Professional, live theatre in historic downtown Marine City

Riverbank theatre

The Riverbank Theatre is located in the historic Marine Savings Bank building in downtown Marine City. With its bank vaults and early 1900's architecture still intact,  theatre-goers will feel as though they are stepping back in time. Riverbank accommodates 180 patrons with tiered and box seating and features state-of-the-art lighting and sound technology. The intimate Snug Stage, just a few blocks down the street, hosts our smaller plays and musicals, youth classes, as well as special events.
