Celebrity Series debuts at the beautiful new Boston Arts Academy Theater in the Fenway/Kenmore neighborhood in 2024/25!

Full of light and creative energy, with upper floors that overlook Fenway Park, the brand-new Boston Arts Academy is an investment in the talent, vision, and creativity of Boston’s performing arts students. The school is a full-inclusion public high school for the visual and performing arts, with students in Grades 9-12. It is a joint project of the Professional Arts Consortium, Inc., and the Boston Public Schools. Boston Arts Academy serves as a laboratory and a beacon for artistic and academic innovation, preparing a diverse community of aspiring artist scholars to be successful in their college or professional careers and to be engaged members of a democratic society.

The campus, an energy-efficient community hub that embodies BPS’ Green New Deal commitments, is home to a beautifully appointed 475-seat theater with outstanding in-house light and sound. Our already substantive partnership with the Boston Arts Academy community deepens when we present in the venue: students will shadow performers, production artists, and theater technicians when tap dance innovator Caleb Teicher and brilliant pianist Conrad Tao present their collaboration, Counterpoint, this winter.

Boston Arts Academy is located on Ipswich Street directly next to Fenway Park, with easy access from the Kenmore Green Line T Stop and the Fenway Green Line T Stop. We strongly encourage patrons to consider public transportation when attending these performances.
