Civic Theatre of Allentown
Civic Theatre of Allentown is many things to the Lehigh Valley. It is the stage where professionally-produced theatre with a community feel is born; recent productions of RENT, Tuesdays With Morrie and Beauty and the Beast have been seen by tens of thousands of patrons. Our annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary, has become one of the must-dos in the Valley each December.
Civic Theatre is also the Valley’s only year-round home for foreign, independent and arthouse cinema. Critically-acclaimed films like There Will Be Blood, An Education and A Single Man were screened here before anywhere else in the region.
Finally, we are home to the Lehigh Valley’s premier children’s theatre school. Civic Theatre School has a 50+ year tradition of fostering a love of live theatre in the Valley’s youth – current Hollywood star, Amanda Seyfried, recently said in an interview that Civic was where her ‘love of acting flourished.’
