Performing Arts at RMA
Drama Director: Mr. Mike Smith
At Riverside Military Academy, a young man may discover a new-found talent and interest in the performing arts!
Riverside cadets have performed a wide range of plays and musicals including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Rivals, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Romeo and Juliet, Twelve Angry Men, and Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure. Additional cast members often include local actors from the Hall County, GA community.
Our cadets compete in regional and state competitions, including the State Literary Meet, and they frequently receive praise for their performances as well as compliments from directors and actors of competitor schools. Riverside cadets excel in the spotlight!
Choral Director: Ms. Lynn Lathem
Riverside cadets often audition and participate in the Georgia Music Educators Association All State Chorus, the 9th Distric Honor Chorus, and the State Literary Meet. Our vocal ensemble is annually invited to perform in Hall County community events.
Chorus members participate in the RMA Holiday Concert with Riverside concert band members. They sometimes work alongside cadets in the theater department to perform entertaining musicals for the Riverside audience and community members. Our chorus members even audition to sing the National Anthem at sporting events such as the Gwinnett and Atlanta Braves’ games! Our chorus also performs during Riverside's Commencement ceremony each May.
