Based on the original Broadway production and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.  It features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.  The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress.

Hot Club Jazz, or Gypsy Jazz, is a blend of traditional Roma music and swing jazz that was pioneered by the legendary Hot Club of France Quintet, which was led by guitarist Django Reinhardt.
Django was attempting to do his own version of American Hot Jazz, as played by stars like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. The Hot Club of France Quintet used acoustic guitars, bass and violin, rather than horns and drums. Django added some French and Gypsy flavor and created a blend of music that is quite popular and accessible.

The Miller Center for the Arts, located on the campus of Reading Area Community College, has become an anchor in the city of Reading's cultural landscape. Our 509-seat theatre offers quality programming for all ages and interests. Whether you would like to see modern dance, improve comedy or a children's show, the Miller Center has something for everyone.

Some of the more prominent acts that have appeared at the Miller Center include David Sedaris, Judy Collins, New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players, Phildanco and the Flying Karamazov Brothers. Please view our full list of shows for more details on the current season.

Along with performances, the Miller Center also hosts community events and is available for rental. For more information on how we can accommodate your event, please contact us.


Thousands of people each year participate in and attend Miller Center programs.  Visiting artists from across the country and around the world bring meaningful experiences to underserved populations including at-risk and economically compromised youth and families, charitable organizations and local arts partners.  Contributions help underwrite these activities and support our operations, but the COVID19 pandemic has doubly impacted the arts and culture sector - the Miller Center included. Your contribution at this time is particularly crucial.
