This year at the River Campus brings big names to the stage in productions you won’t want to miss. Plus, in addition to season ticket packages based on the series, you can also have the option to get packages based on area of interest. So for information on all the comedies, musicals, classics and holiday favorites coming your way, we spoke with the director of the River Campus, Rhonda Weller-Stilson.

What’s more adorable than the Chihuahua from Legally Blonde? A cast of young performers taking over the roles, of course.

Legally Blonde, Jr., is a musical that retains the original’s sense of humor and self-empowerment themes, but condensed and re-envisioned for younger performers. We asked the director, Michelle Contrino, everything you need to know about what’s sure to be an entertaining production.

Big screen classics are taking the stage at the River Campus this summer.

"The 39 Steps" was adapted from the novel and the Hitchcock film, but you can see it at the River Campus as part of this year’s Summer Arts Festival. Unfamiliar with this one? We’ll let director Kenn Stilson give you all details on this serious spy story played mainly for laughs.
