Local Back Box Theater
The Actors Studio is an extremely active group of local actors and theater enthusiasts with a strong appreciation for the intimate black box theater experience that closely connects the audience with the stage. The Actors Studio features many well known productions as well as formats that encourage audience participation and engagement. The Greater Newburyport area is fortunate to have access to this exceptional high quality theater experience right here in our local community. Check the Newburyport Events Calendar for upcoming performances.
The Actors Studio offers an exciting venue to experience these top quality productions with a strong following of theater fans from the local community as well as Boston, Seacoast NH and other parts of the North Shore. The theater was originally based in Newburyport but has moved to downtown Amesbury providing enhanced space and amenities, while maintaining the community theater experience. The Actors Studio has retained their corporate office in the Newburyport Tannery building and as an NAC member they collaborate closely with other local arts organizations to produce and deliver productions and participate in community wide cultural events.
Have you ever considered acting? The Actors Studio offers classes designed for people with any level of experience. In fact classes typically include both theater novices and experienced actors embracing the philosophy that there is always opportunity to learn when working with a diverse group of experiences and perspectives.
This black box theater is a true gem and hub of creativity for the North Shore arts community. Tickets may be available for purchase at the door but we suggest purchasing tickets in advance and making a reservation to enjoy a delicious meal at one of the excellent downtown Amesbury restaurants.
