JDP Theatre Company Kicks Off Third Annual Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser


Across the street from the cemetery in which part of Hocus Pocus 2 was filmed in East Providence, JDP Theatre Company's Pumpkin Patch fundraiser hit the hay! With the help of the Troop One Scouts of Seekonk, the East Providence High School football team, and East Providence middle school student volunteers, 4,000 pumpkins & gourds were unloaded on October 1st (in the rain and all) in preparation for opening day on October 2nd. 

The Pumpkin Patch fundraiser is held at 1336 Pawtucket Ave in East Providence (JDP’s rehearsal space) and has free entertainment & activities for all ages all month long. Featuring story times in the patch, acapella performances, a 20-minute original musical called “The Monster Mash Halloween Bash”, and a Hocus Pocus themed party with trick or treating, fortune telling, costume contests, and more, this is certainly not a fundraiser to miss. Visit @jdptheatreco on Facebook and Instagram to view the schedule of events & check out the selection of available pumpkins.
