Rochester Civic Theatre
Theaters & Cinemas in Rochester, MN
Our History: In 1951, a dedicated group of non-professional actors decided to suit and, just like Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney, put on a show. Thus, the history of the Rochester Civic Theatre (RCT) started with the 1st meeting to form the Theatre on July 23, 1951. The performers, known as the Log Cabin Players because of their use of the Izaak Walton League Cabin as their venue, each chipped in ten dollars of their own money to produce their 1st play. It was Moss Hart's Light Up The Sky and ran for one week-end in September.
