Welcome to the River Theatre
A Commonwealth grant of $150,000 has transformed the old hall at Richmond River High School in Lismore into a multimedia performance facility with a new name the River Theatre.
Multimedia hardware and software have been installed enabling students to study the latest multimedia techniques as they apply to various parts of the curriculum, as well as using them in assignments, exhibitions, presentations and performances.
The River Theatre features computerised sound and lighting, a demountable stage and big screen capabilities.
Head teacher of creative and performing arts, Peter Howes, said the new technology promotes music and drama performances as well as providing a futuristic venue for art exhibitions.
Students can also learn non-performing theatre skills like lighting and sound production.
The River Theatre is now a fantastic theatre space which will marry with the incredible creativity of this school, Mr Howe said.
