About Us

The River Region Drama Guild, Inc. is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1994 under the Internal Revenue code as a 501(c) 3 organization. It is the only Community Theatre Group in St. Charles Parish.  The Drama Guild welcomes all and provides everyone with the opportunity to increase existing talents and creates an environment to learn new ones.  Maybe the best thing that the River Region Drama Guild can provide is a chance to expand unknown potentials - the chance for individuals to explore and display the talents within, their talents that may otherwise never be discovered on their own.  

Through our mentoring programs, students can get the opportunity firsthand to learn the roles of Director, Choreographer, Music Director, Stage Manager, Sound, and Lighting.  Through our Young Actors Workshops, children learn and hone their skills in acting and singing.


In addition, to play production, the River Region Drama Guild, Inc. publishes a newsletter, Callboard.  The Callboard is emailed to households announcing audition dates and cast listings as well as other theater-related subjects.

On August 29, 2021, Hurricane IDA directly impacted St. Charles Parish, LA, causing devastation to our building and warehouse.  Our insurance company called it a "total loss."  Through devastation comes great opportunity, and through insurance claims and help from this great community, the River Region Performing Arts & Cultural Center received a much-needed "facelift."  A renovation project occurred, restoring some old things and creating new ones.

We look forward to serving the community of St. Charles Parish by bringing our combined knowledge and experience of Theatre.  

Of course, if you can, donations are always welcome and will be used to replace crucial items needed to provide Theatre to the River Parishes. Please click our donation page if interested or mail it to P.O. Box 845 Destrehan, LA 70047.
