About the artist

Formed in 1933 and suspended during World War II, RLT reformed in 1956 at the Rome YMCA. For years the group performed in several different venues, including the Gordon Theatre (now The Partridge Restaurant)and the Maple Street Theater. In 1981 RLT bought the DeSoto Theatre building and the volunteer group converted it to a theater for live plays. In 2008 RLT transferred ownership of the DeSoto building to the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation and performs as the resident theatre company.
