Bring your performance to the Publick Playhouse!

The Publick Playhouse is the premiere showcase venue for central Prince George’s County. Our 494-seat theatre has a generous stage that is 30-feet deep with a 42-foot wide proscenium opening.

Both the acoustics and site lines are exceptional from every seat in the house. The Playhouse is also equipped with a 20-foot electric movie screen for films or multimedia presentations.
