The Theater

The State Theatre in Easton

Welcome to the home of NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet in Easton PA: The State Theatre! Originally opened in 1910 as the Neumeyer Theatre, the venue underwent several name changes before opening as the State Theatre in 1930. The theater once hosted Vaudeville performances and silent films, but the development of talking pictures prompted the need for a larger movie screen as well as new equipment for stereophonic sound, both of which were installed.

The State Theatre began presenting rock concerts during the 1960s and 1970s. Under threats of demolition in the early 1980s, a group of citizens rallied together to raise money for building renovations, which were completed in 1990. Today, the State Theatre hosts musicians, comedians, dance performances, stage productions, and more.
