*** We are now unable to accept any more students for this season’s registration. ***
Each Riverfront Theatre Company season begins in September (normally the first Saturday after Labour Day in September), with in-person registration at Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church, at 3200 Woodland. The first opportunity for registration is given to our returning members in a June pre-registration. On July 15th, if we have enough room in the Company, we open pre-registration to new students, beginning with our waiting list.
We are unable to register students mid-season, as casting is already completed soon after registration, with auditions taking place very early in our process.
Students registered with RTC are all between the ages of 6 and 18, and must commit to regular attendance and availability for all performance dates, including those which occur during morning hours (usually 2-4 shows per season) on school days. RTC productions are full-team efforts requiring the dedicated efforts of all participants.
In the upcoming season we anticipate having approximately 2 small group rehearsals each moth, scattered throughout the year on assorted (but pre-scheduled) Tuesday or Wednesday evenings as well.
Here is a copy of the process and commitment involved in being part of Riverfront. Please read it carefully for important commitment information, including rehearsal and performance dates:

Parental volunteer time is also a necessity; RTC is run exclusively by volunteers, and the assitance of many is required each week and throughout the production weeks to ensure that it runs smoothly.
Because so few students withdraw from the program from year to year, we maintain a waiting list throughout the year. At this point, we already have a long waiting list for the 2019-2020 season, and are considering moving to a lottery system for new registrants.
Notifications go out mid-summer by email for any incoming students being accepted to the programme. FAILURE TO REPLY TO THE EMAIL WITHIN A WEEK WILL RESULT IN A LOSS OF PLACE ON THE WAITING LIST, and we will move to the next applicant.
Our 2019-2020 Season productions are under discussion but have not yet been announced.
