The Arsenal Center for the Arts occupies 30,000 square feet of space on three floors. It houses two theatres, classrooms and workshop spaces, artist studios, gallery and exhibit space, rehearsal rooms, and informal gathering places. Its stunning and unique architectural design is ideally suited to support its mission of an inter-disciplinary arts center. This mix of interior venues provides a home for three resident companies (New Repertory Theatre, Watertown Children’s Theatre, The Quilters’ Connection) and regular performing troupes such as Improv Jones. The Center also offers its own programming consisting of art exhibits, classes and workshops for adults and children, concerts and other staged events, plus literary presentations and other discussion opportunities
