Rockwall, TX-July 5, 2024 – Rockwall Community Playhouse, your hometown theater (and a qualified 501C3), located at 609 E. Rusk St. in Rockwall has amazing shows for the community. Not only can one attend the fabulous shows presented, but can audition to be in a show! All is revealed on the theater’s website,

Coming up on July 5th and 6th is Pure Imagination with the STAR Players. These amazing folks 16 and up with Downs’ Syndrome, assisted by their dedicated “buddies” produce a full-length musical for your enjoyment. But, beware, they may have even more fun than you do! Each year these talented actors, many of whom return year after year, will entertain and enthrall you. Don’t miss it. The tickets are on the website for only $10!

We also have shows for teens and children. Our next teen show is Descendants, opening July 26 and running Fri., Sat. and Sun. through the first weekend in August. The story involves those imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost – home of the most infamous villains who ever lived – the teenaged children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil and have never ventured off the island… until now. When the four troublemakers are sent to attend prep school alongside the children of beloved Disney heroes, they have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good? What do you think? Come and find out!

Our next regular season show is the musical, Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder, directed by Clair Williamson. The musical revolves around Montague, or Monty, an amiable young Brit who discovers a dark family secret following his dear mother’s death. The woman never revealed that because she married Monty’s musician father, she was disinherited from the family D’Ysquith, a name that in the play’s Edwardian setting is synonymous with wealth, property and influence. Monty writes a letter to one of the relatives and attempts to get a job. When he’s told to get lost, he decides to collect his inheritance by offing the eight cousins that stand in his way of becoming Earl of Highhurst. It opens on Sept. 20 and will run Fridays through Sundays until Oct. 6. (Auditions can be booked on the website for July 27 or 28.)

You can’t beat a night out at the theater, especially when you don’t even have to cross the lake! Come and enjoy!!
