Touring & Outreach Shows
Riverside Theatre's On The Go Touring Program is the main academic outreach component of Riverside Theatre. The program is designed to take theatre to children in school or after school settings as well as to traditional theatre spaces. Individual plays are geared toward either elementary or middle school audiences, but we have found that our productions have met with success at a variety of levels and age groups. Our professional actors are chosen for their ability to involve their audiences in the stories as well as to encourage participation.
Riverside Theatre will offer two shows that can tour to your school this year.
Please note that the tours have requirements in terms of space and a minimum audience size that we would be happy to talk with you about when you request a booking. These outreach offerings have been specially designed by Riverside instructors to align to the Common Core English Language Arts & the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Theatre, Dance, and Music in the following areas:
- English Language Arts
- Reading Standards for Literature
- Reading Standards for
- Listening & Speaking
- Writing Standards
- Critical Thinking & Reflection
- Organizational Structure
- Innovation, Technology, & the Future Skills, Techniques, & Processes

The Yellow Boat
