Message from the President


As we enter into our 40th anniversary year, the Board has embraced new ideas and concepts.  Over the year you will be invited to attend our 40th anniversary gala and there will be a new youth focused production.  In addition, the Board is excited to embark upon a strategic fundraising campaign to help raise funds for one of your favourite charities  Royal City Musical Productions Inc.  Im sure you all know by now that RCMPI is a registered charity but in our history (or at least the history that I remember) we have not embarked upon a strategic membership fundraising campaign to raise funds to keep this wonderful group going.  We thought our 40th year was a good time to start.  Within the next month we will be sending an appeal letter and pledge form, via email, to each of our adult members.  Our goal, to raise $10,000.  When you consider how many members we have, it is not hard to imagine reaching if not surpassing this goal.  As a registered charity, you will be issued a tax receipt for your gift which you can use when you file your 2018 tax returns.

As most of you know, RCMPI has been a big part of my life.  Since my first experience in 1980 to see Camelot, to my first time behind the desk in 1986 and my first time on stage in 1987, I treasure the memories of rehearsals and shows over the years.  It is my family away from my family (when my family is not in a show).  I know when I consider my gift to RCMPI, I will be thinking about what this company has meant to me and how I can help give back to ensure the vitality of RCMPI for my child, for everyone elses children, for my friends and for future generations of performers and collaborators.

Sue Lawrenson 
President, Royal City Musical Productions Inc.
