Appell Center for the Performing Arts


Inspire, educate and entertain through professional performing arts experiences that bring together York County’s diverse voices.

Community Commitment

As a public gathering place for the brilliantly diverse community, we at the Appell Center see it as our top priority to ensure that all of our patrons, performers, staff and guests feel welcome – regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, race, religion or sexual orientation. The performing arts are designed to unite everyone in shared experiences and expand all of our horizons. Filling our house with those of diverse backgrounds and perspectives makes our entire organization stronger. When Louis Appell Jr. set out to revive the Strand and Capitol Theatres back in the 1970’s, his vision was two-fold:

1. To design theatres so beautiful that every person who walked through the doors felt they were about to experience something special.

2. To build accessible, inclusive theatres that every single member of the community could enjoy.
