The Firehouse Center for the Arts is a non-profit center for the arts gratefully supported by you and others in the community. Our 191 seat theater is active throughout the year with Firehouse Produced events, partner presentations, and arts education programs. Everything we do is made better by the artists, audience, philanthropists, businesses, and volunteers that help us on a daily basis. It’s been said many times, but it remains true; it takes a village, and what a wonderful village supports the Firehouse!
