The Ware Center - Millersville University

Welcome to The Ware Center – Arts at Millersville University!

The Ware Center is Lancaster’s premier performing arts center. Located on Lancaster’s famous Gallery Row, our mission is to foster creativity, learning, and understanding in our great community.

Since 2011, we have been a hub of cultural activity in our community. Each academic season we present a variety of performing arts events, host free events during the monthly Lancaster First Friday arts celebrations, and curate a host of diverse community events that help our neighbors and visitors to engage in the community and the world.

With its beautiful glass facade and welcoming presence on Prince Street, the facility provides the Lancaster community with state-of-the-art performance venues that are perfect for:
- Music, including Classical, Jazz, Cabaret, Popular, Opera & More
- Art Exhibits
- Cultural Performances
- Dance
- Family Fun Fest events
- Film
- Theatre, Poetry and Lectures

As a premier performing and visual arts venue, The Ware Center features a number of performance spaces, including the state of the art Steinman Hall. With luxury, stadium style seating, this venue ensures comfort and a perfect pitch performance and experience. For a completely different experience, we offer the Club 42 series in our third floor atrium. This unique space, housed entirely under a glass pyramid ceiling, transforms into a club with intimate table seating. Enjoy an eclectic array of touring acts, cabarets or jazz with the option to purchase from a small plate menu and a cash bar.

Wonderful amenities, a great location in the heart of the City, professional staff, and an extensive calendar of events and performances make The Ware Center a popular destination for both leisure and business visitors.
