Riverfront Playhouse is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000 donation from Sierra Pacific Foundation. The funds will be used for the remodel of Riverfront’s new home at 1950 California Street in Downtown Redding.

Riverfront’s new facility will have dedicated areas for rehearsals and set building that will eliminate many weeks of downtime between productions. It will provide seating for 151 patrons and will be available to rent for seminars, meetings, receptions, private events, movies, music, and a variety of performing arts. It will also include a bar, a reception area, storage for costumes and props, and dressing rooms.

“The Riverfront Playhouse Board of Directors and Capital Campaign committee are extremely grateful for the generous and thoughtful contribution to the new theatre. This gets us another step closer to our goal after years of hard work and continuous effort,” says board president, Darryll Alvey.

The Sierra Pacific Foundation was established in 1979 by A.A. “Red” Emmerson’s father, R.H. “Curly” Emmerson. “The Foundation is pleased to be part of such a great project that benefits Redding, Shasta County and Northern California. We applaud the efforts of all the people who have worked so hard to make the Riverfront Playhouse a reality,” says Mark Lathrop, Sierra Pacific Foundations community relations manager.

Riverfront Playhouse will continue to produce and perform plays at the theatre, located at 1620 E. Cypress Avenue in Redding, until the new theatre is complete. For more information, visit www.riverfrontplayhouse.net
