Black Rep to host re-opening party
PROVIDENCE -- The Providence Black Repertory Company will host a re-opening celebration and fundraiser at its theater on Westminster Street Friday after it was closed for two weeks because part of the ceiling collapsed.
The celebration, which starts at 5 p.m., will include impromptu theater, African drumming, poetry, and hip hop performances.
The cost of admission is a suggested tax-deductible contribution of $15, which can be made at The Black Rep Box Office.
The Black Rep says it lost more than $25,000 because of the two-week closing and insurance did not cover the entire cost of repairs. It's trying to raise money to make up for the loss.
