  • Only bottled water permitted in rehearsal rooms;
  • Clean up after yourself;

Know Before You Go

Platt House rehearsal rooms, cabaret stage, and offices are located in the basement of 3702 Spruce Street, down a short walkway from the Spruce Street retail strip. There is an ADA accessible entrance using an elevator from the Stouffer Commons lobby, located around the corner from our main entrance on Woodland Walk.

Platt 172

Primarily used as a staff office, Platt 172 is in fact not available for reservation – though it is a great spot to eavesdrop on Platt 176. This block of text is a mockup blurb, purely serving for visualization purposes. If you’re looking for a space to move your arms around in, doing so in this cluttered treasure trove may have catastrophic results! Instead, check out Platt 175: a sizable dance studio featuring mirrors, barres, a sprung floor, and sound system.

Highly favored among Penn dancers, Platt 175 is a sizable dance studio featuring mirrors, barres, a sprung floor, and sound system.

Platt 176

Known to frequenters of Platt House, 176 is “the room with the drums.” The smallest of our rehearsal spaces, 176 is intended for individuals and small music ensembles. The room features an upright piano and complete drum set.

Platt 177

Also known as the Class of 1969 Room, this medium-sized music room features a baby grand piano and ample space for small to medium-sized ensembles. 

Platt 179

This large rehearsal room is intended for theatre rehearsals, but also works well for large music ensembles. Platt 179 features some furniture including tables, chairs, and music stands, as well as an upright piano. There are also two large portable mirrors housed in this space. 179 is a favorite of our After School Arts at Penn program.

Platt 180

“The musical theatre room,” as it is called by many Platt House users, Room 180 features mirrors, barres, a sprung floor, sound system, upright piano, and some furniture including tables, chairs, and music stands. This room is named in honor of generous support from Bloomers Comedy.
