Welcome to the homepage of Local #23 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. For 126 years, we have been the crew working behind the scenes in several venues across Rhode Island such as….
– The Providence Performing Arts Center – The Dunkin Donuts Center – Veterans Memorial Auditorium – Rhode Island Convention Center – The Ryan Center at URI Kingston, RI – Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI – Bold Point Concert Venue, East Providence, RI
We also have members that have completed the entertainment technician certification program or the ETCP.
We provide individuals skilled and certified in all departments of show production areas including wardrobe references with IATSE Local 830
We have implemented a method of paying your Local 23 dues online. Here are the steps:
Use this link to send an email to Dave Allen, the secretary-treasurer, at
telling him how many quarters you want to pay for. The price, online only, will be $77.50 per quarter, which adds up to $310 for the whole year. This includes a surcharge for the Paypal service that we are using.
He will send you an invoice, to the email address you gave him, for the amount that you have requested. There will be a link in that invoice to the Paypal payment service. Click that. You will be sent to the secure Paypal portal, where you can use any major credit or debit card to pay. This will work on a desktop or mobile device.
You will receive a receipt for your purchase, and Dave will arrange to get your stamps to you.
You can still mail a check to Dave of course, and the price would be the normal $75 per quarter, the mailing address:
IATSE Local 23 PO Box 23044 Providence RI 02903
If you have any issues with this, please send Dave Allen another email and explain your issue. Thanks.
Crew Nation is making another round of grants available, as they did in April, this time for anyone who was affected by the layoffs in July, August and September. One of the conditions of this one is that you did not get any money from the previous round.
Charlie Ryan, our Business Agent, has posted a document on this website, download link here-
and will be official documentation of the shows that have been cancelled in all our venues. You may also use our website calendar as supporting documentation, as all of the cancelled and postponed events from the last several months are still listed on it. Give them the link to it, let them see:
