Since 1982, River City Players has become a cornerstone of the cultural community in Lexington, Missouri.

Lexington is located approximately 35 miles east of Kansas City and is nestled on the southern bank of the mighty Missouri River at the crossroads of US Highway 24 and Missouri Highway 13.

RCP is a community theater ensemble and operates as a not-for-profit group. RCP traditionally presents three shows a year: a Spring Comedy, a Fall Drama or Mystery and a free Children's Christmas Play.


The River City Players presented the Children's Christmas production of "A GIFT FOR SANTA" on Saturday, December 14, 2019.  The play is an original script written and directed by Sharon Propst. 

Thanks to the Trails Regional Library of Lexington for hosting the show, and for all the parents who helped get the show off the ground -and put it away afterwards! RCP's next Adult show is our Spring Show in April 2020. Happy Holidays!

RCP's 35th season has been dedicated to long time RCP member Melanie Corporon, who passed away in October 2017. Both Melanie, her husband Tom and son Nick have appeared in RCP productions in years past and are part of our RCP family. Melanie was a talented actress, director and set designer. RCP will remember Melanie and honor her service to our group during our 35th Season.


Special thank you to RCP President Sharon Propst, who directed the 2016 Children's Christmas show, and has directed and written the Christmas Show for the past 25 years. Lexington Mayor Jerry Brown presented Sharon with an official Proclamation from the City of Lexington commemorating the event.
