Welcome to the Firehouse!

The Firehouse Center for the Arts is a 195-seat intimate theater located on the waterfront of beautiful downtown historical Newburyport. This vibrant cultural center offers national, regional and local live performances at affordable prices. We believe the Firehouse is one of the best assets our community has to offer!

    Firehouse Picture Gallery > Volunteer Holiday Party January 2013

    Thanks to the cadre of volunteers under the leadership of Evelyn Kovach, the Firehouse is able to welcome hundreds of patrons to each show and each event. It is the efforts of the volunteers that ensure we are safe, that we get to the right seat, and that the curtain goes up on time. And that's only the tip of the iceberg! What patrons don't see are the countless hours spent before and after the show: addressing mailers, stocking the pantry with your favorite intermission treats, and cleaning up after the party is over -- to name just a few of the myriad tasks they attend to performance after performance. To each of them we say thank you and Happy New Year!
