Our Fall 2017 Production - Anne of Green Gables

We look forward to welcoming you back to Russell in November with the quintessentially Canadian story of a spirited, red-headed orphan who bursts into a sleepy island town, changing the hearts, minds, and lives of everyone she meets.

Founded in 1989, the Russell Association for the Performing Arts (RAPA) is a local, not-for-profit amateur theatre company. While we are best known for the two major productions we present each year, we also provide bursaries for local students pursuing post-secondary education in the arts, provide sound and lighting equipment for other local charities, and otherwise give back to this wonderful community we call home
