Riverside Theatre to celebrate ‘Mardi Gras Nights’ in February

NEWS RELEASE

Let the good times roll as Riverside Theatre celebrates Mardi Gras Nights with themed weekends on February 16 & 17 with performances of The Comedy Zone and on February 23 & 24 with performances of Howl at the Moon.

What started as a simple celebration in medieval Europe, Mardi Gras has grown into a worldwide bash of fun and frivolity. Mardi Gras, French for “Fat Tuesday,” is considered the last night of rich food and indulgences prior to the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. While festivities differ from country to country and even city to city, New Orleans’ celebrations are considered the grandest in North America with great food and highly entertaining parades showcasing elaborate floats and energetic bands.

Riverside Theatre’s Mardi Gras Nights takes place February 16-17 and 23-24, 2018 and will offer New Orleans-style food and fun with performances on the Waxlax and Outdoor Stages.

Scheduled The Comedy Zone comedians:

February 16 & 17 – Sid Davis and Nick Cantone

Scheduled Howl at the Moon musicians:

February 23 & 24 – Ken Gustafson and Rhoda Johnson

Live in the Loop musicians:

February 16 & 23 – Rowdy Roosters (Dixieland / Jazz Band)

February 17 & 24 – Category 5 & The Storm Horns (Party Band)

Tickets for Comedy Zone are $12 – $18. Tickets for Howl at the Moon are $12 – $22. Live in the Loop performances are FREE.
