Malorie Glavan, who’s been involved with the all-volunteer theater for the past 10 years and most recently played Mrs. Peacock in Riverfront’s production of “Clue”, is the 41-year-old theater’s first manager.

“We are extremely excited to see where this new chapter takes us,” Darryll Alvey, Riverfront Playhouse’s board president, said in a news release. I have had the privilege to work with Malorie on several plays, and her dedication to her craft and our theater is apparent in all she does.”

Glavan has a theater arts degree from George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon.

“Over the years, Riverfront Playhouse has given me a creative outlet, a place to play, and friends who have become family. I am so excited to be able to give something back to Riverfront and to have a front-row seat to this next big adventure — I can’t wait to see where it takes us,” Glavan said.

Cascade Theatre to no longer require proof of vaccine

Thursday, Nov. 4

The Cascade Theatre will no longer require patrons to show proof they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 or evidence of a negative test.

The downtown Redding theater had required either one since the start of its 2021-22 season in early September.

“As the incidence of COVID-19 continues to decline in Shasta County and following guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the historic Cascade Theatre … today announces that it will no longer require that patrons provide proof of vaccination against the COVID-19 virus or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test for attendance at its indoor events. The new policy change covers all artists, staff, ushers, and volunteers,” theater officials posted on Facebook.

But patrons will still be required to wear masks unless they are eating or drinking at the concession stand or in their seats.

“Patrons should not attend events at the theater if they are feeling ill; Cascade Security staff will conduct contactless temperature checks before admitting patrons to theater events,” official said.

The theater will reevaluate its vaccine and masking policy each month as conditions and medical guidance evolve, officials said.
