Riverside Theatre is hopping all throughout the summer, with alternating Howl at the Moon and Comedy Zone shows occurring Friday and Saturday nights on the Waxlax Stage, while free Live in the Loop concerts heat things up outside.

But July is extra special. Riverside supporters let it ride at the first of eight Vegas Nights fundraisers, which continue 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through July 27.

Patrons poured into the Orchid Lobby to purchase ‘casino money’ and try their hands at slot machines, blackjack, craps and roulette, all to benefit the Riverside Theatre for Kids’ Discount Tuition program.

Children were the ultimate winners, as Vegas Nights and the annual Festival of Trees are the two main fundraisers for Riverside Theatre for Kids. For more information, visit
