The Weis Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,200 seat performance hall that is both architecturally striking and acoustically exceptional.

The 2018-19 season at the Weis Center once again includes nearly 40 professional performances spanning a dozen genres. We truly have something for everyone and every age. Thanks to our generous sponsors and foundation partners, ten performances are free.

For more than thirty years, we have presented artists who are committed to doing their very best work for our University and Central Pennsylvania audiences. In turn, we inspire our patrons to be actively engaged in the performance as it unfolds on stage. View our archive of past performances.

Once again, the Weis Center will bring artists from around the globe and across the United States. View 2018-19 season here.
