The City of Riverside is opening the doors to the Fox Performing Arts Center to the community for a sneak peek on January 16 and 17.

Community members will be able to tour the newly renovated lobby and auditorium at no cost.

In addition to the tours, the free two-day event will offer live radio remotes, children’s activities, Model A car display, community entertainment and refreshments.

In May 2007, more than 1,300 visitors took one final tour through the auditorium of the Fox before it closed its doors for construction. Now those visitors can come back and be awed by the remarkable renovation efforts that took place to restore this facility to its original grandeur.

The Fox Performing Arts Center is a 1642-seat state-of-the-art performance arts theater.

Thanks to the funding of the Riverside Renaissance Program, the Fox is ready to mesmerize its visitors. The inaugural concert season begins on January 22 & 23 with the Grammy Award-winning Sheryl Crow as the grand reopening performance.

Following Crow is Latin artist Benise, Natalie Cole, Warren Hill, Gladys Knight and much more. For a complete listing of concerts, visit www.foxriversidelive.com.

The Fox will also host a Broadway Series presented by Broadway in Riverside bringing Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar and Hairspray to their 2010 spring line-up.

“I take pride in what Riverside has accomplished with the renovation of the Fox Performing Arts Center,” stated Mayor Ronald O. Loveridge. “This will be the premier performance art theater for the Inland Empire and will showcase the best of professional and community talent.”
