Meals on Wheels – Theater Night

On September 18, 2008, Riverside Community Players will be presenting “Leading Ladies”.  This is ‘Meals on Wheels’ only fund raising event each year.

Riverside Meals on Wheels, Inc. is a local, non-profit volunteer organization in operation since 1972, providing noon-time delivery of hot, nutritious dinner-style meals Monday – Friday. Their services are geared toward house-bound residents, seniors and anyone who is handicapped or has special needs within the City of Riverside. Meals can be prepared to meet special dietary requirements. This organization receives no funding from local, state or government agencies and is heavily dependent on volunteers. Any donations and/or volunteer service are always welcome.

Riverside Community Players is “theater-in-the-round” with 183 seats wherein the audience surrounds the stage. The play “Leading Ladies” is about two down-on-their-luck English Shakespearean actors, touring in the Amish country of Pennsylvania, who hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews. They resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. However, when they arrive in York they discover that the relatives are not nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound in Ken Ludwig’s newest farce.
