Godspell, an immensely successful rock opera originally composed by Stephen Schwartz, broke new ground in its stage treatment of the historical Jesus Christ when it was first produced on Broadway in 1971. Based on the Gospel according Matthew, it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables.
Join us in the sanctuary for this special production with amazing talent and direction, and memorable music! It’s a great show for all ages.Bruce Miller (former Artistic Director of Virginia Rep) is directing the youth performers, with Suzanne Riehl serving as Music Director.

A Little Piece of Heaven
By Matthew Carlin
River City Players
Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in the sassy elderly Lily, although their relationship certainly doesn't start out that way. But there's something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry. Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect, trust and love in this place where long lost things are finally found, and prayers are answered.

Austin has lived his entire life with one article of faith, he’s convinced that something terrible is bound to happen to him. One night, at a party, overlooking Boston harbor, he has the pleasure of rekindling a romance begun almost thirty years ago with Ruth. Comically, and sometimes painfully, Ruth and Austin rediscover each other and themselves while a bevy of free-spirited other party guests remind them of the infinite possibilities that life holds, should one only choose to pursue them.
“Later Life” at the faith we place in our self-fulfilling prophecies and what happens when we’re given the opportunity not to make them come true.
. "Charmingly clever yet immeasurably touching." —NY Post

BIGHT HALF LIFE
By Tanya Barfield
Direction by Melissa Rayford
Winner of the 2016 Lambda Literary Award for Best Play, BRIGHT HALF LIFE charts the complexity of commitment, relationships, and marriage by following the ups and downs of a modern lesbian couple. Their story is told through a series of fast-moving, fragmented memories of their 40-year relationship – from awkward first conversations to steamy workplace romances, from heartburn to heartache to building a family, and to what becomes of a relationship when it explodes. Produced in Celebration of Richmond Triangle Players' 25th Anniversary Season. Starring Kylie Clark and Amber Martinez.
