Outreach & Engagement at PPAC

Providence Performing Arts Center is committed to providing the community with the highest quality performances, learning opportunities and outreach to enrich the lives of students, families, educators and adults, while creating lasting shared memories for our “Family of Patrons.”  Our goal is to connect people to engaging creative performances and educational opportunities that open their hearts and minds, ignite their imaginations and expand their experiential views. Our engagement and outreach programs, performances, and scholarship programs offer unique and valuable opportunities for community youth to engage in the arts while developing critical thinking skills.  Every season features captivating performances and programs that expand our humanity and infuse our lives with connectivity.


Every dollar donated to PPAC’s Annual Fund is used to support the Theatre’s Community Outreach and Engagement, which Brings Theater to Life for thousands of young audiences and emerging artists each year by making available no or low-cost programming:

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.
