In late June, RiverCenter for the Performing Arts announced they'd be returning to the stage after COVID-19 forced presenting theaters across the nation to shut their doors to protect the health and safety of performing artists and visitors. Though RiverCenter successfully hosted several local performances and events last Spring, their upcoming season is set as a full return to programming featuring national tours and top performers from across the country.
Just this week, new stars and performances have been added to their previously announced season of events. Recently added performances include: Dionne Warwick as the season opener, a Christmas concert by Martina McBride, and new educational productions of Macbeth and The Great Gatsby from Aquila Theatre.
Here's an updated look at everything coming (so far) to RiverCenter for the Performing Arts this season. Stay tuned for more updates here and on our social media channels!
