THEATER | RCP 90th Anniversary 

The Rochester Community Players first began to roar in the Roaring 20's — on January 19, 1925, to be exact, when the group presented the farce "Wedding Bells" at the German House. (It received rather good reviews, too; one praised the cast's "unmanicured high spirits.") Ninety years and 647 plays, musicals, and other productions later, RCP returns to the German House to celebrate nine decades. The party includes hors d'oeuvres, music provided by DJ Wild Poet, and the showing of the movie "Fly Low Jack and the Game," made in 1927 by RCP performers and recently shown in a restored version at the High Falls Film Festival. RCP also hopes attendees turn up for the party in their best 1925-inspired clothes.

Rochester Community Players 90th Anniversary Celebration is Monday, January 19, at the German House Auditorium, 315 Gregory Street. 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. $10-$20.
