Rock Ridge Performing Arts

Rock Ridge Performing Arts Generating a theatrical community for Rock Ridge High School's Theatre Program, inclusive of participants, family members and supporters.
(56)

Mr. John Duellman, the principal of Rock Ridge High School met Mr. Cimino-Johnson a top the Administration Building for LCPS. Right away, the two of them agreed that the community of RRHS desired a strong, college and career ready program, that built community and served the students of RRHS. In its first year, RRHS produced "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Beauty and the Beast". With the support of the community, RRHS has grown into a flourishing program. Most recently it was awarded "Outstanding School" from the Educational Theatre Association. Each year, RRHS strives to foster community, provide college and career ready opportunities, and challenge the students to create, innovate, and inspire one show at a time.

Mission: MISSION STATEMENT: Rock Ridge Performing Arts provides avenues for artistic development, creative and innovative problem solving skills, and inspiring social and emotional growth through a comprehensive theatre education program. VISION STATEMENT: Rock Ridge Performing Arts will achieve this by: 1. Providing a rigorous college and career ready program. 2. Creating opportunities that foster and build community locally, statewide, nationally and internationally. 3. Advocating for our students, school, and stakeholders through training, toolkits, and partnerships

I joined RRPA the summer before my freshman year with the Annie Jr. camp. After this one show, I knew I had found my second home. Around 20 shows later, my love for this company grows every single day. I have had the honor of serving on the student board, directing, choreographing, performing, and leading marketing. I am forever grateful for the lessons and opportunities RRPA has given me, as well as the overwhelming support and love. Without RRPA and the mentorship of all of our directors I wouldn’t be where I am today! My mentors, directors, cast mates, and family have taken me on a journey that truly did impact my life one story at a time.

RRPA has been a joy to be a part of, albeit being a short time in my life. My first RRPA show was Newsies, and since then I've been enamoured with the program, going on to do Peter Pan: A Steampunk Adventure, and help out with Big Fish as a quick change and hair & makeup artist. This wonderful company has helped me so much that I can't even begin to describe. Thanks for impacting my life, one story at a time.

I have been a member of RRPA for 4 years now with my first show being the spring musical Tarzan. I’ve had the opportunity to play so many roles, from Jack Kelly in Newsies- to a soldier in Aida. Now I’m excited to take my next step and learn as much as I can in New York! I found my passion for performing in RRPA, and I am so thankful for everything the company has taught me to get me to where I am today.

I joined RRPA during my sophomore year and my first show was Mary Poppins and it was, to put it simply, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I have been lucky enough to be a part of the design team and/or build/tech crew for Aladdin, 9-to-5, Bright Star, Peter Pan, Legally Blonde, and Big Fish. RRPA and the directors showed me my love for design and for that I am beyond thankful. Thank you to my fellow seniors and EVERY SINGLE PERSON at RRPA for showing where hard work and passion can take you. Love you guys.

At the Virginia Thespian Conference this year, 36 of RRPA’s students received a superior rating on their individual events. With these ratings, the students have earned themselves a spot to perform these IE’s at the national level. Because the International Thespian Festival has been moved to a virtual platform, we have decided to honor and showcase those with superior ratings over the next few weeks! Nothing can replace performing and presenting the IE’s live, but we hope that we can honor the time and artistry that has gone into our students work! Congratulations to all of our students, and keep a look out for our Superior IE posts highlighting our students work ❤️

I joined RRPA my freshman year when I auditioned for Tarzan and got my first role as a butterfly. Through each and every role I learned more about myself and not only how to act but how to be a better person. I’ve met so many amazing people and I can’t wait to use my skills learned in RRPA to take me even further in the future!
