    Riverside Dinner Theater The Pied Piper - The Musical

    In this charming adaptation of the classic tale, the good people of Hamelin find their town taken over by rats—and nobody, including the greedy mayor, knows what to do! Even Rattytatty, the pest control officer, admits defeat. Just when things can’t get any worse, who should turn up but an odd young man who calls himself the “Pied Piper.” The town agrees to pay a fee for the Pied Piper to get rid of the pests, so he promptly disposes of the cheese nibblers, as promised. However, the penny-pinching townsfolk now claim they are too poor to pay! In retaliation, the piper leads the children from the town and hides them within a magic mountain. The townsfolk quickly realize the error of their ways and search for the mysterious musician. Will the children be reunited with their families? Find out when you bring your own family to see this lively, not-to-be-missed musical -The Pied Piper!

  • 9 to 5 - The Musical

    Riverside Dinner Theater 9-5 - The Musical

    Riverside Dinner Theater
    9 to 5 - The Musical
    March 7, 2015 - May 3, 2015

    Pushed to the boiling point at their workplace, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In an ingenious conspiracy to gain control of the company, the girls discover that there’s nothing that they can’t do – even in a late-1970s man’s world. Adapted from the hit movie with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, this outrageous, thought-provoking, and lightly romantic mixture of friendship and revenge in the “Rolodex era” provides a glimpse into taking care of business with a not-so-soft feminine touch. We anticipate the return of TV and film star Sally Struthers to enhance a stellar cast belting out songs varying from the hilarious to the downright suggestive. Reserve early!
