The Erie Playhouse engages, educates, and entertains patrons and volunteers with theatrical productions ranging from classical to contemporary; we train the next generation of artists and arts advocates; we enrich the Erie Community by providing fun and meaningful educational performing arts programs that serve the entire community regardless of background or socio-economic status. We celebrate the power of the performing arts to impact personal and community growth.
Programs and Services
Your Erie Gives Day donation supports the Playhouse's efforts to reopen our theatre after our doors being closed over well over a year, since March 13, 2020. Despite the suspension of live performances on our stage, the Playhouse has continued to grow educational initiatives throughout the county, such as PLAYtime, an arts & literacy program that uses the Imagination Library book to promote early childhood literacy in 115 classrooms in the Erie School District & early learning centers throughout Erie County. Your donation also supports scholarships for our various camps & classes, to provide opportunities for children who would not other have the resources to find their performing arts outlet.
