Mishler Theatre

Historic Mishler Theatre/Blair County Arts Foundation

In sincere gratitude to the people… who made this playhouse possible and with every wish for its forever grand success… such were the words of Isaac Mishler more than a century ago! The Mishler Theatre stands today not only as a significant historical and architectural landmark , but also as a testament to the commitment of an entire community to preserving and protecting its rich legacy. Rising from the ashes of a devastating fire and escaping a wrecking ball that would have created a parking lot, this “gem” of a playhouse remains at the center of the community’s performing arts. The Mishler Theatre offers area residents and its visitors wonderful theatrical performances, magnificent orchestral concerts, stunning ballets, and outstanding appearances of nationally recognized performing artists. Issac Mishler’s dream of a “perfect” playhouse has been fully realized and has helped shape the cultural landscape of the region.
