Inland Valley Repertory Theatre: History


Inland Valley Repertory Theatre Company (IVRT) was founded in 1990, by Frank & Donna Marie Minano, with the goals of presenting high quality local theatrical productions to promote the talents of aspiring actors of all ages.

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 eight seasons, the Wednesdays series has become a huge success.
