Centennial Celebration Gala

Since our opening in May of 1920, the Rialto has enjoyed a close relationship with the many area performers who have used our stages and facilities to showcase their events. As a community theater, the Rialto has benefited on many levels from these partnerships, and as such, we would like to celebrate their talents by throwing a concert to remember. Join us on May 15, 2020, as we take a journey down memory lane as we dance and sing through the last 100 years.

Featuring the talent of several of our long-time community rental partners including: Berthoud Dance, Brad Fitch, Gary Schmidt, High Country Dance, Loveland Choral Society, Loveland Opera Theatre, Vi Wickam, and Wendy Woo.
