Work With Us

Riverside Theatre is committed to creating an inclusive workplace that values members of our whole community. We strongly encourage qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply and/or audition.


Auditions for our 2022-2023 season have already been held. Any additional auditions for the season will be announced and posted.

Call for Submissions: “Ghost Light”

Riverside Theatre is seeking submissions of short ghost stories to be performed at our very first “Ghost Light” event this Halloween! Do you have a spooky story to recount? An Iowa City haunting that sends shivers down your spine? A chilling concept that’s lodged in your brain, just begging to be read out loud? We want to hear it! 

We’ll be selecting six of the spookiest submissions to be performed at “Ghost Light” – either by the authors themselves, or by one of our community’s most celebrated performers. Submissions should take 5-10 minutes to read out loud, and lean into spookiness and suspense without relying on gore, violence, or abuse. 

The deadline for submissions is September 21st. Please send submissions and any questions to The authors of selected pieces will receive a $50 stipend.
