About the Ticket Supplier: Role Players Ensemble

The Role Players' Ensemble Theatre was founded in 1983 by a group of Danville residents who wished to establish quality community theatre in the San Ramon Valley. In addition to providing a venue where local actors, directors and technicians could ply their craft, the group hoped to attract an audience throughout the Tri-Valley and Contra Costa County and expand their theatrical alternatives. The company was formed as a California non-profit organization. Although the mission has evolved over time, the fundamental aim has always been to provide provocative, high quality theatre productions that both entertain and educate.
