Maryland Theatre Performing Arts Center

The Maryland Theatre Association, Inc. is currently constructing a 30,000 square foot expansion which will restore The Theatre to its original footprint prior to the fire which destroyed the front of the building in the early 1970’s.

The expansion will replace a current outdoor courtyard and will consist of 5 floors total in order to transform The Maryland Theatre, the crown jewel of Hagerstown’s A&E District into a Performing Arts Complex. Construction will take place in 3 phases: phase 1: the auditorium will be closed July-September 2018 during alley, utility and new emergency egress work completion. Phase 2: the auditorium will be fully operational with egress via the Middletown Valley Bank Walkway (see signage upon arrival) October 2018-June 2019. Phase 3: the auditorium will be closed July-September 2019 with a ribbon cutting planned for October 2019.  Visit for more information.
