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.

In addition, to promote cultural opportunities and awareness for the college community and the MetroSouth community, the Fine Arts Dept. produces and promotes a performance series throughout the year that encompasses contemporary and classical music, dance and theatre, including a season of plays and musicals produced by the college-sponsored community theatre, The Massasoit Theatre Company."
