WARWICK, RI — The GAMM Theatre opened its doors to about 100 members community Thursday with food trucks, face painting, an acoustic guitar player/singer, clown, and tours of its theater space in progress.

GAMM Artistic Director Tony Estrella explained the seating in the remodeled space, when finished, will be stadium seating and much closer to the actors on stage than patrons of Ocean State Theatre.

The new space will afford them the ability to create sets that are two stories high, and give them a wider stage to perform in, the space has been remodeled to maintain the intimacy theater goers will remember from the Gamm’s Pawtucket location. No one will be further than eight rows from the actors, he said, which will make the experience of watching a show at the Gamm an immersive experience.

The Gamm Theatre opens its 34th season Oct. 11 with The Night of the Iguana by Tennessee Williams.
