Premiere Weekend Was a Smash!

Well folks, after months of preparation, hard work, and planning, the premiere weekend of 'The Tent: Life in the Round' is in the books. And what an exciting few days of festivites we had. Our friends at the Providence Performing Arts Center rolled out the red carpet for us, literally, and helped us throw one heck of a party.

It was amazing to see years of work finally come to life on the big screen. We had a packed house of theater-goers and Warwick Musical enthusiasts who came to watch the world premiere of our film. 630 WPRO's very own Ron St. Pierre and Buddy Cianci kicked off the evening as our emcees and introduced Larry Bonoff and me for a few quick words. Once we were done, the lights went down and we were off.

After the show, many of the audience members attended the post-show reception in the PPAC lobby and got to meet the filmmakers, those in the movie, and catch up with so many faces from Warwick Musical Theatre's past. It was an incredible night of fun and memories and we are so grateful to everyone who was able to be a part of the magic.

And last night, the film was shown at the Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket for an exclusive one-night engagement and the reaction there was extremely positive as well. Thanks to everyone who came out last night also.

Our film takes a break for 4 days until it begins a week run over at Showcase Cinemas Warwick (Quaker Lane) on Friday, August 28. We hope to see you there and look for some exciting announcements in the coming days too. Thank you again for all of your support!
