Support PPAC’s Community Outreach Initiative

PPAC is participating in this year's #GivingTuesday! In case you haven't heard, the goal of #GivingTuesday is to create a global day of giving back, which celebrates generosity and kindness. The day itself falls on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year and this year, it is December 1. All donations to PPAC will purchase tickets for "littles and bigs" (kids and their mentors) of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State. Please donate because everyone should get to experience the joy of live theatre at PPAC! We hope you are able to join the millions who are making #GivingTuesday the huge success that it is!

Donate Your Tickets

Please choose carefully when making your show selections as all ticket sales are final. However, we understand that a situation may arise in which you will be unable to use your tickets. In this case, tickets may be returned (and received) by the Box Office at least 48 hours prior to the performance for a tax-deductible donation equal to the face value of the tickets. Your donation will be greatly appreciated as it will help offset the costs of one of PPAC’s many Community Outreach Programs. For more information, please contact PPAC’s Box Office at 401-421-2787

PPAC is a non-profit organization with an ongoing commitment to give back to the community via these programs. Your generous gift will enable you to Bring Theater to Life in the further development and continued success of PPAC’s Community Outreach Initiative.

PPAC thanks all of its sponsors and donors for their continuing support of the theatre’s ongoing commitment to the community.
