Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who are the RPI Players?
A: The RPI Players is the only on-campus theater group. Membership is open to any and all students and members of the RPI Community who have an interest in theater. If you have performed, worked backstage, or have never even seen the inside of a theater before, you are welcome at the RPI Players.
Q: What is an "RPI Player"?
A: Strictly speaking, a Player is someone who has worked on two shows at the RPI Playhouse, and has been initiated into the RPI Players. An Apprentice to the RPI Players is one who has worked on a single show. This work can be in any capacity. If you haven't been initiated as a Player yet, don't worry. The only thing you are excluded from is voting at Players Meetings. All those with an interest in theater are encouraged equally to participate in the RPI Players.
