Our Approach

As we return to the Arakelian Theater, we do so with your safety and the safety of our performers and staff foremost in mind – and will continue to meet or exceed the safety guidelines distributed by the CDC and the State of Massachusetts.

We will continue to minimize risk using all tools we have available and monitor guidance distributed by the CDC and the State of Massachusetts.

Before You Arrive

We ask that you screen yourself at home – Are you feeling sick? Do you have any symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, loss of smell or taste, muscle aches, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, gastrointestinal issues? Have you been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

If you do not pass this screening checklist, we will offer to transfer your tickets to another performance at the Firehouse, however, we cannot refund them.

Please plan to exercise the Print-At-Home option for your tickets to expedite the entrance of all guests into the Theater. If you do not have access to a printer, please call our Box Office at 978-462-7336 and we will mail your tickets to you.

In The Theater

We are taking every precaution to assure your safety. All our performers, stage crew, volunteers and staff have been fully vaccinated.


Beverages and light refreshments will be available. We ask that you remember to take your cups and other trash from your seat when you leave and dispose of them in a trash can in our lobby. Out of consideration for our volunteers, please do not leave trash in your seating area.


We will be thoroughly sanitizing all surfaces in the restrooms, lobby, and in the theater before and after the show,

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us or call us at 978-499-9931. Our Box Office is Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm-5pm but is always open online!
