Riverside Players welcomes all members regardless of age, race, gender, ability, sexuality, religion, marital status, class or income.
None of the above factors have any bearing on a member’s ability to take part in the group’s activities if they so wish. The only requirement of membership is a desire to share the aims of the group, which are to educate the public in the dramatic arts and to further the development of public appreciation and taste in the said arts. Sharing the aims can be as a supportive ‘Friend of Riverside’ or as an active member.
We make every effort to facilitate attendance by the physically disabled or disadvantaged, such as assistance with transportation and the presence of an Emergency Aider at all performances. Our regular venue is fitted with a hearing induction loop and has priority seating and access to sanitary facilities for the chairborne disabled. In order to promote social inclusion, we occasionally offer concession price tickets to senior citizens, the unwaged and students, and also special flexible reductions for family tickets.
The performing arts is often considered as a medium in which those who are, or perceive themselves to be, disadvantaged or discriminated against, can find a level playing field. At Riverside Players we endeavour to provide this platform.
