Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts, originally known as Theatre 13, was founded in 2009 by New Orleans theatre artists Gary Rucker and Kelly Fouchi as a side project to the already successful FourFront Theatre, which they co-founded in 2008. The mission of Rivertown Theaters is to bring new and exciting productions to the New Orleans area while providing local theatre artists an opportunity to perform and create.
