Social Misson:  Resident Theatre Company

AT FIG, WE BELIEVE in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. For our 2017 Social Mission Partner, we have chosen the Resident Theatre Company, a professional company bringing New York Theatre to Chester County and contributing immensely to our thriving, local community.

In 2011 Kristin McLaughlin fell in love twice. Once with her now husband, and then with the town where he lived, West Chester. Kristin had been living in New York City for over 20 years working in professional theatre as an actor and director. Taken by West Chester’s charm, Kristin was also impressed by the restaurants, live music, and art galleries. But something was missing.

She kept hearing the same story: everyone loved seeing shows in NYC, but with the drive, gas, tolls, parking, tickets, and Times Square madness, they rarely went. So, Kristin launched the Resident Theatre Company in 2015. “I thought if I could bring my world here, people would be happy to go to the theatre.”

Since then, RTC has produced over 20 performances leading up to their first fully produced musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot, which will run at the new Knauer Performing Arts Center March 31—April 16, 2017. To purchase your Spamalot tickets, visit
