This year we’re offering two types of memberships — our popular Firehouse Membership (pay once and see everything for free), and our new FIREHOUSE PRIME. Join FIREHOUSE PRIME and get reserved seats, VIP access to special events, and pay only ten bucks for every show you see thru May 31, 2021. Our 27th season includes eight world premiere plays and a diverse range of other projects in our three series —
FIREHOUSE PLAYS, FIREHOUSE FRINGE, and FIREHOUSE STUDIO.
 
At this challenging time, when the future is so uncertain, dates for all productions are fluid. We’ll communicate specific schedules as soon as we can. Whenever possible, productions will be available as both LIVE / socially distant controlled performances at Firehouse and via remote streaming.
 
Now, more than ever, we depend on your membership.
 
Firehouse’s commitment to safe, “socially distant controlled performances” means — among other actions — that we’re reducing our seating capacity. It’s also likely to take some time before people will feel comfortable about going to the theatre again. Joining Firehouse as a member now will help us survive a severe — but temporary — reduction in ticket sales.
 
Now, more than ever, we depend on receptive and adventurous spirits like you.
