Primary Education


Welcome back to the magic of Riverside in 2021. It’s now more important than ever to connect with one another, to appreciate human stories and to explore our creativity and imaginations. What better way to do this than with live theatre? Our 2021 Education program presents plays that are curriculum relevant from company’s that you know and love. We are accessible and encouraging you to choose your own adventure for your students to experience IN PERSON the magic of live performance in our COVID SAFE venue. If there is one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s never take LIVE for granted. So come join us and step back into the magical world of Riverside Theatres.
