The 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, educators, and families. Our goal is to connect people to engaging creative performances and educational opportunities that ignite their imaginations and expand their experiential views. Our outreach and engagement 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 enrich our lives culturally. 

PPAC thanks our donors and sponsors for generously supporting our Community Outreach and Engagement programs and our Theatre!

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 PPAC’s many Community Outreach Programs. For more information, please contact PPAC’s Box Office at 401.421.ARTS (2787). 

PPAC is a non-profit organization with an ongoing commitment to giving back to the community via our Outreach and Engagement programming; your generous donation will enable us to continue these programs.
