Redwood Theatre Company is a nonprofit organization based in Sonoma County, California. RTC features professional artists in touring shows, black box studio productions, a professional ice theatre and virtual projects. RTC's mission is to share professional performances with the community through world-class productions, youth performance camps, outreach programs and full-inclusion opportunities.
RTC began as a group of friends, seeking artistic growth and an opportunity to create and produce their own productions to share with the community.
Over the past few years, we have produced many musical cabarets, staged readings, master classes and 15 full-scale theatrical productions, two of which, were original musicals, written by local artists.
In 2019, Redwood Theatre Company became a 501(c)3 Nonprofit through AIWP
WHO WE ARE TODAY
We are now a company of professional performers focused on producing virtual shows, live productions and original works.
RTC also hosts a variety of youth performance workshops and outreach programs.
Introducing a new professional branch of RTC: Redwood Ice Theatre Company.
RITC features professional figure skaters and world competitors in both live and virtual productions.
Our ice theatre began during that strange time in 2020. When most theaters and performance venues had gone dark, we wanted to find new, innovative ways to share a little inspiration and joy.
Our goal is to create high level productions and make professional ice skating shows more available to the community.

Showcasing a variety of different performance styles at select wineries in Sonoma County.
Featuring pop singers, hip hop dancers, contemporary ballet and figure skating on artificial ice.

Since the theatre community was unable to host live productions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RTC created a virtual show series in collaboration with FTA Productions.
These shows were designed to be a free gift for the community. The purpose was to spread some joy and inspiration during the difficult shut-down.
This series was such a success, RTC is now planning to continue creating regular virtual shows in the future.
