Richmond Renaissance


You are cordially Invited! On May 6th and 7th at El Cerrito High School Performing Arts Theater, RYSE will debut its third annual production, Richmond Renaissance, written and performed by youth. The play is set in AnnaBelle's, a Black-owned juke joint in 1940s North Richmond, where history's Blues and roots of love inspire communal growth. Our multimedia theatrical performance will counter the traditional Richmond narrative of poverty and brutality by highlighting the community‚Äôs wealthy cultural past as an epicenter for blues, jazz, and zydeco. This is a youth-led ode to what once was and what could still be of a city whose single story has become one of perpetual violence.

Tickets are just $15 for adults (24 years and older) and $10 for youth. Prices will go up at the door, so buy your tickets today! Special discount available for groups of five or more. Contact for more details.
