Theater show for winter break
Dec 2019
I enjoyed the show. It was a two person play and I laughed through most of it. The two actors did a wonderful job. All the seats are in positions where you can see the stage very well. They go in an upward angle from the stage.

Great venue to see a musical
Aug 2019
Last night I saw Billy Elliot the Musical. The whole experience was great. The actors were talented, choreography was impressive, sets and sound were awesome. I sat in the very back row of the balcony and could see and hear everything perfectly.
The building is charming with high beamed ceilings and artwork in the lobby and stairwell. They sold snacks and soft drinks during intermission.
There is a public parking lot across the street, but on a busy night parking is tough. It is near to (and attached to) restaurants and a gelato place for a before or after snack/drink. There are many stairs up to get to the auditorium and more stairs down to use the restroom, so plan accordingly. I believe there is an elevator somewhere.

Webbers "Superstar" is playing now thru Aug 26th. I saw it on Sunday and it is the best production ever. I have seen many since the early 70's,but this was outstanding. The cast sang,dance and acted on a superior level. Congrats to the staff and the hard working cast for an outstanding production.I look forward to their other productions.

Good acoustics. Ample (sloping) seating. Good views of the stage. Before performance and during intermission drinks are available.

Great location near center and the water. Plenty of public parking nearby.

Wonderful volunteer staff. Elevator is available.

Definitely recommended.

beautiful little theater

I went to the Annual Documentary Film Festival at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in September and thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon of interesting films. The town itself was a delight to walk around it and there are plenty of cafés and restaurants as well. Loved this place!

a nice random night out......
Oct 2016 • Couples
The old saying; " nice things can come in small packages " certainly applies to the pint sized theater in downtown Newburyport : Firehouse Center for the Arts.....There's not a bad seat in the house
for sight or sound. A friend suggested ( knowing we were looking for some live entertainment ) the little Firehouse Theatre in Market square. We went a few weeks ago to see " Random Acts ", which was a series of original comical one act playlets
written and acted by a group of talented performers over a 24 hour period starting from Friday to its opening the next night at 8 P.M.
The result was a very amusing and pleasant evening night out in old Newburyport.
I was told that this type of production takes place at least once a year. They also offer a good variety of all types of Theater and live performances throughout the year.....

Wonderful, Intimate House
Nov 2015 • Couples
What a delightful small theater.

I had picked up a device to boost the sound offered for free by the theater. But I didn't need it. I heard every word, unaided.

And it is hard to imagine that there is a "bad seat in the house".

We enjoyed a great comedy, "The Complete Shakespeare, Abridged".

A wonderful production in a great little theater, we will watch their schedule for future offerings.

great night out
Mar 2014 • Couples
Haven't been for a while, but this is a great little theatre to see a play or performance. It's fairly small which makes it an engaging experience. Have seen lots of wonderful shows here. There are also lots of wonderful restaurants nearby for dining before or after.

Excellent regional theater
Nov 2014 • Couples
We saw a production of "To Kill a Mockingbird." This was our second visit to the Firehouse for a dramatic production. Well cast, well staged, blocked out well. All in all, an excellent production for reasonably priced tickets. Watch the schedule. We'll definitely return.
