More about "THE STANDS"

Written and Directed by the author of "Moonglow" and "First Night" Jack Neary

Four moms, one grandmother and one dad huddle together in the chill of a New England Saturday morning as they wait for their kids to begin their first Little League practice of the year. As we get to know them, we’re surprised, entertained and sometimes even shocked by what they have to say. Underneath the delightful banter, however, is the measured revelation of a horrible, life-changing moment they all will share before the end of the play.

From the author of the Players’ Ring’s recent hit, Moonglow, comes this stunning, suspenseful story about kids, parents and the shattering power of words.


With Trish Aponte, Jocelyn Duford, Kate Gilbert, Tara Johns, Ashley Risteen, and David Sullivan.

The Ring Spring Gala

We are delighted to invite you to a special fundraiser to welcome Summer and support the blossoming of our gem of a theatre! 

The event starts off with a cocktail reception at 5:30 PM at the Puddle Dock Restaurant, right opposite our theatre on Marcy Street. 

We will then make our way to the Theatre Lobby, featuring a visual art exhibition with works by Darlene Furbush Ouellett and the Silent Auction display. 

After a brief update on the Theatre's achievements and projects, at 7:30 PM "THE STANDS" will begin. 

The show will be followed by a meet & greet with the playwright and director Jack Neary, and cast.
