ALERT: We are at capacity for the Sunday 4PM and Monday 6PM engagements. Limited seats remain for Sunday 11AM. Walk-in patrons are encouraged, and will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis as capacity allows.  


What can the Merriam Theater be to all Philadelphians?
Join the Kimmel Center in building a vision to reimagine the Merriam Theater. This vision will pay homage to its history, reflect the City of Philadelphia, and secure the Merriam’s place at the heart of an evolving and exciting performing arts campus. The Center wants to engage you in public conversations to bridge together real ways to best incorporate the Merriam into the thriving Kimmel Center Cultural Campus, which currently includes the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, the Merriam Theater, and the Academy of Music on South Broad Street along the Avenue of the Arts.

Be a part of the conversation!
