August: Osage County is the 10th show Ryan has had the pleasure of directing for the White Rock Players’ Club and as life is taking him in a new direction next year it may be his last show in this fabulous theatre. He is humbled by the opportunities and support the WRPC have shown him over the last 6 years and is grateful for the many life long friendships he has made. He wants you to know that his family is nothing like the Westons!
