Firehouse Center for the Arts

A Hallmark of Local Arts & Culture

 

Theater & Arts Collaboration

The Firehouse Center for the Arts has become Newburyport’s hub for collaborative arts and is a highly regarded North Shore destination to experience top quality arts and entertainment.

Once a market house and lyceum for the Newburyport community back in the 1800’s, the Firehouse Center for the Arts is now an expectational choice for: theater, music, dance, film, stand up comedy and so much more.

The Firehouse Center for the Arts has become Newburyport’s hub for collaborative arts and is a highly regarded North Shore destination to experience top quality arts and entertainment.

Managed by the Society for the Development of Arts and Humanities (SHAH), this intimate theater with 191 seats overlooks Waterfront Park in downtown Newburyport, Massachusetts. 

Live performance by local, regional and national artists are on the calendar year round, as well as a fantastic art gallery featuring 12 solo-artist shows a year.

Plus, holding true to the belief that the arts are an essential part of the learning experience, the Firehouse Center offers enrichment programs exclusively for schools.

Recent school shows produced include Boxed In, by Stephen Faria and Forbidden Newburyport, written and directed by Suzanne Bryan.

These productions teach lessons and enhance creativity, allowing students to express themselves in non-traditional ways.

For all of this we say, Bravo!
