Iowa City, IA – Riverside Theatre, Iowa City’s resident professional theatre, is celebrating the opening of its 32nd Season with an Open House on Sunday, August 26, 2-4 p.m.

Peek behind the stage curtain before the 2012-2013 season starts with True West. Riverside Theatre will open the doors to areas of the theatre you don’t typically see when you come for a show.

Start out in the Scene Shop, where sets for all of the productions are built, and take a tour that includes the backstage area, the green room, and much more.

There will also be a rehearsal of Sam Shepard’s True West in progress during the Open House, from 2-4 p.m. Get a glimpse of a Gilbert Street show in the making as director Ron Clark works with the actors on this acidly comic masterpiece.

For the Open House enter the Scene Shop directly via the alley that runs behind the building/parking lot, or go to the Riverside Theatre lobby.

Refreshments will be provided at the event.

For more information call the Riverside Theatre Box Office at 319-338-7672.
