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.
