Education


Today was simply exceptional! It was one of the most motivational and inspiring experiences both myself and my students have ever encountered.
-Teacher, Blacktown Boys High School, after attending Riverside’s Education Program in 2014.

Education is at the heart of our program at Riverside through the productions we create in house and the whole body of work we offer to students and teachers.

At Riverside we believe the beauty of live theatre is that it allows us to discover our place in society. Why? Because all the world’s a stage.
