Frequently Asked Questions 

 Your Trip to the Theater 

Is the theater air conditioned?

Yes! The theater is air conditioned to keep everyone comfortable.

Does the theater have a bar?

Yes! We have a full bar with lots of local beers, wine, spirits, specialty cocktails for each show, water, and local sodas. We also have cookies from Sweet Cakes Bakery in Peacedale and chocolate from Sweenor's Chocolates in Wakefield.

Is seating assigned?

Seats are not assigned, so you choose your seat when you come into the theater. We recommend getting here early to get the seat you want!

How early should I arrive?

The doors to the theater will open between 20 and 15 minutes before the show begins. On very busy nights, we may open earlier than that.

Is there parking nearby?

There is free parking in the lot surrounding the theater, as well as in two adjacent town lots and along Main St.

What happens if I'm late?

We often have excited audience members waiting for a sold-out show. In the case of a sold-out performance,

if you have not arrived or been in contact with us by showtime, your seats may be released to standby patrons. If you are running late, give us a call at 401-218-0282 and leave a message. Often we're too busy right before a show to answer the Box Office, but we'll see the message and save your seats! For most other performances, we'll be able to seat you during an opportune moment.

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes! You can get them by coming to the theater, giving us a call, or online here.

Do you have classes for kids? Adults?

We have classes for both children and adults. Find out more about our classes and camps here.

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes! We are a 501(c)3, so all donations are tax deductible. Talk with your financial adviser for more info.
