Keswick Theatre History

The Keswick Theatre is one of the most popular and well-known theaters in the entire Philadelphia area, and it has been a go-to venue in the city of Glenside ever since opening in 1928. The venue first opened on Christmas night in 1928, beginning its long and prosperous tenure on the performing arts scene. The Keswick went on hiatus for a brief time in the mid-1980s, closing its doors in 1985 but reopening in 1988 and still functioning under its original moniker. The theater was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1983, giving it even more clout and helping to bring big-name artists to the venue on a regular basis.

Artists that have peppered the lineup at the Keswick Theatre recently include India. Arie, Cedric the Entertainer, Rick Springfield, Transatlantic, Josh Ritter, Los Lonely Boys, Keb Mo and Will Downing, and there are several other artists waiting in the wings. With that type of superstar-level talent coming to the stage on a regular basis, Keswick Theatre remains one of the go-to places for live entertainment around the City of Brotherly Love, and that doesn't seem likely to change any time in the near future.
