We have really enjoyed the class presentations done by really talented local players over many years. We look forward to the new theater and the continued great playes. This is now a little theater but lots of fun and personal ! Do you and your family and friends a favor and do a play and you will be hooked on local theater !

We have been attending Riverfront Playhouse for 20+ years and I regret whenever we miss one single play. The talent in Redding and environs is truly amazing; this is not the big city, but the drama, comedy, and musical talent in "Superior California" is BIG! What fun to watch neighbors and friends display on the stage their unique abilities and giftedness! Opening and closing nights offer refreshments of appetizers, coffee, sodas, and wine at a slightly higher ticket fee, but it is well worth it. I have a hard time deciding which night to attend. Opening night fills out the audience which encourages the actors, but closing nights we run into friends! Either way this is a great habit to form for lovers of local live theatre. Next up, "Barefoot in The Park!"

This little theater has great productions in a small theater setting. There is seating on two sides with the stage occupying lots of the area in the room. You get a close up view of the performers from where you have seats. My only negative is that there is no place to set a drink or other items at your seat. There also is not much leg room to allow those who enter and exit during the show to pass by. Worth a Friday or Saturday evening.

Check the schedule. Local players with much professional talent and a wide varuety of plays.
Open weekends. An inexpensuve way to spend an eveing.
