2017 Winner

Woonsocket School & Theater Project

In 2015 a committee was formed to explore options for addressing the concerns of the use of the school gym each spring when the school play is held. A committee was formed consisting of school and community members.

The idea proposed was an addition to the existing community center. The project included dressing rooms and storage rooms in addition to a stage. The school committed $35,000 and the city committed $25,000 along with local volunteers raising more than $44,000 in donations in less than two years. The commitment of the Woonsocket school, the city of Woonsocket and especially the support of the community made this project a success. Woonsocket is fortunate to have performing arts programs and opportunities to participate and enjoy a wide variety of performances.
