    A Short History of RiverHawk Productions
     
     
     
    Since its inception in the cold winter of 2012, RiverHawk Productions has been dedicated to bringing northern Virginia the absolute highest quality shows (at the middle school level) in our entire nation.  Over our past five shows: Seussical (2012), Beauty & the Beast (2013), Back to the 80s (Summer Stage 2013), Shrek (2014), Tarzan (2015), The Little Mermaid (2016), and Dracula (Summer Stage 2016), and Mary Poppins (2017) 1,500 students have brought audiences of over 27,000 people, full Broadway versions of your favorite family shows (all through the talent of the most incredible kids to have ever existed - the students of Belmont Ridge Middle School).  Winner of 30 national titles (6 for Shrek, 3 for Tarzan, 11 for Little Mermaid, 2 for Dracula, and 8 for Mary Poppins), and nominated for 36 others (11 for Shrek, 5 for Tarzan, 9 for Little Mermaid, 3 for Dracula, and 8 for Mary Poppins), RiverHawk Productions is ecstatic for what looks to be the greatest spring main stage production to date!
     
     
    This spring, allow us to take you on a journey to fifteenth century Paris where you once again shall hear bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus is equally enthralled. As the two vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo and his friends (the Gargoyles of Notre Dame) to save them all!
     
    You will forget you are sitting in a middle school auditorium with gorgeous costumes, professionally designed and engineered moving sets, lighting and sound effects from our state of the art boards, epic dance choreography, and of course the unrivaled talent of our cast and crew - this is a production that you and your family will not want to miss!
     
    Come be a part of a tradition that has been changing the lives of middle-schoolers and their families for six years.  We CANNOT WAIT to make it seven.
     
    The mission of RiverHawk Productions has always been to create an equitable and engaging environment of theatrical excellence where students are encouraged to excel as actors, singers, dancers, performers, stage/tech crews, instrumentalists, but most of all, as people.  No matter what your experience, the musical is the place for you (or your child).  Above the art, this is a place where students make strong friendships, gain self-confidence, and feel proud that they are a part of a production that is far larger than themselves.  Nurturing your child artistically, academically, and socially in a safe and energetic atmosphere has always been my top priority.  I look forward to working with your children.  It truly is a privilege.  
     
    They are some of the absolute best people I have ever met.  
     
    The honor and pleasure continues to be mine,
