This was our third visit to the Playhouse. Very nice show with an energenic cast. It made for an enjoyable afternoon at the resort, short walk from our condo and near the Gem and Keystone Tavern.

Small, cute community theater. Nothing fancy, but my wife and I were very entertained with the original, locally written, production "Home Shopping". Great show! Exceeded our expectations and within walking distance of our suite at the Shawnee Inn

We had an enjoyable afternoon of musical theater with The Addams Family today. The local production was well done and showcased several talented performers. The staging was simple but effective.
