A very active and welcoming performing arts center right in Natick center. The building is a beautiful conversion of an old firehouse. The performers are of good quality and appeal to a variety of audiences. Ticket prices and reasonable and the theater is intimate.

First and foremost, last night's Naturally 7 concert, i.e., with a standing ovation after one song during the middle of the show, is indicative of the high quality of entertainers who perform at TCAN.

With most ticket prices from $20 - $45 for a good show, you can't go wrong. The icing on the cake is free parking & good restaurants within walking distance of TCAN.

If you are in metrowest and you don't want the hassle & cost of going into Boston for a show, give TCAN a try. I believe you will find it to be a GREAT value!

Membership is inexpensive and it saves you a few dollars on tickets, but, most importantly, it helps support this wonderful venue, TCAN.

We have been to dozens of concerts here and love it. Saw Naturally 7 last night (acapella group that mimics musical instruments using human voice only) and they were fantastic. Never seen a bad show here and the staff and volunteers are wonderful!

I have been attending shows and performances at TCAN for years and have never been disappointed. From Edwards to Winston, Aztec Two Step to Harvey Leonard, this community theater has "got it right". Affordable and quaint, the programming touches all musical interests. A Utopian Experience.

The TCAN always has great shows. Sometimes plays, other times performers. You can access a list on the Natick Website.

TCAN is a great place to see a show. Small, friendly, intimate, clean and good acoustics. We saw GE Smith and Jay Weider here Saturday night. The band was great and they put on a fabulous show in a very nice setting. Thanks to TCAN andthe entertainers fir a great evening..

Recently saw their stage production of the play "Picasso at the Lapin Agile". Another well done show. Only $23 for the ticket and free parking. You would spend $20 to park in Boston for a show.
Ok, it's not Broadway in Boston, but these are outstanding community theatre performances at great prices and no hassle of going into Boston. Support local theatre and have a great time.

My husband and I love The Alternate Roots band and were so glad to see they were playing in this theater! We have been looking forward to taking a drive there and were so impressed by this beautiful place. TCAN has great sound and great seating and really nice people working there as well. We go to shows in small venues as often as possible and we have been checking for shows here because we our coming back!

An afternoon production of Steve Martin's 'Picasso at le Lappin Agile' at TCAN.

Great little venue, and an attentive and packed audience enjoyed a spirited performance.

Deserves all the accolades afforded to it.

A great Nields show last evening at TCAN. Super venue - from easy parking to plenty of food options nearby to intimate setting and terrific sightlines and sound. Highly recommended.
