We have season tickets for Porthouse. 3 plays a summer. We take a picnic dinner and eat there before each play. We love it!

This theatre is a hidden gem in northeast Ohio. Tucked away on the beautiful grounds of Blossom, this outdoor, covered theater is a great way to enjoy the arts and the summer. The casual atmosphere allows picnicking and bringing your own beverage of choice. There are picnic tables, and plenty of grass for before- show get togethers. There is a... More

I've been going to shows here since 1995. Most shows are amazing and solid, but once in a while, not so much. Ticket prices are more than any other local theatre ($37) so my expectations are higher. With that being said, the theatre itself and the location (unless you're battling Blossom traffic -- plan accordingly!) are unbeatable. The weather, sometimes... More

In the summer Kent State University puts on a different play in June, July and August at the Porthouse Theatre in the open air amphitheater. The plays are excellently done and the venue is large enough to attract excellent talent yet small enough to have excellent seating. My wife and I have been and are season ticket holders. The cost...

The actors and actresses put on a great performance. We enjoyed the show very much. The Porthouse Theatre is ideal spot for family and friends to having a picnic meal and to enjoy a wonderful musical

My husband and I have purchased season tickets (3 plays) for 3 years in a row. It's become a tradition for us -- a picnic before the play on one of their many picnic tables and then a play. It's open air but you're covered. Some of the best plays have been when it starts to rain outside. It's absolutely... More

Porthouse Theater has a partnership with Kent State University and produces really good open air theater shows during the summer months. Our favorite was "The Importance of Being Earnest", which we took our younger kids to see and we all loved it! Looking forward to 2014's schedule and a return to al fresco theater!!

Saw a performance of Fiddler on the Roof which was very well done, good cast and music. Very professional and great atmosphere. This was my first visit and I was very pleasantly surprised. Will definitely plan to see a performance next summer.
