our history

The District Theatre carries on a proud tradition of live theatre on Mass Ave and as an anchor for the arts in the Mass Ave Cultural District. With two stages and a visual arts gallery the theatre’s mission is to preserve the bold, status quo-challenging, and fearlessly diverse history of the original Theatre on the Square. In furtherance of that mission, The District Theatre has adopted a strategic focus of helping resource and incubate new professional resident equity theatre companies, beginning with a Black resident professional equity company.

our mission

The District Theater enriches and strengthens our community by presenting, supporting, and amplifying the voices of performing artists, particularly those who represent the diversity of human experience.
