COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

LIBRARY PARTNERSHIPS

 

The Gamm Education Department was founded on a commitment to enhancing literacy skills through performance techniques. Partnerships with libraries are a perfect fit, and are tailored to meet the needs of individual branches.

Partnerships include:
 

  • Pawtucket Public Library

  • Coventry Public Library

SOCIAL IMPROV

 

Social Improv Workshops empower adults with social and intellectual disabilities through theater improvisation exercises. In this dynamic learning environment, participants gain social skills, learn to interpret social cues, increase self- expression, and gain confidence. All classes are designed to meet the needs of the group and are crafted based on experience, ability, and desired skill building.

 

"Our partnership with The Gamm Theatre has become invaluable to our program participants. The Gamm has provided us with an incredible opportunity for our participants to exercise their creative muscles through a series of unique and innovative interactive exercises and role playing. After their sessions, our participants are excited and animated, as they very enthusiastically tell us about their adventure! Our participants learned more about themselves, their respective strengths and potential, all while having a whole lot of fun."

KIDS READ ACROSS RI

Kids Read Across Rhode Island is an initiative of RI Center for the Book and the RI Council for the Humanities during which students across the state read the same book and engage in cultural activities centered on the themes in the text. The Gamm works together with high school students to adapt the book into a performance to be shared with school groups, libraries, and at the kick-off event held at the Rhode Island State House in May.

 FORUMS & SHARED SUNDAYS

The Gamm offers events and community forums centered on themes in our mainstage productions as a way to engage the community in thought-provoking conversations.
