“Intimate and nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

This is a small little theatre in Natick Center. It's as expected for a town concert hall. Intimate and small but clean and pleasant. I took my son here for a children's concert and it was the perfect venue. Will definitely be back.

TCAN is the heart of Natick's cultural center! There is something for everyone at TCAN..great venue, great programs for all ages, just fun, fun, fun! They are also very generous to the community working with schools, a program called "A Child in Every Seat", always special things going on....inexpensive to become a member.....you could do something different almost every week of the year...come & join our town & enjoy everything this gem has to offer!

“A Gem for All Who Love Music and Theater!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Community fellowship created the renovated forestation in Natick transforming it into the Center for the Arts, which features classical music, rock, blues, folk and jazz, as well as music and theater for children, art and photography exhibitions, and comedy and theater for adults. There is truly an event for every artistic and entertainment taste and the sound system works! It is a comfortable and inviting community space--come share in the spirit!
