Our organization was founded in 1980 by a group of teachers in the Riverhead School District who shared a common love for theater and wanted to create a place where like-minded people could come together to put on a musical every year. Since its inception, the group has expanded and now includes members of all ages from our Riverhead community and neighboring towns.

RFCT maintains its strong connection to the district. Since 1985, we have used proceeds from our productions to participate in Riverhead High School's scholarship program. Each year, a number of students from the Senior class who have shown support for the arts are chosen for a one-time scholarship towards their college education. Proceeds also support various needs of the district's Fine Arts Department, including microphones, props, and cost assistance for High School performances. Several of RFCT's annual shows are performed in the High School auditorium.

For decades, RFCT mounted a big annual musical. In recent years, we have expanded our repertoire to include musical revues. In 2012, recognizing the positive influence the arts can have on our youth, RFCT added an annual Youth Production. Most recently, 2019 saw the debut of a Winter/Spring season, which so far has featured non-musical plays.


RFCT's Mission Statement:

1) To enhance the education of the community by the presentation, production, and staging of theatrical performances.

2) To promote the study and improvement of, and to stimulate public interest in the dramatic arts.


3) To foster interest in and to promote the undertaking of dramatic art endeavors in the community.

4) To promote and encourage the study, production, and appreciation of all forms of dramatic and theater arts.


5) To produce plays, operettas, operas and other forms of dramatic representation for the entertainment and enrichment of the community.

6) To develop talents and skills among the members of the corporation and to that end, produce and develop workshop productions, and to afford the residents of the Town of Riverhead and surrounding communities an opportunity to participate in dramatic activities.
