Riverside Players provides a very unique and entertaining outdoor theater experience to participants and audiences. A combination of municipal sponsorship, community involvement and scenic environment sets the Riverside Players apart from any other community theater in Wisconsin. Riverside Players “Theatre in the Park” began back in 1955.

Productions include a five-night run of a play in late June and a nine-night run of a musical in late July or early August. Sunday Shows are at 7:00PM, all other shows are at 8:00PM. Tickets will be available beginning in January.

2016 Shows
logoShow Dates: June 22 – 26, 2016 The Story: “Ten guilty strangers are trapped on an island. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. Eight house guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead – poisoned. One down and nine to go!
July 27 – 31 and August 3 – 7, 2016
The Story: A musical highlight show with songs from some of your favorite past Riverside productions such as; Annie, Wizard of Oz, High school Musical, King and I, Guys and Dolls, and many more!
