Riverfront Playhouse is pleased to announce a special family Christmas production for 2020. ‘Tis the Season, written, produced and directed by Louis and Stephanie Hudson, features a talented cast of North State singers and dancers. The show will surprise and delight viewers with new and traditional songs performed in the Christmas variety show style with a running story theme.

Some of the songs the cast will be singing are Christmas is Coming, Silver Bells, and Oh Holy Night as well as dance numbers including Hot Chocolate, a fun, lively tap performance. I’m Getting Nuttin’ for Christmas is one of several songs performed by a group of precocious children.

With the new theatre in Downtown Redding finally completed, Riverfront was looking forward to welcoming audiences into their beautiful new home, but COVID had other plans. The financial obligations have not stopped, so an innovative approach was needed to produce revenue. ‘Tis the Season is the beginning of Riverfront’s answer to how we give our community live theatre during this unprecedented time.

“We hope to brighten your holiday season even though we cannot gather for live theatre this Christmas. We will continue to do our best to present quality virtual community theatre until the current circumstances change,” says Darryll Alvey, Riverfront Playhouse’s board president.

Due to COVID-19, Riverfront Playhouse will be offering the show online by virtual access. To purchase tickets, go to, go to ‘Tis the Season, and click “get ticket” and enjoy the performance at your convenience for just $15 per household. The show can be viewed between now and December 31.
