Year after year, audiences worldwide keep coming back for more of this pulse-pounding electrifying show. As the Boston Globe says, “If you haven’t seen STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone and share the pleasure!” STOMP. See what all the noise is about.

Our New Season:  Be a Part of It!
The 2015-2016 Season of Professional Performances

We are excited to present the 2015-2016 season for the Forest Hills Fine Arts
Center – our 12th annual season since opening in the Spring of 2004. This year
we are showcasing a 4-show season line-up that offers a variety of entertainment
throughout the year. We felt it was important to try something different this year
with the number of shows we offer as a package, while still providing a high-quality
show experience for our patrons.

As always, we want to thank our season partners, sponsors, advertisers,
community members, families, students, staff, volunteers, and arts patrons that
have continued to support us throughout the years. We couldn’t do it without you!

It’s going to be an incredible season and a wonderful 12th year of operations
and we are looking forward to sharing it with you!
