It used to be in an old fire station, now renovated into something much nicer. Helps to bring first-class talent to Natick, with smaller and solo acts. Lots of good programming for children as well. Get on their email list to get regular updates.

Just saw their wonderful production of "They're Playing Our Song". Great performance at a great small theatre at a great location at a great price. Looking forward to their next set of shows in early November.

TCAN resides in a really charming former fire station. They provide an amazing amount of live entertainment, including music, plays, and movies. The prices are very reasonable, and the amount and quality of entertainment is amazing.

and even if you don't want it, they got it and you'll like it. Such as eclectic lineup of performances for folks of all ages (kids shows, old timer events, etc). Nice space, friendly ushers and staff, and a great sound system.

We've been to multiple performances at TCAN, and have enjoyed every one. The quality is surprising for a local venue. Free on street parking. Small, intimate theater. What more could you ask?

We just saw George Winston play a solo piano concert; we have been several other times for a play, other live performances. A renovated firehouse with a very manageable sized audience-very intimate. There are no bad seats!

Went to see Asleep at the Wheel with friends. The Texas swing band was great, however, the venue which was close and intimate with great acoustics contributed greatly to our enjoyment. TCAN is located in an old firehouse with lots of character. We will certainly...More
