Rialto Community Players will endeavor to enrich our community through cultural and artistic expression.
The first show, which premiered in 1982, was a melodrama. The show was well received and the Rialto Community Players were off and running. Well, running might not be exactly correct, as the conditions were primitive at best as you might imagine. Actors dressed in paint closets, ran across to the Senior Center for restroom breaks between acts and lighting consisted of coffee cans behind kitchen floodlights. The sets were painted behind steel accordion curtain that kept the basketballs from bouncing off of the volunteers' heads during set construction.
But the little group continued to thrive and continued to grow in both the quality of their productions and the size of their audience. Conditions were still difficult, to say the least, but in 1988 Parks and Recreation Director Sandy McKinley suggested that the city of Rialto build an indoor pool and theatre complex and Rialto Community Players was once again able to spread their wings and grow.
