Experience the buzz of Riverside at Home with Riverside Theatres Digital
Written by Darryn Capes-Davis on 23 May 2020
Riverside Theatre has been closed for the last few months and needless to say Theatre staff and the regular artists who perform at the Theatre are feeling rather anxious during these difficult times with Covid-19.
Even if the State Government lifts its current restrictions with respect to the operation of Theatres such a Riverside Theatre, there is likely to be quite a lead time before the Theatre can resurrect itself and have bookings for new live shows.
In view of the current scenario, the Parramatta Riverside Theatre Board has encouraged Mr Robert Love the Director of the Theatre to investigate the potential for one of the smaller theatres within Riverside to be converted to a Studio to produce a few Digital pilot concerts in an effort to support our local artists and provide quality entertainment to people throughout NSW who have been locked away and in some cases isolated during this Covid-19 pandemic period.
We hope to delight you in your home, until we can welcome you back again to ours.Robert Love Director, Riverside Theatres
