Theatre For Everyone

Artists' Exchange's Theatre brings quality theatre productions and programming to the community of Cranston; a community of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities.  We celebrate our love of the theatre with several in-house productions each year, from the annual One Act Play Festival, to the holiday favorite"A Christmas Carol," with our own unique twist, and much more.

We also serve as a host venue to many local theatre companies and artists who may be interested in putting on a production.  

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. 

Give a man a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

- Oscar Wilde


There are two venue spaces available for rent for performances, or events: The Black Box Theatre at 50 Rolfe and Theatre 82. 

The Black Box Theatre can serve as both a traditional black box theatre, as well as thrust space, with stadium-style seating. 

For more information please see our Rentals subpage. 

Theatre 82 is our secondary venue of Artists' Exchange, and serves as host to both performance and instruction.  Theatre 82 is a very flexible black box space, and has been used in a multitude of functions. This space is complete with two downstairs dressing areas and green room waiting area.
