Join us on Thursday, September 21, from 5:30-7:30 PM to celebrate the opening of two photography exhibitions. This event is open to the public and no RSVP is necessary.

In our second floor Watertown Savings Bank Gallery, follow the four-decade history of Watertown Children's Theatre in 40 Seasons of Love, part of the 40th anniversary celebration of this outstanding youth program.

call for art for the following show, Members Exhibition 2023, has a deadline of October 6. Artists may submit artworks in any medium. A call is also open for artists for our first Holiday Makers Market!

The Briar & Rusty Show | September 23 & 24

This two-night spectacular is filled with hilarious, campy, and sexy tributes to some of the most iconic films of the last century. Combining glamorous drag, steamy burlesque, spellbinding circus, comedy sketches, live music, audience contests, and more, this time-traveling journey into a queer past will have you saying “Play it again, Sam!”

New Rep Theatre | Through October 15

New Rep currently has two spectacular shows in our Black Box Theater. Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking drama, A Raisin in the Sun, is a searing and timeless portrait of a family on Chicago’s South Side, and an American classic.

Diaspora!, a SpeakEasy Stage commission as part of the Boston Project, follows a local writer tracing her lineage to the rise of the civil rights movement and a certain young minister making waves at the Twelfth Baptist Church and Boston University. Check website for individual performance dates.
