ABOUT US

Ruston Community Theater was formed December 19, 1977 by a group of local citizens who loved theater and wanted to create an opportunity for the people of Ruston to direct, act, and attend local community productions. The names of the incorporators were; Mrs. Helen M. Thompson, Ms. Gladys Moore and Ms. Jane Sheppard. 

 

Charter members; Jeanelle Alexander, Bruce Campbell, Mr. & Mrs. Henry L. Campbell, Jr., Mr & Mrs. Gregory Chapman, Mr. & Mrs. Larry Jarrell, Sidney Landman, Mr. & Mrs. John Leich, Mrs. Gladys Moore, Mrs. Helen Moncrief, Ms. Ann Noble, Mr. & Mrs. Joe G. Sheppard, Mr. & Mrs. David Tucker, Dr. & Mrs. W.Y. Thompson, Ms. Carolyn Young, Bendel L. Tarleton, Ms. Beverly M. Davis, Dr. Reba K. Neel, Mr. & Mrs. W.R. Rives, Mr. & Mrs. Harold Faulkner, Dr. & Mrs. Frank N. Edens, Dr. & Mrs. John D. Winters, Dr. & Mrs. Allen Williams, Mr. & Mrs. William D.

Without a facility the group preformed in various places around the city of Ruston. There was a need for this type of entertainment, and RCT continued to grow over the years. With the renovations of the Dixie Theater, RCT found its permanent home. 

 

When the Dixie Center for the Arts opened its doors in 2006, RCT moved in as a priority partner. Four plays are presented each season. RCT is governed by a board of directors elected by season membership.
