“Those who perceive in themselves this kind of divine spark which is the artistic vocation—as poet, writer, sculptor, architect, musician, actor and so on—feel at the same time the obligation not to waste this talent but to develop it, in order to put it at the service of their neighbor and of humanity as a whole.” John Paul II

Throughout the year Riverside actors, boys and girls ages 8-14, participate in seasonal theatrical performances. Drama is one of the most powerful means of communication for young and old. It permits the human person to enter into a narrative in which he plays a vital role. It helps form the imaginations, sentiments, and consciences of the young through a more intimate relationship with characters, stories, and great ideas.
