Shea’s Smith Theatre came from humble beginnings: once operating as a Swiss Chalet restaurant. Since becoming part of Shea’s Performing Arts Center in 2000, it has transformed into a viable theater, hosting Off-Broadway productions, comedians, and collaborative productions with local theatre companies.

 

Currently, Shea’s Smith Theatre has two companies in residence: the O’Connell & Company and Second Generation Theatre, each offering a three-show season in our theater.

Seating Chart

As a 237 seat “black box” theater, Shea’s Smith Theatre is somewhat of a chameleon space, offering ample room for stage productions, rental events, and special occasions.

 

The chart on the right shows our standard production set-up. For shows playing in the Shea’s Smith Theatre, seating is flexible and often is arranged specially to provide the best viewing for individual productions.
