Renovations are under way in preparation for the beginning of the 2018-2019 season, with a bigger stage and more flexibility. [CREDIT:The Gamm Theater] An artist’s drawing of the renovated exterior at 1245 Jefferson Blvd., soon the new home of The Gamm Theatre.

Dressing rooms with showers are being installed in the basement, and rehearsal space, administrative offices, and classrooms will be on the building’s second floor. There will also be a “green room” for the performers to rest between scenes.

Besides the additional space for the performers, the new theatre will offer more parking than current patrons of the Pawtucket space have enjoyed, said Tony Estrella, Gamm’s Artistic Director. The Gamm called Pawtucket home for the last 15 years.

Although the theater’s personnel liked the building, the limited size was a hindrance, Estrella noted. [CREDIT: Peter Goldberg] Construction under way in the lobby at 1245 Jefferson Blvd., soon the new home of The Gamm Theatre. Read more from warwickpost.com…
