Owner description: Bristol Riverside Theatre (BRT) is a professional regional theatre in the historic district of Bristol Borough. The theatre, located in a renovated movie house, combines the excitement of a large stage with the intimacy of a 300-seat theater, along with outstanding lighting and sound technology. Since 1986, BRT has brought consistently acclaimed professional theater to Bucks County and maintained a long-term commitment to finding and developing new plays. Now in its 30th season, the theatre has grown to produce over 200 performances every year, including five Mainstage productions, three presented events, a summer music fest series, a play reading series, and a Christmas concert.

This is a great place to take the kids for a matinee. And a walk along the water afterwards. Small and quaint and the extra special touch from all staff members. Thumbs up!

Bristol, the town, is trying to bring back the charm that is evident beneath the crumble and litter that tarnishes many of its neighborhoods. The setting for the theatre, overlooking the Delaware River amongst some of the prettiest buildings in town, is delightful. And inside one finds a lovingly maintained, intimate venue for community theatre that deserves support. We saw Inherit the Wind, a creative effort that did not disappoint. We were impressed by the economic yet enterprising sets and several of the performances, most notably the actor who plays the part representing Williams Jennings Briant. The Clarence Darrow role, albeit weaker, was also commendable. The theatre sometimes combines shows with a dinner option. Someday we will return to sample the fare!

Got tickets at the last minute to see The Pirates of Penzance. Cute little theater that appeared to have no bad seats. Snack bar offered just enough, bathrooms were clean. Would go back to see more shows!

Almost 5 star performances, giving this slightly lower because of only ONE small bathroom - otherwise nice. Our Red Hat group used to go there!

This was such a great place to see a play! Small and intimate we just loved it. Went there for my birthday then had a late night dinner at The King George next door which was very good. Nice play to enjoy a play without having to go into the city - very scenic with the river behind it.
