Please support your community theater
Riverfront Playhouse
What a year it has been! Riverfront Playhouse officially opened its doors and invited YOU, the Riverfront Family, to enjoy the first public performances this year. A Night of Music presented in partnership with Vintage showcased three local bands. "Clue" was the first play performed for a live audience in the new theatre. It's a Wonderful Life starts on December 3. Unfortunately, Dracula had to be postponed until next year due to illness in the cast. Riverfront was busy even when the doors weren't open to the public. During the required closure of live theatre, two productions were available via streaming - 'Tis the Season December of 2020 and Peter Pan in May of 2021.
Riverfront is proud to be part of the Redding Cultural District, reflecting our commitment to performing arts and community involvement. This would not have happened without incredible community support and a team of volunteers that dedicated hours and hours of their time to the task of creating a theatre and performing arts space from what used to be a gym and health club.
This has been an unprecedented time for our community, and theatre has certainly been hit especially hard. The sudden impact due to the required closure of theatres was difficult. Riverfront looks forward to seeing you at the theatre now that permission has been granted to open the doors once again for live theatre. Your continued support is important and very much appreciated.

Riverfront Playhouse was created in 1981 by a few local theatre lovers with the vision of providing a community theatre for the Redding area. The first play at Riverfront Playhouse opened on July 10, 1981 at 1620 East Cypress Avenue. The following year we became a 501-c3 non-profit corporation. We are the region’s longest continually operating, all volunteer, community theatre.
