Dear RCTC family and friends,


We hope that all of you and your family have remained happy and healthy during these uncertain times. We have missed you all and had hoped that we would have been able to be back together this spring. However, with the ever-changing uncertainty of Covid 19 we have not had the opportunity to plan any productions due to current restrictions. We want to assure everyone that RCTC is still here and we are all working on plans for some virtual workshop opportunities this spring and a full musical production in the fall. We are closely following CDC and state guidelines and are working with the Sacramento City School District as well since we use their facility at Hiram Johnson High School. 

We hope you can make plans to join us in the fall as we hope to return to a full workshop production of White Christmas (pending rights approval). Please stay in touch on our Facebook and Instagram pages as we will update you all on the upcoming virtual workshop opportunities and the ability to produce a fall production. Please see below for an exciting opportunity we are able to offer next month!

About the Instructor:

Ron Cisneros was born in Sacramento and started dancing at age four. He began dancing with Barbra Briggs’ Camellia City Ballet in 1961 and Sacramento Music Circus in 1965.  In 1971 he began a long association with Disney, performing in Disney on Parade, rising through the ranks from chorus boy to dance captain, principal dancer, and dance director. In 1981, Mr. Cisneros began eight seasons as the choreographer for Sacramento’s Music Circus. In 1985, he started choreographing for community theatres throughout the Sacramento area, receiving his first Elly Award in 1987 and 12 more since then.  Ron has choreographed and/or directed over 100 musicals for professional, community, and educational theatres, and has worked with such stars as Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley, Donald O’Connor, Mickey Rooney, and Barbra Streisand. Mr. Cisneros was the owner and director of the Cisneros Studios of Dance until it closed in 2018. A veteran of Broadway musicals, Hollywood films, Disney productions, and Sacramento professional and community theatre, he was the very first recipient of SARTA's Lifetime Achievement Elly Award (2011). Ron was the resident choreographer for Galena Street East, a retired dance instructor at Natomas Charter School, Performing and Fine Arts Academy, and a guest lecturer at the University of California, Davis. Last, he is the co-founder and artistic director of the River City Theatre Company since its start in 1990.
