  • A vibrant, active and world-class arts and entertainment destination for the entire North Shore community.
  • Undergoing an amazing transformation to beautifully renovate and restore this historic theater in the heart of downtown Beverly.
  • A catalyst for the cultural life of our community and enhances the economic vitality and the promotional and marketing appeal of the North Shore.
