Riverside Theatre is holding a hat and mitten drive in conjunction with its current show, Guys on Ice: An Ice Fishing Musical Comedy. The theatre is encouraging community members to bring in a new set of gloves/mittens, a hat or scarf (youth or adult sizes) to the Riverside Theatre box office. All donations will benefit Shelter House. As a thank you, all donors will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win a pair of tickets to a future Gilbert Street production. The box office is located at 213 N. Gilbert Street and is open Monday-Friday from noon–4 pm. Donations will be accepted through February 22.
During the run of Guys on Ice, the Riverside Theatre lobby will also feature a photography exhibit by Nancy Hauserman. The exhibit, titled “Just Folks”, features photographs that were chosen as reflections of the same joyful spirit of camaraderie that audience will see and hear during Guys on Ice. The photographs offer glimpses of people enjoying the simple but grand pleasures of life – friendship, family, sitting, laughing and eating – nothing done for external approval but just for the sheer pleasure of being. The exhibit features photographs taken in California, Hawaii, North Carolina, Oregon and Iowa.
Performances of Guys on Ice, a delightful story about two ice fishing buddies from Wisconsin awaiting the opportunity to appear on a cable TV fishing show, continue at Riverside Theatre through February 22. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances are at 7:30 pm, and Sunday performances are at 2 pm.
Tickets for Guys on Ice are $26 with discounts available for seniors and youth. Tickets are available by phone at (319) 338-7672, online at www.riversidetheatre.org or in person at the Riverside Theatre box office, located at 213 N. Gilbert Street, Iowa City, IA.
