Neighbors and friends are welcome to stop by – or grab a
paintbrush and join the effort – between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“We’re honored – and grateful – that Mayor-Elect Walsh and his friends are giving us this help and support,” said Marietta Phinney, Riverside’s founding director. “Our audiences will be thrilled to see the building spruced up. And we’re thrilled that our new mayor understands how the arts can enrich a community.”
Riverside Theatre Works, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, strives to reach a diverse community through affordable ticket prices, scholarships and outreach programs, all while nurturing the talents of local artists. Many children from Milton take part in the theater's annual April Vacation Week youth musical, as well as other mainstage shows.
Located in the historic French’s Opera House in Logan Square – a classic proscenium theater built in 1897 -- Riverside offers theater classes and musical training for children and adults, along with a roster of quality live performances. Upcoming productions include the Boston Unscripted Musical Project (BUMP) on January 25, Sideways Stories from Wayside School from February 27-March 2, Peter Pan Jr. during April vacation week, and Cabaret in May.
