Hello to all of the dedicated supporters of Royal City Musical Theatre,
RCMT has been closely following the mandates of our provincial health authority. Currently, BC’s Public Health Officer, has banned any gatherings over 250 people.
It is with deepest regret and sadness that RCMT’s Board of Directors informs you that the 2020 production of Crazy for You, will not be running as scheduled.
It is our sincerest hope that we will be able to mount the production at a later date but in light of the ever-changing global environment, we are unable to confirm new dates until such time that the health concerns within the community have stabilized.
Our entire team of production personnel, cast, orchestra and our long-time partner have been working hard for months to bring this amazing production to the stage. Due to the amazing community support, Royal City Musical Theatre has proudly brought 30 musical theatre productions to the stage of the Massey Theatre. Together we look forward to continuing this legacy.
RCMT will be in touch with all our ticket purchasers in the upcoming weeks. At this point in time, we kindly ask that you do not call the Massey Theatre box office or visit their location. This will allow us to handle the complexities of the situation as smoothly as possible. We thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.
As a supporter of RCMT, we ask that you consider the following:
- As a non profit organization, we are dependent on our ticket sales for our existence. A great percentage of our production costs have already been incurred. In light of this, and the unexpected cancellation of our show, we ask that you consider donating the cost of your purchased tickets back to the organization. An income tax receipt will be provided for these donations.
- Alternatively, existing tickets can be redeemed at face value for any upcoming RCMT production, once those are announced.
For any ticket inquiries, please contact: donations@
We would like to encourage all of our dedicated supporters to continue to follow the guidelines of our public health officials and take all necessary precautions during this time. Please be sure to follow us on our website and social media to be the first to know when our new dates are announced!
We will be in further contact with information about future plans for the show and handling existing tickets.
Until then, we thank you for your patience and for your support.
A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner’s daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
