The Shea Theater Arts Center is committed to providing a safe environment for artists, patrons, guests and staff.

Effective immediately, indoor events at the Shea Theater are only open to fully vaccinated individuals. Any ticket purchased by a non-vaccinated patron or guest not yet comfortable returning to the theater will be refunded without question.

Additionally, the Shea requires that patrons wear masks indoors at all times unless they are eating or drinking concessions.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we reopen as safely as possible.

This policy is subject to change based on Massachusetts Public Health and CDC guidelines as well as local conditions within the Pioneer Valley area.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate uncertain times. Your support means the world to us. The Shea loves you all.

For art's sake,

Linda Tardif, Emma Ayres, and the Board of Directors

Shea Theater Arts Center

71 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA 01076

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.
