Clara Graham says audiences of all ages are welcome to come and enjoy the shows, “We have tons of kids in this show, but I think I really enjoy acting for just the thrill of it, like Chelsea said, neither of us really have very much stage fright, it’s more like stage hyperness for me.”
Originally based in Milton, Milton Area Community Theatre was founded in 2003. In 2012, the organization changed its name to the RiverStage Community Theatre; and in 2017, they moved to the Greenspace Center in Lewisburg. The RiverStage Community Theatre relies on volunteers to put on their productions.
“Giving opportunity, that’s one part of our mission, is to give opportunities for folks like that in the community to come out and be a part of a show whether it’s on stage or backstage, and people just love it, so we’re glad, we hope it keeps up,” Jove Graham said.
