Rockville Musical Theatre (RMT), a volunteer organization, is dedicated to the presentation of high quality musical theatre designed to entertain and enrich the community while showcasing local talent.
In the early 1970’s, Rockville Little Theatre (RLT) performed musicals as well as plays. Eventually a decision was made by RLT to focus solely on plays. Following that decision, a group from RLT’s production of Guys and Dolls began to explore creating a theater company that produced only musicals. In June 1974, Rockville Musical Theatre (RMT) was formed and produced its first show.
RMT has come a long way since that first production which featured borrowed, salvaged, and rented sets and costumes. Today, Rockville Musical Theatre produces three musicals each year: one typically performed in the spring at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn at Arts on the Green; the remaining two shows are produced in the summer and fall at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre.
