During its initial ten year run, and now since its successful re-launch in 2007, IVRT has remained true to its vision by consistently producing critically-acclaimed and award-winning theatrical works, which have garnered widespread honors such as the Rancho Cucamonga Community Foundation’s Primavera Award for "Outstanding Contributions to the Arts".
IVRT is a non-profit, regional theatre company that has performed throughout the Inland Valley in various venues. In 2007, IVRT announced an alliance with the Candlelight Pavilion and the "Wednesdays Just Got Dramatic" concept was born. During the past four seasons, the Wednesdays series has become a huge success with sold-out runs of THE MOST HAPPY FELLA in 2009 (dubbed Inland Empire Weekly's "Pick of the Week"), KISS ME KATE in 2010, and CHICAGO in 2011, which recently broke box office and attendance records (also dubbed "Pick of the Week" by Inland Empire Weekly).
