Riverfront Playhouse’s Board of Directors is excited to announce that on December 2, the loan documents with US Bank for the purchase of our future home at 1950 California Street in downtown Redding were finalized.
Plans continue to be developed for our new theatre and will be submitted to the City of Redding by the end of this month. We will then begin working on our construction loan through US Bank as we transform the 11,500 square-foot building into a performing arts venue.
Our fundraising efforts, which include naming opportunities for the new theatre, a brick campaign for the patio area and selling seats with donor name plates are more important now than ever as we move closer to seeing our long-awaited dream of a new theatre come to fruition.
Our newly expanded board of directors just completed a very productive team-building workshop which was facilitated by John Truitt of Viva Downtown.
This is a very exciting time in the history of Riverfront Playhouse as we move to bring community theatre downtown and hopefully reach a much bigger audience through greater visibility, and a much more functional venue.
We thank the community for their on-going support. With continued effort, we will see our first show in the new theatre in the fall of 2017.
