Allens Lane Theater

For over 67 years, Allens Lane Theater has produced purposeful, challenging, and unique theater experiences centered around contemporary human issues which reflect the diversity and complexity of our community.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the center is offering a number of it's programs virtually as well as in-person (if possible).  Should in-person programming be offered, please note that the center will adhere to all CDC Guidelines like limited seating, social distancing, mask wearing and other safety measures in order to keep our audiences, artists and staff as safe as possible.



For our 2020-21 Season, Allens Lane Theater has made some big changes in store.  Aside from our main-stage plays, we've created three new programs that will compliment our theatrical productions and engage our community members in a way we've not done before.  Although our in-person audience sizes will be limited, we will be streaming all our new events (Zoom) so that everyone will have a chance to participate.

Main-stage Plays Allens Lane will still present four main-stage plays during our season with the same high-quality productions that our season subscribers and ticket holders have come to expect.

Community Voices: This will be a series of talks by invited people within our community who are making a difference.  From Cultural Leaders to business owners, we will be presenting a wide variety of speakers that will help our community better understand who is in it and what they are doing.  Speakers will give a talk about their work followed by a Q&A with audience members (in person and virtual).

Readers Theater:  We have invited a number of writers and directors along with actors from the Philadelphia region to give readings of new plays, plays for consideration for future productions and plays that we believe deserve a second look.

Children's Theater: Allens Lane Theater will be hosting several fun, interactive plays and fairy tales specifically for the children in our community to help get them engaged in the arts and to introduce them to the wonderful world of theater.
