Erie Playhouse

The stars shine bright over the Erie Playhouse, one of the oldest and largest community theatres in the nation. Recognized as one of the 10 best community theatres in national competition, it remains at the forefront of the arts not only in Northwest Pennsylvania, but the entire state.

With a dedicated staff of 12 full-time professionals and literally hundreds of volunteers, the Erie Playhouse boasts a spectacular season of provocative and diverse Mainstage plays and musicals, as well as an engaging roster of musicals for the young theatre-goer as part of their vital Youtheatre program. Add to that one-of-a-kind concerts and captivating special events. We invite you to join us for our 2015-2016 season filled with "memorable characters" and "memorable performances."
