THE ARCTIC PLAYHOUSE ARTS CENTER – CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
RAISING A COMMUNITY THROUGH THE ARTS
WHY ARE WE BUILDING A NEW FACILITY?
-Current 80-seat capacity theater located at 117 Washington Street, West Warwick is frequently selling out shows; a larger theater is needed to meet the community demands
-More space is needed to run programs & events simultaneously
-Current location is attached to residential properties – therefore, musical programs are limited
-A larger stage would allow for more robust performances, larger casts, and more intricate stagecraft -We currently do not have a cabaret stage or lobby gathering area which will be used before shows, during intermission, and for smaller, more casual performances
How Can You Help Us with This New Facility?
–Make a tax-deductible contribution. Any donation will help us create the future. A donation in any amount is greatly appreciated.

The Vision for The Future
The Arctic Playhouse is diligently working to renovate and construct the acquired building located at 1249 Main Street in West Warwick, RI into a functional, safe, and community welcoming performing arts venue. The entire project of transforming the building will take place in 3 major phases. Once the entire project is complete, the new Arctic Playhouse will allow for 200 audience members, include balcony seating, and will be equipped with high quality lighting and sound systems. In addition, there will be a large lobby gathering area equipped with a cabaret stage for smaller-scale performances. The basement of the building will be transformed into an administrative theater support space and will be utilized for performance rehearsals and auditions. Safety and compliance upgrades to the building will also be necessary including the installation of a new fire alarm system and ADA compliant accessibility. Our vision is to serve local communities as a performance venue, gallery, educational facility, and comunity- gathering place.
