White Plains Performing Arts Center Tours and Activities

White Plains Performing Arts Center
Staging everything from benefit concerts and dance shows to critically acclaimed theatrical productions, the White Plains Performing Arts Center (WPPAC) proves you can find Broadway-quality performances in Westchester County. Enjoy easy train access from Manhattan, and be sure to check out a mainstage act.

The Basics

One of the most celebrated performance spaces in Westchester, WPPAC draws plenty of patrons for its self-produced and professional productions that span genres. The best way to experience WPPAC is to see a live performance. Since many shows have limited runs, buy tickets in advance to ensure you get seats. The center also offers numerous youth acting programs, including one-day workshops—check the WPPAC website for details.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A WPPAC mainstage production, many of which feature actors from Broadway, is a must for theater lovers.
  • Dine before the show in downtown White Plains, at one of several restaurants within walking distance of WPPAC.
  • Theater doors open 30 minutes before the show.

How to Get There
The Metro-North Railroad is your best option for visiting WPPAC, if you don’t have a car. Travel time is about an hour on the Harlem Line, from Grand Central Terminal in New York City to the White Plains station. If you don’t mind some traffic, driving is also a good option. The performing arts center is located off Route 22, on Martine Avenue. Park on level 5 in the municipal parking lot.

When to Get There
Arrive early for a performance, so you have enough time to pick up your tickets at the theater box office. Expect more traffic—and crowding on the train—during peak commuting hours, so add a buffer to your travel time before an evening show. For fewer crowds, opt for a weekday matinee.

Visiting the Bronx Zoo

The Bronx Zoo is a world-renowned New York attraction, and since it’s on the same Metro-North line as WPPAC, you can make a day of it: stop by the zoo in the afternoon, then enjoy an evening performance in White Plains. Don’t miss the giant cats in the African Plains exhibit, and the colorful insects in the Bug Carousel. Save time by hopping aboard the Zoo Shuttle, which transports visitors around the park.
