RFP Presents 12th Night

The Rex Fleming Players are excited to showcase the Shakespeare classic of Twelfth Night to everyone they can!

If you’re unfamiliar with the play, in short, it’s about a woman who dresses up as a man, falls in love with the man she serves, and is pursued by the woman she is trying to win over for the man she’s in love with. Really very simple. Shakespeare weaves confusion, love, and hilarity together, and you don’t want to miss seeing it on stage.

There are two showings, April 1st and 2nd, both at 7pm. The play will be in Belin Chapel located inside the McNair building on the campus of Houston Baptist University.

Tickets are available for pre-purchase online at www.hbu.edu/rfptickets. Tickets will also be sold at the door. Admission prices for HBU students, faculty, and seniors is $5. Prices for all other guests are $10. Children 3 and under can watch this play for free!

The cast cannot wait to perform and share this comedy with everyone possible! Please come out and support Rex Fleming! We are so excited to see you there!

1st Improv Show

Come one, come all to the greatest made up show ever to appear at Houston Baptist University.

That’s right! Rex Fleming Players is putting on their first Improv show on October 30th at 8pm in Mabee Theater. The troupe will play several different improv games, and the audience will even get to participate by providing scene suggestions.

We will also be selling concessions, and everything costs a dollar. What’s better for college students?

It will be a ton of fun. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may just want to jump up on the stage with us. We’re so excited for this new phase of Rex Fleming, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Onward and Upward

With Fall fast upon us, the Rex Fleming Players are gearing up for another wonderful season. Some upcoming events include the first Play In A Day of the 2015/16 school year on September 5th. There we will announce the rest of our season. Be there!


The Rex Fleming Players at Houston Baptist University are proud to announce their Christmas production of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry. Join us for an evening of nostalgia, fun, and the ever-important reminder that life—with all its hardships, heartaches, and sacrifice—truly is wonderful! Come enjoy the spectacle of a live band, live sound effects, and the lost art of radio drama. Be reminded of the love in your life, the memories of this classic American piece, and the importance of an angel’s wings.
