“While all of our mainstages are always fun, performing Take Me or Leave Me with Mihika at Broadway Desserts this year was so memorable for me. It was a performance where me and one of my best friends got to relax and have fun. I hope everyone in this company always stays true to who they are.”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Julia Mola! Julia plans to major in General Studies at Northern Virginia Community College next fall, and we wish her the absolute best! Congratulations Julia, we will miss you!
“Walking onto the Lied stage at ITF 2019 for the first time and just looking out into the audience, knowing we were going to perform for that many people is one of my favorite memories from RRPA. My advice is to not let theatre take over your life enough to stop doing your schoolwork! I know from experience it is not very pleasant!”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Jack Gould! Jack plans to major in Acting at Elon University next fall, and we wish him the absolute best! Congratulations Jack, always remember, “Yes, and!”
“What I enjoyed most about RRPA was throwing myself into the wall every show of Shrek as the bobble head man. If I could give any advice to underclassmen, it’d be that your time will come. Your time will always come.”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Stephen Lewis-Hudson! Stephen plans to major in Nursing at Virginia Commonwealth University next fall, and we wish him the absolute best! Congratulations Stephen, we will miss your beautiful falsetto!
“I’ve been in and out of RRPA, but even my memories from freshman year are some of the most memorable, like going to NYC and having the time of my life with my group. My advice for underclassmen is that life moves on with or without you, if you get left behind just make sure to catch the next train.”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Jazz Lowe! Jazz plans to major in General Studies at Northern Virginia Community College next fall, and we wish her the absolute best! Congratulations Jazz, we will miss you!
“One of my most memorable moments are when everyone’s messing around in our DE theatre class, because that class is just so close. I’d tell underclassmen, be yourself. I know it can be scary at first but being a RRPA member has showed me that you can be yourself.”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Elizabeth Pruiksma! Elizabeth plans to major in Architectural Design at the University of Missouri next fall, and we’re beyond excited for her! Congratulations Elizabeth, you will always live on as Pete Jr.!

Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Maddie Kesler! Maddie plans to major in Musical Theatre at Slippery Rock University next fall, and we’re so excited to see where her future leads her! Congratulations Maddie, we will miss your perfecto accents!
“My favorite RRPA memory has to be finding out that I would be playing Kira and Xanadu! The whole cast was incredibly supportive and uplifting and I will forever be grateful for that cast and crew. My advice is to try everything you can! Do tech! Do acting! Do directing! Do stage management! And attend build days! I’ve learned so much just this year by branching out more and I regret not doing it sooner!”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Sam Cooper! Sam plans to major in Music Business at Belmont University next fall, and we’re so excited for him! Congratulations Sam, we’ll always miss your Memphis Lives In Me solo!

“I’ve loved getting to hangout with new friends, and getting to participate in the boys’ pre-show shenanigans during Xanadu. My advice is to be yourself, advocate for yourself, don't be afraid to take a mental health day!”
Our next Senior Celebration for the Class of 2022 is Megan Langsam! Megan plans to major in Education at University of Massachusetts Amherst next fall, and we couldn’t be prouder of them! Congratulations Megan, we will miss our “Small but Mighty”!
“I’ve enjoyed every moment I’ve had here, day in and day out. Any time that tech crew was doing a big build day or strike with trash runs or just hanging out and goofing off backstage during shows has been my favorite. The entirety of build and run crew for my first show Newsies, the Xanadu winter break build day, and the 4/4 Matilda cueing rehearsal will forever be some of my favorite experiences with this company.
Tech crew is the most supportive and incredible group of hardworking and knowledge-seeking people in existence. As a member of tech crew, you will learn immeasurable life skills (like how to fail, problem solve, and build a wall) that you can’t learn anywhere else while having dance parties and sing-a-longs during rehearsals or build days.”
