What to Expect

The Company began life as a group of friends getting together to do comedy theatre in 1998. Clyde, founder of the company, worked with several other actors at Elaine’s Famous Dinner Theatre in Cape May, New Jersey. Then, the company was little more than an acting club where the members practiced and developed new material. However, this began to change when the group started to get outside work doing comedy shows around the Philadelphia area. Seeing this as a viable way to make a living, Clyde (who was obviously clinically insane) began to organize the group into a working company. Equipment, costumes and a truck were stolen (just kidding!) or politely acquired from anyone who would contribute and the Riddlesbrood theatre company was born. In Oct 2000, The Riddlesbrood players set up shop in Collingswood, NJ, and mounted the first production of "Scrooge: a Comedy!"
Within a year, the small but enthusiastic touring company, Riddlesbrood, got their big break performing dinner theatre shows for the Showbarn in Smithville, NJ, and shortly thereafter, the theatre company became incorporated in July 2001. The company went into permanent residence at the "new" Showbarn Dinner Theatre in September 2001, and Clyde began to write, cast, and produce all of the entertainment performed there.
As luck would have it, Clyde and Riddlesbrood found a new home in Historic Burlington City, NJ, in April 2006, and both set up residence there. Currently, the company is continuing its rise to prominence in the area as a professional and dedicated group of individuals dedicated to making all kinds of audiences laugh out loud!

Influences & Inspiration
Elaines Famous Dinner Theater (From years 1990 till about 2008) was run by Ronald Long. During that time, the shows were very improvisational, exciting and fun! As some of our founding members worked there during those times, it has served as an inspiration. NOTE: Elaine's Dinner Theater is now run by a different family, and the shows are no longer the same.
