We Have Great Partners
The Gallery at Villageworks, West Acton
Many Fugitive Productions’ events take place in The Gallery at Villageworks. Located 20 miles west of Boston and Cambridge in West Acton Village, Villageworks is a growing community of independent retail, dining, wellness, learning, nonprofit, and professional businesses. It is organized around public lawns and courtyards, shared meeting spaces, and The Gallery, an intimate solar-powered event venue. It is served by on-street, off-street, and covered garage parking (view parking map) and has ADA elevator access. There’s plenty of bike parking for those who prefer to pedal. In the words of its creator and master planner, Villageworks “is a place to generate ideas, relationships, and energy!” True West Brewery and Acton Coffeehouse are both located in the building. True West offers 15% off food in the brewery on the days of our events to Fugitive patrons who order tickets online. And Acton Coffeehouse provide beverages and snacks for our Fugitive Stories events.
Amazing Things Arts Center, Framingham
Located in downtown Framingham, Amazing Things Arts Center brings together a diverse community of artists, arts supporters, and arts appreciators of all ages, cultures, and interests “through the transformational power of rich and varied art forms that provide a nurturing environment in which to meet, understand and accept each other.” Simply put, they create community through the arts! Their 100-seat performance space is intimate and inviting. They serve light snacks along with wine and Jack’s Abby beer. There’s plenty of free parking behind the venue as well as overflow parking across the street. We hosted a couple of wonderful storytelling events last spring and are excited to be back, offering a four-event series this fall.
Kickstand Café, Arlington
Kickstand Café in Arlington center is our newest location. Our summer 2017 Fugitive Stories series was very well received and we’re thrilled to be returning this fall for a three-event series. Kickstand is the definition of a community gathering place. Their 100-plus-seat room is just plain friendly, as is their staff. The room is filled to capacity with mismatched, comfortable wooden chairs and tables. They serve great hot and cold beverages and have a fun, affordable menu of “comfort” foods. And they serve all their yummy stuff to our patrons before the show and at the break. There’s a good-sized parking lot in front of the building and street parking is both free and available on weekday evenings. For those of you in Arlington, it’s a nice destination for strolling or pedalling as it is just feet away from the rail trail.
