Merriam Theater

250 South Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19102

The Merriam Theater stands as a monument to Philadelphia's active performing arts culture. Centrally located on the Avenue of the Arts, the Merriam functions as the hub of the College of Performing Arts' School of Music.

Here, performing arts students learn in the same building where legends like John Barrymore, Sir Laurence Olivier and Katharine Hepburn performed.

Despite the Merriam's rich 89-year history, the building has been completely upgraded and equipped with these state-of-the art facilities:

  • Recording studios
  • Practice rooms
  • Piano lab
  • Computer and synthesizer workstation labs
  • Audio-for-video dubbing and editing lab
  • Percussion studios
