Upper Darby Performing Arts center brings the magic of live performance at the lowest possible prices to over 60,000 audience members annually.
Our Fall through Spring season, funded by Upper Darby School District, offers professional shows including family shows (Golden Dragon Acrobats, magic shows), children’s shows (TheaterworksUSA), ballet productions (Pennsylvania Ballet), classical music (Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra), national and international artists (The Irish Tenors; oldies, pop and R&B acts), holiday shows (annual PA Academy of Ballet’s The Nutracker and Upper Darby Shooting Stars Holiday Spectacular) and the Upper Darby High School fall play and spring musical productions.
UDPAC is also home to the nationally recognized Upper Darby Summer Stage, celebrating its 45th season in 2020 and funded by Upper Darby Township. Summer Stage delights over 35,000 audience members each summer with six Children’s Theater shows and its broadway-quality mainstage production. Over 750 participants from ages 10 to 28 take part in the various Summer Stage theater programs.
Audience members travel from all areas of the Delaware Valley – from Chester, Bucks, Montgomery and Delaware Counties, as well as Philadelphia and New Jersey – for our family-friendly performances.
