Our History

Since 1967, the Stone Arch Players of Lewistown, Pa. have been entertaining audiences in central Pennsylvania with a diverse offering of popular and critically-acclaimed theatrical productions. 

Theatre in the Park, the home of the Stone Arch Players for over 30 years.

"Cactus Flower," "See How They Run," "The Odd Couple," "Steel Magnolias," "Deathtrap," "The Boys Next Door," "Bus Stop" and "Nunsense" are among the many comedies, dramas, mysteries and musicals presented by the Stone Arch Players over the years.

Founded as the Mask and Wig Community Theater, the troupe later renamed itself after the Stone Arch Bridge, a local historical landmark which became part of the group's emblem. After moving from a converted theater space in downtown Lewistown to The Theatre in the Park in Derry Township Community Park, we're now celebrating our 30th year in this location!

The Stone Arch Players stage major productions every fall, winter and spring. Eight performances of each show are presented in the 110-seat Theatre-in-the-Park in Derry Township Community Park with ample free parking. Tickets are modestly priced and we welcome group sales.

 

Celebrating our 50th Year!

Come celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the Stone Arch Players! We want to recognize and thank our wonderful patrons and friends who continue to come year after year to see a show — a show that we hope makes them laugh, cry and sit on the edge of their seat in suspense! 

We as a group thank you, our community, for your support, your patronage, and your enjoyment of our work. We thank you for the last 50 years, and we hope you will honor us for the next 50 as we whisper behind the scenes: “Lights up!”
