Advance sale single tickets are available for Heeere’s Tony which starts streaming May 18.

As we move forward here in Ambler, we are exploring every opportunity to continue to bring you the shows that you love and that we love to bring to the stage. For now, that means that we are “going virtual” with our full season. we are streaming to audiences via a new platform we are calling the ACT II Virtual Theatre that audiences are loving and sharing with remote family and friends. We are very excited to learn, along with you, what this could mean as we also plan on when we can once again all enjoy the live experience – in-person at the Playhouse – that is at the heart of our theatre family.

All of us at the Playhouse continue to monitor information available from Ambler Borough, Montgomery County, state and federal officials, and public health organizations, and may need to adapt or make other changes as new information becomes available. 

We are believers in ‘the show must go on.’ We know that many in our audience have made extensive plans (sometimes for months in advance) to come to the theatre – often as an event with family or friends – and we don’t want to disappoint you. We are planning carefully and will continue to keep you informed. 

Please, continue to be safe and stay in touch to tell us how you are doing.  

The Act II Playhouse family.
