About TCAN

historic TCAN firehouse

TCAN provides a cultural center to the MetroWest Boston region, where national and emerging artists present performances, literary events, and art exhibitions in an environment that brings together individuals and families, children and seniors. Classes in music and theatre are held for students of all ages.

TCAN's Firehouse venue defines the ideal performance space for a music concert, a theatre production, lectures, film programs and special functions in the MetroWest area. This historic (c.1875) Summer Street Firehouse building has been carefully restored as a theatre, art gallery and community center with space to accommodate art exhibits and administrative offices.

In the heart of Natick Center Cultural District, the building sits among striking turn-of-the-century architecture and elegant new construction. TCAN is at the crossroads of culture in the Metrowest region - part of a vibrant downtown area that features the Morse Institute Library, the Walnut Hill School for the performing arts and a backdrop of artist studios, dance studios, galleries, fine restaurants and craft boutiques.
