Historical Information: Brick City Players

Brick City Players was a student drama club at RIT, active in the 1970s. Presentations performed by the Players include a production of Dracula (1972?), Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap (1974) and Fashion Del Arte (1977). Fashion Del Arte was billed as "an evening of theater in fashion - models arranged in mannequin-like mannerisms come to life andmove in dance-like form to display the fashions of today and yesterday."

Previously, in 1965, Drama Guild was formed at RIT, and was active until 1969. It is unclear if Brick City Players replaced the Drama Guild, or when the Players itself disbanded.
