The Mountain Playhouse is a nonprofit theater creating high-quality live productions in the very rural, but scenic Laurel Highlands. Since opening in 1939, the theater itself has become an iconic tourist attraction, as the building is a restored 1805 gristmill located in a gorgeous lakeside setting.
A few years ago, we braved a financial crisis that threatened our very existence. However; we did not let the curtain fall. Instead, we persevered and emerged with a sustainable budget and a dynamic season. The quality of our plays and the talent of our NY- based professional actors was never compromised.
Ticket sales cover only 65% of our production costs and overhead expenses. Therefore, we must rely on the generosity of donors and sponsors to sustain the theater and keep our budget intact.
The Mountain Playhouse has all of the elements of a successful cultural attraction:
We are missing only one key element: Your Support! Support from businesses and individuals such as yourself, allows us to continue to raise the curtain and fill the seats.
With your support, we will not only survive, but thrive and grow as we enter our 77th year.
