Welcome to Arlington Friends of the Drama!
Arlington Friends of the Drama is a community-based performing arts organization whose mission is to enrich Arlington, Massachusetts and the surrounding towns by creating and presenting an annual season of the highest possible quality theatrical productions, including classics, musicals, dramas, comedies, and special events.
At AFD, all interested in creating theatre--actors, singers, musicians, stage carpenters, designers, production staff, students interested in learning more, and newcomers who are looking to experience their first show--are welcomed, supported, and mentored in our vibrant, inclusive community.
Founded in 1923, AFD Theatre is one of the oldest community theaters in the country. Our season runs from fall to spring. AFD Theatre is located at 22 Academy Street in the heart of Arlington Center, MA. Experience the joy of seeing and creating live theatre at AFD!
