Penn State College of Arts and Architecture
Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State

We invite you to support us

You know true creativity when you see it. You feel the dance in your body, the song in your throat, and the emotion in your chest. This pursuit of unstoppable creativity, and the way it connects us, is at the heart of everything we do at the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State. 

Your support is the bridge that brings artists and audiences together. Join the community of supporters who share our vision of connection, culture, creativity, and belonging

You make possible our astounding performances and programs. Whether it’s dance, theatre, music, or other forms of expression, art allows us to transport ourselves, to transcend the everyday, and to transform communities. The performing arts revitalize the human spirit. Your generosity is deeply appreciated, and we are fortunate to count you in our dedicated community of supporters.

We welcome you—including our new membership categories of student and recent graduate—as partners on this journey to extend the Center for the Performing Arts’ creative legacy for years to come.
