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. Join them for their 90th anniversary with a cabaret and concert series in August, live theatre from The Secret Garden in October, Rock of Ages in February and Prelude to a Kiss in May.  Our annual production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol has become one of the must-dos in the Valley each December.

Civic Theatre is also home to foreign, silent, independent and arthouse cinema. They also host 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.'  Civic Theatre is currently undergoing a capital campaign to restore the beloved 19th Street Theatre.  Become a member and get in the act at
