“Theatre in the Park”
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.
Auditions are held in March or April of each year with dates, times and locations announced in arts organization literature and through the local media. Several paid staff positions are available including directors (artistic, musical, vocal, technical), choreographer, orchestra members, and costumers. Volunteer positions are also available.
