Discover the Stadium Theater 2013 - 2014 Season!!!
Stadium Theatre Performing Arts Centre
28 Monument Square, Main Street
Woonsocket, RI 02895
The Stadium Theatre was built in 1926 and was recognized as one of the finest theatres in the country.
The Stadium Theatre was erected under the supervision of Mr. R. E. Hall, chief consultant, architect and engineer in the construction of the Paramount Theatre in New York. The Stadium Realty Foundation, Arthur I. Darman, President and Treasurer operated the Theatre. In 1926, artist Maurice Compris chose his theme of Muses to decorate the lobby and the Grand Hall.
The Stadium stopped operating as a daily theatre in the 1970’s and was left unheated for many years. Francis L Lanctot, former Mayor of the city of Woonsocket, had a vision that the Stadium could once again become vibrant and prosper. Through his enthusiasm, patience, and persistance the “Save Our Stadium” Committee was formed in 1991 with the soul purpose of saving and restoring the theatre to it’s former glory. After a strong, cross section of community leadership came forward and was able to demonstrate local support for the restoration of the theatre through public events, feasibility studies and economic impact projects; the non-profit Stadium Theatre Foundation was formed. The Foundation received it’s 501 - c (3) approval as a non-profit corporation in 1996. In March 1998, the Foundation purchased the theatre. Thanks to strong grassroots and business support, the Foundation was able to use grants and donations as a down payment. From 1996 to present, approximately Three Million Dollars has been raised. Restoration took place under the direction of Daniel Peloquin, Architect and the John Canning Preservation and Restoration Studios.
A gala 75th anniversary celebration took place in September of 2001. This magnificent facility has been operating ever since under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors and has offered outstanding local, regional, and nationally renowned live entertainment.
Cardi's Furniture is proud to support The Stadium Theatre. For a complete listing of shows, ticket purchase and more information, click the "Event Link" below.

Professional football player Steve Gostkowski wants to ensure that each child in our region experiences the joys of childhood regardless of health issues. That’s why he has joined with Hasbro Children’s Hospital to form The Steve Gostkowski Kick 4 Kids Club. The Club was launched at the start of the 2010 NFL season and attracted more than 40 loyal members in a few short months.
Here’s how it works. Each time Steve makes a field goal during a regular season game he donates $300 to Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and for each extra point he donates $100. Members of the Club pledge to match Steve’s gift at two giving levels – either $10 or $25 for each field goal and extra point – for maximum individual gifts of $250 or $500. During its inaugural season, the Kick 4 Kids Club raised over $16,000 for Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
Members of the Kick 4 Kids Club are eligible to win commemorative football memorabilia signed by Steve. Those who join at the higher giving level are also invited to a reception with Steve at the end of the season. At our recent celebration for the 2010 season we raffled several items including a signed Gostkowski jersey, cleats, hats and game balls. Steve offered warm thanks to attendees and spoke with passion about his support for Hasbro Children’s Hospital. He shared stories with great humor and humility about his experiences in the NFL.
Hasbro Children’s Hospital is fortunate to have the support of Citadel Broadcasting stations to promote the Kick 4 Kids Club on local radio. WPRI Channel 12 and Fox Providence have provided PSA’s which aired when the Club launched in late August 2010. Design services for the solicitation brochure were generously provided by (add)ventures.
Funds raised by the Kick 4 Kids Club are directed to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital General Fund which supports essential programs throughout the hospital such as Child Life Services, Healing Arts, the Injury Prevention Program, and a variety of clinical and enrichment programs.
The Anchor of Hope Fund was established in the year 2001 by the Roman Catholic
Diocese of Providence to provide significant, need-based financial assistance to Rhode Island
elementary and secondary Catholic school students most in need of aid.
Those individuals and organizations that generously and selflessly contribute to
this cause directly fulfill the mission of The Anchor of Hope Fund as they assist
students in obtaining an education steeped in moral, ethical, and spiritual tradition.
An education based on the principles and teachings of Jesus Christ.

Angelcat Haven Feline Rescue based in Plainville, MA is proud to announce it's 500th cat rescue!
According to President and Feline Coordinator Angela Frankudakis, "Lucky number 500 is a three month old kitten named Bory. She is just one of a group of eight cats and kittens taken in over the Labor Day weekend, which includes mom Aroura, (#499) and her two kittens Bory, (#500) and Alys (#501)." Says Frankudakis of the achievement, "We're especially proud that this milestone comes after only four years in operation! On behalf of the rescued cats, I would like to express my gratitude to our dedicated staff of volunteers and supporters, and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the choice to adopt a cat or kitten from us!"
With unemployment at an all time high and many local foreclosures, shelters and rescues are at full capacity.

The mission of Cape Cod Village is to meet the ongoing residential and community living needs of adults on the Autism Spectrum.
