Hello to all of our members, staff and friends,
It is my sincere hope that this newsletter finds you healthy and well during this difficult public health challenge. The Board of Directors has been diligent in setting policy and protocol to protect those who enter the theatre. We're still putting final touches on the inside of the building, making sure it's perfect for when we are finally able to have gatherings.
We will be participating in Giving Tuesday again this year. As you may imagine, this year your generosity is more crucial than ever. Live theatre is last on the COVID-19 Roadmap to Recovery list, and there is no way of knowing when that will be.
I am pleased to announce that we will be presenting a Christmas show this year. ’Tis the Season, a variety show, will highlight songs and dance numbers that reflect the Christmas spirit we all enjoy during the holiday season. The show features all local talent, from the emcee to vocalists, dancers, stage production staff, producer and director. And the great news is that you will be able to watch it at home. Please go to our website or click the link below to buy your ticket. Grab some popcorn, your favorite beverage and blanket while you settle in on the couch and enjoy the show.
The Riverfront board of directors wish to thank Paul and Carol Robeson for all of the hard work they have contributed to Riverfront Playhouse. They were there for the establishment and formation of the theatre back in 1981. Paul served as Theatre Manager and mentor to the all volunteer staff. Carol has served on the board for all those years until her recent resignation prior to their moving to Texas to be near family. We wish them well and want them to take with them our fondest wishes and gratitude for all they have done.
If you haven't had an opportunity to check out the Shasta Historical Society’s event The History of Riverfront Playhouse, you can find it on our Facebook page and on our website. You will enjoy hearing about our humble beginnings and the journey to moving downtown.
We'd like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas
I'll see you at the 'Tis the Season intermission,
