About Us


The 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 by offering a wide range of cultural programming that includes full-scale Broadway performances, comedians, symphonies, Pop and Rock performances, kid/family shows and internationally known speakers. The Center is home to professional training programs, youth programs and senior citizen programs; attracting regional and national business conferences, professional meetings and planning sessions; and attracts many additional visitors and guests to the area resulting in a positive impact on the local Downtown Shippensburg and regional economy.


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.



The Luhrs Center Circle of Friends helps make all that we do possible. This membership program enables us to nurture an arts-oriented lifestyle in the Cumblerand Valley, and invest in the future of the arts through outreach to students of all ages.
