Civic Theatre of Allentown


Please note: The Civic Theatre of Allentown is hosting performances virtually through June with plans to open to the public in July. Visit their website for updated schedules.

Civic Theatre of Allentown is many things to Lehigh Valley. It is the stage where professionally-produced theatre, with a community feel, is born.  

Civic Theatre is also home to foreign, silent, independent, and arthouse cinema, as well as a 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.
