The Strawberry Theatre Festival Gives Back to the Community as it celebrates its 25thSeason. On Sunday, February 9, 2014 we have a full day of events that are FREE to the general public at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, located at 1040 Grand Concourse. There will be events suitable for youngsters as well as adults. The Riant Theatre takes pride in being able to fulfill its mission of providing a nurturing environment to develop new plays and outstanding artists. The bi-annual festival which is held in February/March & July/August every year has presented over 2,500 one-act plays since its inception.

On February 9, 2014 we are planning a full day of events that will include: performances of some of the best plays from the Strawberry One-Act Festival, a screening of the Video Diaries Project: A Series of Short Films about the Artists in the Festival, and performances from singers, dancers, spoken word artists, writing workshops, panel discussions with Theatre Producers, Playwrights, Directors, Agents, Actors and Casting Directors and the presentation of the PIONEER OF THE ARTS AWARDS & the COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD.

Through our Youth Empowerment Awards we provide internships, mentors, stipends and scholarships. Currently we are trying to raise funds to cover the expenses for the upcoming event. The money will go toward paying the performers, workshop instructors, speakers, scholarships, awards, catering, photographers, production staff, videographer, Studio HD500, a publicist and publishing our 8th Anthology of plays.

“Some of our alumni have gone on to work on Broadway, television, film and touring around the country,” said founder and artistic director Van Fisher. “I hope that you can help the Riant as we continue to fulfill our mission. We plan to stream live some of the performances on February 9th so please note that if you follow us on Twitter @RiantTheatre or www.facebook.com/RiantTheatre we will send you a reminder so you can watch the event live online if you can not attend in person.”

Thank you in advance and know that at the Riant Theatre you are always “Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!”
