CEDARBURG - The historic Rivoli Theater has been part of the Cedarburg's history for decades. 

"The building was built in 1880," said Alice Voigt. Alice and her husband Jerry manage the theater.  "It was originally a dry goods store.  In 1936, the owner turned it into a theater.  It's run continuously ever since."

Ticket prices are lower than normal, thanks to the 1,400 volunteers who work at the theater.

"We have retired couples, families with children, etc." Alice said.  "It's just a happy place to be."
