The Firehouse Center for the Arts hosts a wide variety of live performances throughout the year- from Firehouse Produced theater and professional musicians to comedy nights and local dance troupes, there’s something for everyone. Our intimate Arakelian Theater (191 seats) features excellent acoustics and there’s not a bad seat in the house. If you’re looking for excellent arts and live entertainment, (without fighting Boston traffic), then the Firehouse is the place for you.
