During the fall of 2021, the Rialto Theatre Foundation welcomed its first cohort of youth participants in Rialto StageCrafters. The semester-long program offers students experiential learning at the Rialto Theatre in a variety of subjects. Weekly classes are dynamic and draw learning opportunities from real-time live events taking place almost daily at our venues. Taught by Rialto Theatre Foundation staff and volunteers, at no cost to students, some of the topics covered include:

  • Sound Engineering
  • Lighting Design
  • Concert Photography
  • Booking & Hospitality
  • Marketing & Design

You can help the Rialto Theatre Foundation continue to provide practical, hands-on skill building and social connection for local youth. Please take a moment to offer your gift of support today.
