The Sundowners

The Sundowners are the youth section of the RDG. Their productions are not as frequent as the main RDG production schedule, performing once or twice per year on average since their inception.

The sundowners started in 1977, and a significant number of our current adult members were once Sundowners. Sundowners productions are coordinated by Louise Dangel who has been in charge since 1999.

As with the main list of productions, we are currently working to enter all the available information we have from the Sundowers performances from 1977 to the present day.
