Richmond Triangle Players has undertaken what may be a first in Richmond in celebration of their 25th anniversary. The local theatre group, which opened in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood in 1993, recently painted a rainbow crosswalk at W. Marshall Street and Altamont Avenue, a nod to their roots in Richmond’s LGBTQ community.

The project, which was completed through a partnership and approval process with the Richmond Department of Public Works, may be the first “street mural” of its kind in Richmond. Across the nation, other similar designs have been painted, with a large concentration of them in Atlanta.

Richmond Triangle Players are also celebrating their purchase of the building that has housed their many performances over the years.

On Saturday, July 21st, the theatre will celebrate these milestones with food, fun, feathers, and a sure-to-be-memorable performance by America’s Got Talent favorite, Randy Roberts.

The event, entitled “Fuss and Feathers in Scott’s Addition,” will take place Saturday evening, July 21st, at 7:30 PM at the Robert B. Moss Theater located at 1300 Altamont Avenue.
