Nittany Theatre Logo

Fresh. Bold. Daring.

A new curtain is rising in Happy Valley. In true Town & Gown spirit, we are melding the best of local and Penn State talents to offer professional summer stock theatre, here in the heart of Centre County.

Blending the traditional with cutting edge theatre technology, we have outfitted Nittany Theatre at The Barn with state-of-the-art LED lighting and Broadway quality sound; all on a newly configured stage area that accommodates larger sets for more action. But don’t worry, we’ve kept the intimacy and charm that has captured the hearts of audiences for decades. To top that, for your comfort, all our seats have been reupholstered. We’ve even added a premium section of plush seats, reclaimed from the recently demolished Garman Opera House in Bellefonte! Each seat lovingly restored!

Sounds pretty good, huh? Come see for yourself. We’ve got six fresh, bold & daring shows that will keep you entertained all summer long.

Tickets are now available online!
