Summerset Theatre is a not-for-profit community theatre founded in 1968. Performances take place each summer in the Frank W. Bridges Theatre.
Riverland Theatre produces four main stage productions each academic year (including at least two musicals) that encompass a wide variety of eras and styles. Students are encouraged to get involved in all areas of theatre production including (but not limited to) acting, design, stage managing, set construction, and backstage crew.
Travel-study courses such as Big Arts in the Big Apple and London Dash give students the opportunity to experience professional theatre in major cities around the globe. Each year, Riverland students attend and compete at the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Region 5 Festival. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Summerset Theatre, which has performed on the Riverland campus since 1968. Summerset mounts several main stage productions between June and August and engages students as actors, crew, and in paid staff positions.
