Originally based in Milton Pennsylvania, the Milton Area Community Theatre was founded in 2003 as a community of actors, directors, musicians and crew who were committed to bringing top-notch theatre to the Greater Susquehanna Valley.
In its first nine years, the group produced an impressive 16 shows on the Milton stage, ranging from holiday-themed concert pieces (Frosty Follies) to classic musicals (Brigadoon, Pippin, Chicago) to more contemporary fare (High School Musical). In 2011, we staged our first non-musical theatre play (Over the River and Through the Woods) in a new venue, the newly-renovated Campus Theatre in Lewisburg.
In 2012, we changed our name to RiverStage Community Theatre and produced an ambitious 10th anniversary season that included a musical, play and a live staged radio play. “We have always welcomed talented performers, volunteers and supporters from all across our region, not just Milton” said former President Jennifer Wakeman, “and we wanted a new name that reflected our ties to communities across the Greater Susquehanna Valley. Building on our years of experience in Milton, we wanted to let people know that the group was planning to branch out in terms of what types of productions we do, and where we do them.”
In 2018-19, we are proud to be beginning our seventh full subscription season, are continuing our partnership with Lewisburg’s Gaspipe Theatre Company, and are excited to have moved into a new home at the former Lewisburg High School building. Our goal will always be to bring together both professional and amateur talent of the area for the development and advancement of literary, artistic, musical and dramatic production. We hope you will consider joining us–as a performer, audience member, or supporter–as we continue to bring top-notch theatre to our area!
