About Us

Mission

The H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University strives to be the center of a myriad of programs designed to enhance the University’s role in service to the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Among its benefits to the region expanded opportunities to participate in a wide range of cultural programming including full-scale Broadway performances, comedians, symphonies, Pop and Rock performances, kid/family shows and internationally-known speakers; to add options for professional training programs, youth programs and senior citizen programs; to attract regional and national business conferences, professional meetings and planning sessions; and to attract additional visitors and guests to the area resulting in a positive impact on the local and regional economy in such areas as hotels, restaurants, specialty shops and other support services.

Vision

The Luhrs Center at Shippensburg University will enhance the University’s programming while serving as an academic and cultural focal point along the Interstate 81 corridor in three states. In addition to serving as an academic resource for the University and its students by supplying space for the music and theatre arts department, the center will offer cultural programming to enrich the quality of life for students and others throughout the region, as well as be an integral part of the University’s on-going camps and conferences program and its outreach programs.
