Construction Begins On New Home For Riverfront Playhouse

Construction has finally begun on the new home of the Riverfront Playhouse in Redding. The 11,500 square foot building is at 1950 California Street, a former sports medicine facility. Renovations include the removal of an indoor swimming pool. The theater will seat 152 audience members, and will include a set construction shop, a well-appointed green room, an art gallery, an events room with a concessions stand, and a small black box theater for experimental productions. Naming opportunities, personalized bricks and seat nameplates are available for purchase as the theater company pushes hard for continued fundraising. A ground breaking ceremony will take place in the next few weeks. For it’s first 39 years the theater has occupied a incongruous space in an industrial style steel building off East Cypress Avenue.
