Riverside Theatre

With close to 300 performances on three stages each year, Riverside Theatre is the area's only professional, not-for-profit theatre. It houses one of the state's only free-standing buildings dedicated to children's theatre and is one of a few theatres in Florida designated as a Cultural Institution. The theatre also has one of the largest subscribing audiences in Florida and attracts over 100,000 patrons annually.
