Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre

Pawtucket, RI

The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre (The Gamm) creates epic theatre in an intimate space, engaging the audience intensely in current and recurrent issues of consequence. The Gamm further serves the public with educational outreach programming designed to support the theatrical experience and help sustain and enhance the intellectual and cultural life of its community. Hailed as “one of the most dynamic theater companies in New England.” by The Boston Globe, the company has developed a reputation for socially- and politically-engaged productions of both classic plays and new works. In their 30th season (2104-15), they produced their fourth U.S. premiere: an adaptation of Booker Prize winner Barry Unsworth's, Morality Play. The Gamm's educational program, Pawtucket Literacy and Arts for Youth (PLAY), is inspired by studies proving that arts-based learning is an effective way to create conditions that allow students to be academically and personally successful. Using a literacy through performance method, PLAY has been supporting the efforts of teachers and more than 29,800.
