Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts’ Artistic Directors, Kelly Fouchi and Gary Rucker promise a very entertaining schedule of productions for the 2020-2021 season, artfully produced and directed at the multi award winning theater in Kenner’s historic Rivertown

The sure-to be sellout line-up of award-winning musicals and plays are all enduring favorites rarely seen in New Orleans that pay homage to many of Broadway and Hollywood’s greatest playwrights, composers and lyricists.  

"This year we polled our audiences for the shows they would like to see. We listened and delivered! All of the shows in the upcoming season were top choices by our patrons, who are so very important to Rivertown Theaters. We are grateful for all the feedback and support," added Fouchi.

“This season continues to carry out our mission in offering the highest-quality productions, featuring the incredibly gifted local performers throughout the metropolitan area,” Fouchi added. “We continue to offer our young performers on-stage opportunities and nurture their talents. It’s rewarding to see the young performers use the skills and experience they gain working in our children’s program, to perform aside the adults in our mainstage productions, as so many have this past season.”
