Riverside Theatre, led by Producing Artistic Director/CEO Allen D. Cornell and Managing Director/COO Jon R. Moses, is delighted to announce its 46th Anniversary Season for 2019-2020. Building on the success and acclaim the theatre has attained nationwide over the last few years, Riverside is proud to present a magnificent season of music, comedy, and drama.
“Each season we strive to produce shows that will excite our audiences,” says Mr. Cornell. “The thought process behind show selections is centered on the goal of putting our own stamp on popular works that we believe our audience needs to see. With those thoughts in mind, we hope our patrons will be as excited as we are to see the shows that will comprise the 2019-2020 season.
“The season is spread across many drawing boards as we continue to plan these productions, but we invite theatregoers to be witness to the magic that happens when what begins with a pencil and inspired imaginings becomes full blown life on stage!”
The season begins in October with a musical journey through the 60’s with Beehive followed in January by the tap-happy, tuneful Thoroughly Modern Millie. A tribute to American playwright Neil Simon follows with his Pulitzer Prize-winning play Lost in Yonkers in February. Two very popular musical hits - the madcap La Cage aux Folles and the romantic thriller The Body Guard - conclude the season on the Stark Stage while two comedic plays fill the Waxlax Stage season - the uproarious The 39 Steps in January and very funny Bakersfield Mist in March.
Season ticket packages areavailable for 3, 4, 5 or more productions on the Stark and Waxlax Stages and single tickets are now on sale for all shows. For more information on prices and subscription options, call the Box Office at 772-231-6990 or online at www.riversidetheatre.com.
