The Firehouse Center for the Arts is committed to the belief that the arts are an essential part of the learning experience. They enhance creativity, teach lessons in non-traditional ways, give youngsters the opportunity to express themselves in ways they never knew possible, and can establish a lifetime interest in artistic involvement.
To encourage these benefits, the Firehouse Center brings arts attractions to Northern Essex County specifically with young audiences in mind. We are grateful to the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank for their commitment to youngsters throughout the region, and their support of this vital link in the educational chain. Thanks to Janice Morse, and all of the folks at the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank, our local schools are a richer place to learn.
If you know of schools that might be interested in these enrichment programs, please call Evelyn Kovach, School Show Coordinator, at 508.641.7135 or send her an email.
These specific performances are for schools only and are not available to the general public. Please go to the Family Entertainment page to see shows that are presented evenings and weekends at the Firehouse for the whole family.
*Thanks to a recent gift from an anonymous foundation, the Firehouse is excited to now offer a limited number of transportation grants to schools who wish to attend the School Show Series. Read more here...
