The Buckley Performing Arts Center

Buckley Performing Arts Center

"Art is not simply a diversion or amusement, rather, we are convinced that art is necessary for the growth and well-being of our society and civilization."

Making the Arts a Part of the Community

What do 60's icons Arlo Guthrie and Richie Havens, 90's comedy stars Dana Carvey and Paula Poundstone, country music artists Mary Chapin-Carpenter and Bill Monroe, and jazz greats The Dukes of Dixieland all have in common? They, and over a hundred others, have all appeared in Brockton on the stage of the Buckley Performing Arts Center as part of the Live! at Massasoit Performance Series; since 1983, the region's longest running arts series.

A Community Resource

The Buckley Performing Arts Center, named for Senator Anna Buckley, who was instrumental in siting a community college in the City of Brockton, is the theatrical hub of the bustling Fine Arts Building. A resource for the college and the surrounding community, the Fine Arts Building is home to two modern theaters, a state-of-the-art television studio, a radio studio, a painting studio, the Media Center and the college Children's Daycare Center, not to mention classrooms and staff offices. 

Our Mission Statement:

The Buckley Performing Arts Center serves the college and surrounding communities by offering a first-class theater facility for a variety of uses, including theatre for adults and children, concerts, recitals, readings, lectures, meetings and conferences.
