Rip Taggart

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear friend, Rip Taggart who left us last night surrounded by his loving wife, Debbie and their children. Rip joined the NBCT family in 2010 and wowed us with his performances in 1776 and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He was diagnosed with cancer a week before his next performance as King Arthur in Monty Python’s Spamalot was set to open this past May. Although he did not perform on stage, director Keith Boyd was able to capture his rehearsal performance on video and he was there to cheer for the cast on opening night.

Rip’s stage performances were memorable but it was his support and contributions behind the scenes that left a lasting impression to those lives he touched. He served as a mentor to many of the volunteers, especially our young actors. He lent his technical skills to create and enhance the image of not only NBCT but to the community as a whole. His passion and enthusiasm for the arts was infectious and he worked tirelessly to assist anywhere he could.

Rip you were an invaluable member to NBCT and you will be greatly missed.

In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and a modern day life in one truly powerful story.
