  • Suzzane Ryan Tells Our Story

    One of the most recognizable faces at Rabbit Run Theater has never graced the stage.  Box Office Manager Suzzane Ryan has been greating patrons with her signature smile for the past fourteen seasons.  "When I first started, I didn't think I'd ever remember anyone's name.  Now I can tell you exactly where they prefer to sit!"

    "It's amazing how close you get to people, even though the Box Office is only open seasonally," she explains.  "It's such a kind and generous environment and creativity is the aura of the place."  Suzzane feels that the best is yet to come.  "The more you love something, the better it gets."

  • Clay Fellows Tells Our Story

    When Clay Fellows began to explore options for his Eagle Scout project, he felt very strongly that it should support Rabbit Run.  "I had been to theater camps, worked backstage and my sister had been in several shows.  Somehow I was always tied back to it."  Throughout the 2013 theater season, he raised funds and worked with local businesses to create a permanent picnic pavilion on the grounds of Rabbit Run Theater.

    Clay's hard work inspired support and collaboration throughout the community.  He's pleased to see how his project has enhanced something he loves.  "There are many places to go for entertainment.  There's only one Rabbit Run."

  • The Duffy-Heidrich Family Tells Our Story

    At the age of 8, Paige Heidrich attended RRCAA’s Summer Theater Camp for the first time. She felt right at home. Her parents, John Heidrich and Cecilia Duffy, recognized that “it was an immediate match for her as she fell in love with performing.” They began to seek out other opportunities for Paige. Once again they turned to RRCAA.
    Now 16 Paige’s abilities have expanded and matured through RRCAA’s classes in dance, voice and drama as well as summer camps and acting in productions at Rabbit Run Theater. “I find myself growing each time I perform,” she explains.
    John and Cecilia value RRCAA from a number of perspectives, including their work at Geneva Chiropractic Clinic. “As a business owner, I see the tremendous service that Rabbit Run provides for the surrounding community, so I support RRCAA financially” John explains. Cecilia adds, “As a mother, I see that Rabbit Run is family friendly. Paige has had first-class training that will help her in any future endeavor.” Reflecting on her experiences at RRCAA, Paige agrees. “They truly care about helping me succeed.”

  • Maria Lister Tells Our Story

    Sometimes great joy is found in the midst of great loss.  Adjusting to the cancer diagnosis that ultimately took his life, Kevin Lister told his wife, Maria, “I think God is telling me you need to get back into theater.”  After ten years away from the stage, Maria began to act and direct for Rabbit Run Theater.  “We were created to be creative and I believe the performing arts need to be cultivated and grown.” 

    Maria carries this mentality into all of her artistic pursuits, particularly those involving young people.  “I encourage kids to support each other as they work toward the same goal” she explains.  “I love being a part of a greater vision.”
