July 30 – August 2, 8:00PM
Riverside Park, Outdoor Band Shell
No tickets needed, FREE – donations appreciated

This high energy 90 minute show features hits from radio, stage and screen and is sure to have the entire audience singing in their seats. To ensure the health and safety of all those who attend, the show will be held on the band shell and audience members will be able to sit outside in the green space on blankets, lawn chairs, or park benches. This way audiences will be able to maintain proper social distancing between groups while getting to enjoy summer theater. This show will be free for all in attendance but there will be the opportunity at the show for those who wish to donate to do so to help support Riverside Players.


Riverside Players History of Shows

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.
