Riot Act, Inc. delivers exceptional theater that explores meaningful issues, expands community perspectives, and empowers local actors, directors, and playwrights.
Riot Act, Inc. prides itself on its grassroots, community-driven approach.Involving community members from all walks of life to produce quality art remains a top priority. Our artists, volunteers and most of the audience members live and work in our community.
The company always encourages anyone who would like to be involved to join productions. We hold open auditions and regularly cast actors with little or no experience to join stage veterans. We also offer opportunities for new and established directors. Our production crew and designers who work behind the scenes are some of the most important parts of our productions. It is their hard work and dedication that help make our shows such successes.
Offering easy affordable access to the theatre strengthens the entire community by creating shared experiences.Riot Act’s productions offer residents the chance not only to view quality theater and support fellow community members, but it gives many of them the chance to express themselves artistically. Whether it’s on stage as an actor, or behind the scenes building sets or running lights, theater provides a necessary outlet and encourages creativity among all those involved. Theatre provides personal development from becoming part of a new social group to being comfortable speaking publicly to building confidence to learning more about yourself. From those who have always harbored dreams of the theater to youth exploring what could become a career, opportunities like these change lives for the better.
