Riverside provides a landscape of imagination, where the young discover their creative voice through imaginative work. It is a landscape of adventure crafted especially for boys, but also providing co-ed programs, and cultural events for the whole family.
It is a place for boys to rediscover the art of boyhood through adventurous and imaginative learning experiences. It is a place where boys and girls work together in creative collaboration to play music, enact theatrical and film performances, and produce newspapers and broadcasts. It is a center for cultural renewal, where families gather for beautiful and inspiring events that remind us all that we are on a common journey in this life.

We are excited to bring the classic Frank Capra film, It’s a Wonderful Life, to the stage this December 13th and 14th. This beautiful story is one of the most inspiring screenplays ever written in the history of cinema. The script adaptation by Doug Rand is beautifully crafted and true to the film. This story George Bailey lives in the imaginations of people all over the world, and has inspired many to see meaning in their own lives. We, as a cast, have enjoyed entering into the life of George Bailey, just as Clarence, his guardian angel, entered into his life and inspired within him the hope that saves.
For the last three plays, Riverside has had its largest casts ever, and what a blessing to share this wonderful story with these actors, their families, and now with each of you. We also are now blessed with a professional theatre location in Oak Brook Terrace.
