The Nashua Performing Arts Center will serve as a beacon attracting visitors to Nashua. 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 Performing Arts Center 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.
Concerts. Plays. Musicals. Children’s performances. All on Main Street. With a projected opening of winter 2021.
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 Performing Arts Center 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.
