On behalf of our Board, artists, staff and volunteers, welcome to Richmond Triangle Players! Since 1993, RTP has produced hundreds of plays – including several world premieres – most of which would not have been produced anywhere else in the area. A decade ago, the idea of our own performance venue was just a dream. By sharing that dream, we brought together hundreds of people in our community who believed in our mission and in our message of diversity and inclusion.  In a few short years, we have accomplished what many people believed to be impossible and transformed Richmond Triangle Players from a “fringe” theater into one of the best-known and beloved cultural institutions in Central Virginia in our glorious venue, the Robert B. Moss Theatre. So thank you for joining us. We hope whether this is your first visit to RTP – or your fiftieth – you will be with us for many years to come!

Recent Accolades

Richmond Triangle Players has won acclaim from its growing and diverse audiences, as well as from the Richmond Theatre Critics Circle, with over 100 “Best” nominations, the inaugural People’s Choice Award, and awards for Best Play and Best Musical twice each. The readers of STYLE Weekly have twice voted Richmond Triangle Players as Richmond’s Best Local Theatre Company, in addition to naming RTP in its “Top Three” every year.

In 2018, Richmond Triangle Players was honored at the statewide Equality Virginia dinner as one of the year’s “OUTstanding Virginians,” and in 2019 was privileged to be named a  “Richmond History Maker,” by the Valentine Museum and Capital Region Collaborative – the first theatre company to be recognized for that honor.

Additional plaudits have come from the national publication Playbill.com, which named RTP as one of the 15 most important theaters of its kind in the nation, as well as in an editorial from the famously conservative Richmond Times-Dispatch which said, in part: “RTP has been consistently willing to explore tough issues involving people who are gay in America and the challenges — and triumphs — they experience … Their dramatic success here has opened doors and opened minds the old-fashioned way — through laughter, tears, and telling truth.”

Have you ever wondered how a show at RTP comes together? How we cast our productions? What happens in a rehearsal? What a director does? Or how a team of people comes up with a unified vision for what a production should look like?

Our acclaimed Sneak Peaks pull back to curtain on all this and more, including personal encounters with actors and others who make it all happen and visits with guest artists from across the country.

You can secure your invitation to these events by becoming a donor to our Annual Fund! Take a look at the various benefit levels, and then Donate Now to join the fun!
