Our community theatre, known today as The Pennsylvania Playhouse, presently located on Illicks Mill Road in the City of Bethlehem, PA, was founded in 1946. Since then, The Playhouse has delivered countless productions to our community and has continued to survive solely on box office revenues.

We are a nonprofit organization, open to everyone, and operated entirely by dedicated volunteers. We strive to deliver our community some of the finest theatre productions and bring people together through the magic of the arts. With 6 shows being brought to our stage each season, we continue to offer something for everyone in our audience.  


Coming this Summer: Big The Musical!
