?!?!?!  Well, we have a fantastic opportunity for you!! The Social Committee is looking to add some more members to it's busy team!! The committee is responsible for organizing our amazing outings as a company and trying to find new opportunities to keep our membership involved!  Whether you are on or off stage this is a great committee to start in and see what happens behind the scenes of RCMPI!! If you are interested please contact Holly Reid at
