Pennsylvania Theatres
PA Dutch Country & Laurel Highlands Area

Enjoy a visit to one of the Pennsylvania theatres in the Dutch Country & Laurel Highlands areas of the state on a vacation to the area.

Enjoy performances of community theatre groups, regional theater and also children’s productions and plays.

We found the Totem Pole theater really nice, especially the outside area with the pole.

It was a great theatre, and the outside surroundings were very peaceful and serene to us.

Definitely try and catch a show at any of these Pennsylvania theatres when you come to Pennsylvania.
