Riverside Theatre, Iowa City's resident professional theatre, is excited to announce its 2011-2012 Gilbert Street Season.

This season---the theatre’s 31st---includes a freewheeling solo show by Megan Gogerty, a quirky Irish comedy by Martin McDonagh, the return of an ice fishing musical favorite, and a thriller recently produced on Broadway:

 

FEET FIRST IN THE WATER WITH A BABY IN MY TEETH

September 9 – October 2, 2011

By Megan Gogerty

She should totally have this parenting thing down. So why has she locked herself in the bathroom, the sounds of Dora The Explorer muffled only by her tears? Megan Gogerty returns to Riverside with the laugh-out-loud, solo show she previewed during Walking the Wire in March 2011.

 

THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN

October 28 – November 13, 2011

By Martin McDonagh

A wickedly dark comedy about a teenage orphan in an excitement-starved Irish village stirred into a frenzy by the arrival of a Hollywood film crew. Co-production with Cornell College.

 

SMALL MIRACLES

November 25 – November 27, 2011

By Ron Clark

Get in the holiday spirit with a reprise of this moving and personal tribute to Christmas past, by Riverside Theatre’s resident artist, Ron Clark.

 

GUYS ON ICE: AN ICE FISHING MUSICAL COMEDY

January 20 – February 19, 2012

Book and Lyrics by Fred Alley

Music by James Kaplan

It’s back! The smash hit musical about ice fishing, cold beer, good bait, and the Green Bay Packers returns to Riverside.

 

WALKING THE WIRE: THIS WILL NEVER WORK

March 2 – March 11, 2012

Our annual monologue festival of original monologues from playwrights across the country. This year’s theme is sure to yield tales of square pegs and round holes…hare-brained schemes…and skeptics proved wrong!

 

A STEADY RAIN

March 30 – April 15, 2012

By Keith Huff

Two Chicago cops must face the worst sides of themselves---and each other---when a series of harrowing events spirals out of control. Produced on Broadway in 2009 starring Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig.
