We have been attending Riverfront Playhouse for 20+ years and I regret whenever we miss one single play. The talent in Redding and environs is truly amazing; this is not the big city, but the drama, comedy, and musical talent in "Superior California" is BIG! What fun to watch neighbors and friends display on the stage their unique abilities and... More

This little theater has great productions in a small theater setting. There is seating on two sides with the stage occupying lots of the area in the room. You get a close up view of the performers from where you have seats. My only negative is that there is no place to set a drink or other items at your... More

A nice spot to spend an evening. For a community the size of Redding the talent is often surprisingly good. They are normally best at light comedy. For the past few years they have been trying to move out of their present cubby-hole location into a larger one. Unfortunately. funding has been a problem.

I so enjoy taking in the performances at Riverfront and strongly urge you to see what great talent we have in the north state. For such a small venue, the stage is always a work of art, and the actors are just as good as you will find in the Sacramento area.

A small venue for plays. There has been tremendous talent in some of the plays. Check out the website to see if a play is currently showing. If you're sure you want to see the play, it is best to purchase tickets ahead of time to be sure to get a seat. Snacks and drinks available at the break (as... More

I went Riverfront Playhouse for the first time last week. I was amazed at how nice this little theater is! Great and kind volunteer management and staff. They told me that they do seven plays a year!!! They have been devoted to bringing quality entertainment to Redding for a long time! I can't wait for their next production!
