Ric and Rozene Supple founded the non profit Palm Springs Cultural Center in 2007. They are long-time residents of the Coachella Valley, having moved here full-time in the early 1970s. They live in Smoketree Ranch, where Rozene’s parents were among the owners.

The Supples owned and operated R&R Radio Corporation, which was comprised of two FM stations and three AM stations, for almost fifty years. In 1999, they bought and refurbished the historic Camelot Theatres building, and turned it into a three-screen complex with a full bar and restaurant. In 2017, they gifted the building to the Palm Springs Cultural Center.

The Supples’ list of charitable donations over the years is long and varied. Their gift to Desert Regional Hospital made possible the G.A. Richards Trauma Center (in honor of Rozene’s late father) and Rozene’s bequest to the Palm Springs Unified School for the new Richards Center for the Arts (also named for Rozene’s father) are just two examples. The Supples were also among the founders of the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Simply put, the Palm Springs Cultural Center reflects the Supples’ legacy and lifelong dedication to culture and the arts, broadly defined.

The second production for this season, running March 13 through 22, is The Velocity of Autumn by Eric Coble. Directed by Yates, The Velocity of Autumn swirls around Alexandra, an 80-year-old artist in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. In Alexandra’s corner are her wit, her volcanic passion, and the fact that she’s barricaded herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the block. But her children have their own…
