Faces of Shasta County CD

Faces 2Shasta County History comes to life! In October of last year the Riverfront Playhouse partnered with the Shasta Historical Society in a presentation at the Cascade Theatre called ” Faces Of Shasta County”. This wonderful show brought to life many wonderful characters of Shasta County history using actors from Riverfront Playhouse as well as authentic photo’s..

Major Pierson Reading, Chauncey Bush, Black Bart, Mae Helene Bacon Boggs, and Judge Richard Eaton were just some of the characters brought to life. This presentation is now available on DVD for 20.00 at the “Enjoy Store” and would be a wonderful way to learn the history of our area. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Capital Campaign to open Riverfront’s new theatre in downtown Redding. Get yours today!!!!
