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.

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.
