Construction on the United Theatre arts complex in Westerly starts Friday
Story By Kristina Dorsey
Many a construction project over the years has come and gone before reaching the actual building stage. After all, coming up with fabulous ideas is easy; it’s actually making them happen — and raising the money for them — that’s difficult.
That’s why the groundbreaking Friday for The United Theatre project in Westerly is so noteworthy.
With the 1:30 p.m. event, the former United Theatre and next-door Montgomery Ward building on Canal Street will be moving closer to transforming into an arts complex.
