About the Performing Arts Center

Founded in 2017, the Chappaqua Performing Arts Center was established to provide diverse arts and cultural programming for people throughout Westchester County and the region.

“This beautiful theatre can no longer be the best kept secret in Westchester.” - Frank Shiner
Located in the heart of Chappaqua on the former Reader’s Digest campus, this amazing 425 seat venue was recently saved from demolition and brought back to life through a unique consortium of municipal and private support. The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center was formed by this consortium to program and present a unique blend of local, regional and national arts and cultural opportunities for the town of Chappaqua and its neighbors.

“This beautiful theatre can no longer be the best kept secret in Westchester. As a performer, I found the space to be truly one of a kind. The sightlines are perfect and there is not a bad seat in the house.” – Frank Shiner

“I’ve been in live concert promotion a long time and this theatre ranks as one of the finest I’ve seen!” – Scott Campbell, Soup’s On Entertainment
