Hi M & M - I just saw "Scrooge" last night and a few months ago, "Oliver!"...both shows were magical! I even went back the next night to see "Oliver!" again, and would go again today to see "Scrooge" again, if it was possible! The whole cast was just superb!! I'll be back for many shows to come, and am even thinking of... auditioning in the future. Bravo!

Cheers, Joe La Banco

Part of a thank you note given to every cast member  from an audience member in 2011…I remember attending the Les Miserables when it came to Chicago and the famous barricade. I also watched two concert versions. These were professionally produced I was thrilled to hear Ross Music Theatre were to present Les Miserables and couldn't wait to see the show. On July 24th I was privileged to sit in Reinhart Auditorium and witness a marvelous presentation of this great and epic musical….infect I was in awe with tears and goose bumps throughout the show. I knew I had to returnto appreciate more fully all the hard work and discipline that went into taking the pages of the script and having it come to life on stage...

A Little About Ross Music Productions


For 55 years RSMT has not only been known for wonderful voices, giant orchestras, Bigger than life sets but also for their cutting edge technical elements of their shows. They were experimenting with cordless mics back in 1974, along with trying projections from slides, to film, and now video rear and front projection.  Take time to explore our videos and photos at


Here is a sample of audience comments

I laughed, I Cried, I believed every performance.  For only 10.00 I will be back to see this one again.

What happens when you take a really great bunch of very talented teenagers and put them on stage and then get a great group of adults to donate time, talent, effort, expertise, and equipment.  You get PHANTOM at MHS.  If you have not seen it don't be put off because says high school production.   This is much much more then that.  You will not be disappointed.



Saw Phantom last night at Merrillville High School....incredible performances! If you have time, go see its closing show today...check Mike Reinhart's FB!


This show is a MUST SEE! The exceptional orchestra, sets, costumes and directing are only exceeded by the incredible talent on that stage. If you close your eyes you would swear it's the national tourThese kids are OUTSTANDING!! It lef...t me speechless which is something that rarely happens. Congrats to the entire cast, crew and production team. Anyone reading this MUST see this show tomorrow

NO SEAT SHOULD BE EMPTY AT THIS SHOW! IT IS A M A Z I N G ! After 38 years of teaching/directing/watching theatre -- in NYC, Chicago, and all around NWI, "RAGTIME" is one of the finest performances I have ever seen! [I do not say that lightly - EVER.] DO NOT miss this show next weekend.



 Superb is not adequate to  describe the sense of beauty, excitement, and exhilaration we experienced at "Beauty and the Beast" on Saturday night. the opening scene in the village was breathtakingly beautiful. The costumes overwhelmed us. The colors and styles of all the beautiful dresses and the backdrop were awesome. Then we went to the castle and I was blown away by the magnificence of the set. I applauded and finally got several other people to clap with me and realize the monumental achievement in set design they were looking at.

All the music, choreography, lighting, the superb singing and especially the technical work were outstanding. The casting was superb and the specialty costumes were magnificent. Once again Ross has set a new standard for community theater in our area. This show was as good as any I've seen in New York and better than many I've seen in Chicago for much more money. Congratulations on creating a wonderful evening of superb theater.
