The Town of Fallsburg News & Events 10/10/12

Town of Fallsburg proud to host SC Dramatic Workshop at Historic Rivoli Theater

Sullivan County has a rich history of nurturing great performers and presenting the best in talent. Our town, with its hundreds of hotels and bungalows, was always the epicenter of this activity in the Borscht Belt.


Today, while the hotels and bungalows are gone, that tradition continues unabated in South Fallsburg.


Every time I pass the Rivoli Theater, I can’t help but smile and take pride in how the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop continues to bring outstanding culture and entertainment to the residents of our town and Sullivan County.


South Fallsburg’s historic and magnificent art deco Rivoli Theater was always a center of cultural activity in our area.  The theater, which was opened by Israel and Arch Kaplan in 1923 and later owned and operated by former Town Supervisor Sam Rosenshein and his family, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.


Opened to showcase Catskill Mountain talent to residents and tourists, it continues 90+ years later to nurture cultural activity and be a great place to see plays, shows, and movies-thanks to the SC Dramatic Workshop, which purchased the Rivoli in the late 1990s.


The SC Dramatic Workshop, which recently celebrated its 62nd anniversary, has always been a leader in Sullivan County’s cultural scene and has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years. In 2012, they presented a number of great productions featuring very talented local actors, continuing its tradition of enriching the lives of citizens and tourists in our town and county.


What was also a cause for celebration in 2012 was that the SC Dramatic Workshop started showing feature movies at at the Rivoli for a very reasonable price of $7 for the first time since the late 1990’s. There’s now a brand new screen, a new movie projector and even a new popcorn machine.

Later this month, the SC Dramatic Workshop will feature the play “Bloody Murder,” a murder-mystery farce by Ed Sala.  It will be presented on October 19th, 20th, 21st, and then October 26th, 27th, and 28th.  I would urge you to treat yourself to this performance and future plays and movies presented at the Rivoli.


Check out the SC Dramatic Workshop’s website, like their Facebook page, and support their efforts to keep the cultural scene in the Town of Fallsburg and Sullivan County alive and well.
