Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts

Annenberg Center LogoAs the University of Pennsylvania's home for the performing arts, the Annenberg Center connects diverse audiences with visionary artists and innovative ideas, engaging both the University and the greater Philadelphia community in transformative artistic experiences.


Founded in 1971, the Annenberg Center is one of the nation's foremost urban performing arts centers on a major university campus, serving as a cultural destination in Philadelphia and connecting regional audiences and the University through a broad range of programs in theatre, music and dance. In fulfillment of its mission, the Annenberg Center engages world-renowned and emerging artists who express adventuresome perspectives on contemporary issues and timeless ideas and who further the Annenberg Center's commitment to artistic and intellectual excellence, diversity and education for adult, student and family audiences.

Annual programming includes dramatic touring theatre, jazz, world music, culturally-specific roots programming (including African, Asian, Latin, and Irish work), dance and local Philadelphia artists. For 32 years, the Annenberg Center presented Dance Celebration, one of the nation's top dance series, in partnership with Dance Affiliates. For younger audiences, the Annenberg Center presents school-time matinee programs and the annual Philadelphia Children's Festival, established in 1985 as the first event of its kind in the nation, serving children and families in the region with a range of artistic and interactive experiences.
