About

The 12th oldest theatre in the nation, the award-winning Erie Playhouse was founded over 100 years ago with a focus on performing quality live theatre for the Erie community. Our mission has expanded over the years, adding community outreach and arts education as a top priority.

Since 1983, the Erie Playhouse has been at its current address 13 West 10th Street, the home of the former Strand Theatre, which was built as a movie house in 1947. The 12,000+ square foot theatre has seating for 424 plus handicapped accessible seating and restroom facilities. The proscenium style stage is perfectly suited to the theatre’s busy schedule.
