We believe that the arts and the local community are inherently intertwined. Indeed, the mission of the Contemporary Theater Company is to inspire, to entertain and to push the imaginations of the community. The South County, Rhode Island community forms our audience, our supporters, our friends, our family. We are a proud member of the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce, the Wakefield Village Association, and the Narragansett Chamber of Commerce.
We present theatrical performances for people we see daily on Main Street in Wakefield and others that we see at neighborhood events or at dinner at a local eatery. We teach South Kingstown High School students, and provide classes for all ages. We purchase our costumes, props and office supplies at local businesses. We draw our cast, crew and administrative staff primarily from South County.
We are happy to work with schools to accommodate student groups at theatrical productions and can often send cast and crew into the classroom to speak with students about the literary importance of the production and the value of the arts.
We partner with nonprofit organizations to donate tickets to worthy causes and we work with those that want to dabble in theater for the first time.
We are proud and honored to call South Kingstown and Rhode Island our home. Not only because it is where we received our start, but because of the roots we have established and the connections we have made. We could not imagine ourselves anywhere else.
We welcome your partnership proposal or request for speakers or tickets.
