Nashua Center for the Arts

The Nashua Center for the Arts will serve as a beacon attracting residents and visitors alike. Located in the heart of Nashua’s Main Street, an important arts and cultural corridor with wonderful amenities including restaurants and shops for patrons, the Center for the Arts will transform the former Alec’s Shoes, creating a 750-seat theater in its place.

When complete, Nashua will have nationally touring musical performances and theatre right in its downtown. And it will serve as a premier venue for both corporate and family events.

Concerts. Plays. Musicals. Children’s performances. Events. All on Main Street. With a projected opening of Fall 2022. 

The city is alive with creativity, arts, and music.

The arts and culture scene in Nashua is humming. The Peacock Players and Actorsingers. Nightlife live music venues. Symphony NH. Public art. Nashua Chamber Orchestra. The annual ArtWalk. The International Sculpture Symposium. Greeley Park Art Show. ARTVentures. Nashua Public Library programs.

Now, the Nashua Center for the Arts will amplify what is already here. Visible. Vivid. Vibrant. The Performing Arts Center will attract audiences to Nashua, entice residents to our downtown core, and enhance Nashua’s standing as the creative community within the region.


Nashua's Creative Economy

Nashua has more public art than any other city in our state. NH Chronicle has called Nashua the “arts hub of New Hampshire.” In late 2017, the NH State Council on the Arts awarded Nashua its Creative Community award, calling the city “one of New Hampshire’s premier destinations for the arts.

Lasting Economic Impact

Market and feasibility studies demonstrate that there is an audience ready to support and sustain the Nashua Center for the Arts. Now you have the opportunity to be a part of its creation. The time is right to invest in the creation of the Nashua Center for the Arts.


The arts create more than you think...

"The opportunity of a Performing Arts Center is within our grasp and promises to yield benefits – economic, cultural, social, and educational – for generations to come.”
