Hello and welcome to the 2019-2020 Season for the Riverdale Ridge Theatre Company!
After a successful inaugural year of productions where we were focused on building our foundations, we are excited to move into our second season.
The shows I have selected for this year are a beautiful mix of character and heart. Both of the mainstage productions, Almost, Maine and Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, include large ensembles with many opportunities for young actors to dig into character work. I am excited to see the potential I know these students have come to fruition in roles that ask them to dig deep and explore what it means to be human.
In addition to the mainstage productions, we will also be working to provide students with opportunities to make their own work through the Student Devised program.
Thank you for supporting the performing arts at Riverdale Ridge High School and please enjoy our season!
