Shea Theater Arts Center
Pull off Route 2, cross a Deco bridge over a dramatic sweep of river, with cascading falls and an industrial canal, and enter a charming village of distinctive late 19th century brick architecture. The next thing you notice about the town is the lights of a theatre just up the street...
We are now at a crucial stage in Turners Falls’ evolution and have found ourselves with an incredible and rare opportunity to maximize the use of the town owned Shea Theater to not only embrace its roots as a beacon of performance venues serving artists and audiences in Montague, but to develop The Shea as a bigger part of the artistic community in Franklin County.
The Shea is becoming the CENTERPIECE of what everyone is talking about in regards to the arts and Turners. With a capacity of over 300, it’s positioned to be at the heart of the region's cultural revival.
To learn more about the transformation of The Shea and how YOU can be a part of this exciting community project, please check out out History of the Shea page.
