Cathy Levesque and Michelle Pezza from Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket, as well as NiRoPe, Ron and Pete Cardi, joined The Rhode Show Wednesday to talk about upcoming events and home theaters.
From movies, to American Idol to sporting events, wouldn’t it be fun to have a home theater set up in your entertainment room? Cardi’s Furniture has the best selection when it comes setting up that home theater.
“It’s more than just sporting events, families are enjoying movies or any of the great TV series that are on WPRI right now in their own home theater, and no matter what size your personal home theater is, we have the best selection of comfortable seating, entertainment centers, TV stands, area rugs, and accessories to complete your look. If you want to create an area where each person has their own seat, we have individual recliners that join together and you can put as many together as you need, or have them as single seats. These are power-reclining chairs, some with adjustable head-rests, built in charging stations for your electronics, illuminated cup holders and floor lights so you can keep the room lights low for optimum viewing. If you need help planning out the space, come in with the room dimensions and let our staff assist you with a free room layout using our room planner, and don’t forget: we’re Cardi’s Furniture: we’re going to get it to you faster than anyone else!” explained Ron Cardi.
And some folks flock to a different kind of theater. The kind with live entertainment. At the end of May, there’s actually an upcoming Auction for the Arts at The Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket.
“We have an Auction for the Arts Gala. And the Auction for the Arts Gala is the last Thursday of May, it starts at 6 o’clock and your admission includes tastings from 13 different restaurants throughout the state,” said Cathy Levesque. “We are going to be offering 250 items, that everyone today can view online by clicking on our website, you can bid and buy today online. And some of the items will be brought to our live auction.”
With the month of May comes thoughts of summer. The Stadium Theatre has plenty to do for kids on their school break, as a summer camp is now being offered.
“The kids all come to us for our summer camps and we have multiple sessions. And they come and spend the day, do all things theater related, put on programs, plays. It’s so popular that we are expanding into a building next door, The Stadium Conservatory, and that will house set and prop building, costuming and rehearsal space,” explained Michelle Pezza.
Stadium Theatre is truly a living, breathing complex in Woonsocket, and so many great volunteers make it what it is.
“When we did our first big event with Stadium over a decade ago, we received the warmest welcome from the volunteers and staff then, and so many of them are still so committed to the organization, we see them around the state at different events and we always reminisce about the fun times we’ve had there! We’ve gone to events and meet students from Woonsocket and when we ask if they know of the Stadium, they can’t tell us their favorite stories fast enough, they love it! The Stadium Theatre is so much more than a place to go enjoy a great show, it’s a vital part of the community in Woonsocket, Rhode Island and neighboring Massachusetts that attracts talent and acts from all over the world! Truly a world-class theatre!” said Pete Cardi.
