What we're about

If you love going to the theater, we'd love for you to come with us. Rhode Island has some amazing theater and we visit many of them every season.

How to Join

1. Review our group's description and check out our current and past meetups. See if the type theater we attend appeals to you.

2. Read the group's Reserved Ticket Policy here: http://www.meetup.com/ritheatre/pages/Reser...

3. Read the group's No Show Policy here: http://www.meetup.com/ritheatre/pages/No_Sh... (http://www.meetup.com/ritheatre/pages/No_Show_Policy/)

NOTE: You must indicate acceptance of the No Show and Reserved Ticket policies on your application. Any application that does not indicate acceptance will be returned.

4. Click the "Join" button. Please provide a recent photo of yourself when you apply. Applications that do not have a photo of the applicant will be declined. Why? Because we need to find you in the lobby of the theater and a photo of your dog, cat, or a large grey question mark does not help us recognize you.

Ticket purchase details vary by show. Details will be posted in the event description.

Membership fee
There is currently no membership fee for joining the group.

Some basics about how the group works:

* Check our site to find plays that appeal to you.
* RSVP and follow the instructions pertaining to tickets for that Meetup. General Admission tickets are purchased by each member directly from the theater. Reserved Seating tickets are all purchased by the event organizer, typically 45 days before the play so as to ensure good seating. At this time, the only accepted method of payment for Reserved Seating tickets is via Paypal.
* Actually come to the show (this is the important part)!

We have Meetups once or twice a month year round so there's sure to be something that appeals to you.

No-Show Policy

The week prior to an event to which you have RSVPed "YES", you will receive an e-mail from the organizer reminding you of the event. That e-mail will also include the organizer's cell phone number. If you are unable to attend an event to which you have RSVPed yes, you have three options before the play begins:

1) Change your RSVP to "NO" on the site.
2) Call or text the event organizer.
3) E-mail the event organizer.

Simply not showing up for an event to which you have RSVPed "YES" without doing one of those three constitutes a "no-show" and warrants removal from the group.

Liability Waiver

As a condition of your voluntary participation in the Rhode Island Theater Meetup Group you acknowledge and agree to the following: this group's activities are voluntary; the organizer of this group and the event coordinator(s) of this group's activities are volunteers; and you for yourself, your heirs, executors, and administrators release, hold harmless, and indemnify the group organizer and activity leader(s) and all members of this group from any and all claims for property damage, injury, illness, disability, and/or death - including those caused by negligence and/or other reasons.

All Shook Up [MUSICAL]

Jenks Auditorium

UPDATE: Community Players sent an updated schedule for this play. It is not running on the original date. The new date for the production is May 18th. For this Meetup, we'll attend The Community Player's performance of "All Shook Up." Here is a synopsis of the play: "The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever. All Shook Up is a rocking, heartwarming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music." Ticket Information Tickets are $23. Seating is General Admission. Each person is responsible for purchasing their own ticket. You may purchase tickets at the Community Player's Online Order (http://www.thecommunityplayers.net/) site or call the Community Players at[masked]. You do not need a member code to order tickets. Be sure to select the correct night for our performance! Meet-up Logistics Please be at the theater NO LATER than 7:00. Seating is general admission and they will not be holding seats for us. Seating is first-come;first-served, so please be prompt so we can all sit together. When you RSVP, I will provide my cell phone number in case you're running late or get lost.
