PAWTUCKET – Burbage Theatre Company has moved into a dedicated space for the first time in its nine-year history.
The theater company has signed a five-year lease at 59 Blackstone Ave., a former mill building downtown.
Inside, the theater company has created a performance space that will allow different seating configurations, including a theater in the round. It has upgraded electrical systems and installed a permanent lighting set.
Additional improvements include more seating, for up to 100 guests, and dedicated bathrooms and dressing rooms for the actors and staff.
The company’s ninth season launched on Sept. 26, according to a post on its website.
Before moving into the Blackstone space, Burbage Theatre shared space with Ten-31 Productions, and operated out of the now-closed Aurora Providence.
