  • RCT is  pleased to announce our 2020 show season. The selection of shows for 2020 season is tentative and subject to change.


    In September we will perform a show which we are not at liberty to announce until the middle of May – location to be determined.
    And in December we will perform “ELF’ – location to be determined.

    Please put a place holder on your calendars for these 2020 events. 




    Due to Governor Wolf’s recommendations, we have decided to cancel the “Cell Block Tango” fitness class. Feel free to check back for more information about possible virtual class by Angela.


    Angela DeAngelo-Erkert, RCT’s resident choreographer and avid dancer, has been asked, for a few years, to run a fitness class. Well, as you may know, Angela loves feminine choreography, so she’s decided it’s time for:


    Angela’s next class is a dance routine from “Chicago”.

    “He had it comin, he had it comin’!”
    Angela’s second theatre inspired fitness class will feature original, and classic, choreography to Chicago’s well known song, “THE CELL BLOCK TANGO!!!” This class’s choreography will be athletic, sharp, sassy and jazzy! Plus, there will be props! 
    The class will be Saturday night, March 28th, at 6:30 pm.
    The class is recommended for those above the age of 14. Hope to see you there!

    Each fitness class will cost $25.  Feel free to pay cash or check, made payable to Reading Civic Theatre and bring payment with you to the class.

    Please rsvp, with Angela, to reserve your spot in the class! 610-451-9523 or

    *if you, or your child, is between the ages of 14-18, and interested in this class, please contact Angela directly. Thank you!
