Each season, PPAC’s Annual Gala brings together hundreds of supporters from within our community for an elegant evening of entertainment and spectacular food prepared by some of Rhode Island’s top restaurants and catering companies.  Contributions from the Annual Gala benefit PPAC’s Community Outreach Initiative and brings theater to life for thousands of audience members and emerging artists by making available low or no-cost programming. 

For 2019, PPAC’s Annual Gala will feature the musical HAMILTON on Saturday, August 3, 2019.  

For 90 years, this magnificent Theatre building has been a Rhode Island gem and cultural icon for the Ocean State.  Help it sparkle and shine for years to come by attending Rhode Island’s most anticipated Annual Gala.  PPAC Gala patrons enjoy prime seating for the show, complimentary parking and an exclusive post show reception.  For Gala seating, please contact Donna Santos at [email protected].
