Music Genres
The venue is suited to acoustic performances, AAA/variety styles of music, i.e., pop, acoustic rock, ambient, folk, jazz, blues. Solo performers, duos, or 3-piece combos are best suited for the stage (sorry, no drum kits). Live musicians (as opposed to pre-recorded tracks) are required for performances.


Located at 56 E. Butler Pike in Ambler, PA, Act II Playhouse is across the street from the former Ambler Cabaret, a once popular national touring stop for bands, artists, and top regional acts. Act II Playhouse is only two blocks from the Septa R-5 Line, with trains running every 30 minutes through 11:30 PM to Philadelphia's Suburban, Market East, and 30th Street Stations.
