Theater

Pure joy emanates from our stage all year long. Just walk into The Riverdale Y’s cozy theater and feel the energy! Our three resident theater companies provide an exhilarating, creative environment where children, teens, and adults feel free to express themselves artistically. Our award-winning Riverdale Rising Stars and Jr. Rising Stars offer teens and kids the opportunity to be part of a professional theatrical company as they grow their self-esteem and confidence, develop camaraderie through ensemble-building, and create lifelong friendships. For adults 18 and older, the Riverdale Repertory offers a community theater program. A gifted faculty of working artists, directors, and technical directors guide each creative journey, cultivating members’ individual talents. Participation is by audition only.
