Centre Stage 2022-23 season on sale July 11

Penn State Centre Stage will produce six shows during the 2022-23 season. Tickets go on sale July 11.

The season kicks off with a Sneak Preview Celebration, from 5:30 to 8 p.m, Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the Playhouse Theatre and Olsan-Stone Terrace. Attendees can meet the directors, designers, and students who will be producing the upcoming shows; catch snippets from the season; and purchase tickets to the productions. Sneak Preview tickets are $45.

“Often when I speak to our audience and community supporters I hear this consistent idea–that while Penn State Centre Stage is a training ground for emerging theatre artists, the quality of the work they see on our stages rivals any they have seen on other stages, including Broadway. They recognize that what we do is unique, and appreciate the work of all our artists,” said Rick Lombardo, producing artistic director of Centre Stage and director of the School of Theatre.
