The Mountain Playhouse has been producing live, professional, Equity theater in the Laurel Highlands since 1939. The theater is a former grist mill which was discovered in Roxbury, Somerset County. It was dismantled log by log and moved to its current site in 1939. The theater opened on June 24, 1939, with a production of "High Tor." The theater is nestled in a beautiful lakeside setting just off Route 30 in Jennerstown, PA.

We saw their recent production which was a British farce and the cast did a superb job, the audience was laughing uproariously throughout and the acting was top flight since this play required lots of action and close timing.

We attended a Sunday afternoon showing of Caught in the Net. I do not believe there would be any bad seats in the theatre. We were in the 7th row. Seats are a little close together, but still sufficient room. The show was very well...More

We made the mistake of sitting in the front row; it was really tooooo close! The acoustics and seating are such that there is no bad seat. We enjoyed the play, "Moon Over the Brewery" very much, it was a good value for the price....More

We laughed, cried, tapped our toes and clapped our hands for the amazing musical Cowgirls presented at the Mountain Playhouse! The theater is inside an old gristmill, compact and cozy, with good acoustics. Easy parking and seating.

We loved the period feel and welcome of the Playhouse. After 15 years in the area, our first time! We'll be back. Great cast, play, and technical. We were entranced, and loved the whole experience...

We had the opportunity to see Deathtrap last night. Very nice presentation of a comedy/thriller. I would be happy to see another production there again.

Formerly an old grist mill, this antiquated building has been repurposed as a theatre since 1939. We receive their mailings and make it a point to see at least one show a year there. Because of the location/weather, this is a seasonal venue. We read...More

Saw, "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change," today with family. Excellent production! The lighting and sound were perfect. Unfortunately it poured, so we missed out on wandering the grounds. A very scenic location. Great day.
