4 PAWTUCKET SEPTEMBER 12-18, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION PAWTUCKET – With the Gamm Theatre now out of the Pawtucket Armory Arts Center and running shows in Warwick, building owner Brian Thibeault says he's actively marketing the space to other theater companies. The Gamm announced its first show at a new space on Jefferson Boulevard in Warwick on Sept. 4. Thibeault said there was some question as to exactly when the theater would leave, so he didn't advertise the space as being avail- able until now. How quickly would he like to have someone new in the facility? "As soon as possible," he said. The New Hampshire-based devel- oper said he's talked with a number of people who might be inter- ested in the space, which is located next to Tolman High School on Exchange Street. City officials have also mentioned some prospective tenants, he said. Thibeault said he plans to com- plete some minor renovations on the theater, as well as add new paint. He said he's not committed to having a theater fill the space. "It could be anything, anyone who wants to rent it," he said. Representatives from the Gamm announced a year ago that they were taking the company from downtown Pawtucket to Warwick. The Breeze reported last year that the owner of The Times building nixed a purchase and sale agreement with a developer looking to bring the theater into a larger space in that building on Exchange Street as part of an overhaul of the building. That move led to the loss of a grant secured to help plan the Gamm's move into the new downtown space. Armory owner seeks replacement for Gamm By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor An earlier ren- dering of what could have been the new home of the Gamm Theatre in The Times building on Exchange Street.
