In the early 1970s, Binghamton University professor and soon to be theater department chairman, Dr. John Bielenberg sought to expand the theater department's available venues to an off-campus site.Dr. Bielenberg and his colleagues found the Cider Mill. It had been in the Ciotoli family since the 1940s, and was a popular seasonal attraction for lovers of fresh apples, cider and donuts. The warehouse side of the Cider Mill was just what they were looking for.In 1991, when it became necessary for the University to give up the playhouse, it was restarted as an independent non-profit by Tom Kremer, Craig Saeger and Barbara Wolfe. They were supported over the years by dedicated Board Members, a super-hardworking group of staff members, the Ciotoli family and the devotion of the patrons, donors and volunteers.In all, the last 38 years have brought more than 270 dramas, comedies and musicals, and more than 5,000 performances to the Playhouse stage.

While visiting the Binghamton NY area we made a side trip to the Cider Mill. What great fun. First we watched them making donuts. Then we got to see the whole process of making apple cider, from the mashing of the apples to the sampling of the delicious cider. Of course we could not leave without buying a couple of... More

Amazed every time we go our proud we are to have this Playhouse in town. The play was awesome, the actors were great. The younger actors did a fabulous job too. The place has new tables which make it much easier to navigate around without falling off the risers. Nice job!

Nice place to view plays. Quaint atmosphere in an actual Cider Mill! Nice setting with terraced areas with small tables and offerings of food and drink to consume while watching the show. All seats have good views of stage. Quality of shows is professional using local and other talent.

This is always one of our favorite fall traditional spots to check out. You can get a tour of how the donuts are made and sample cider. I don't think the prices are reasonable, but it's worth tasting a hot plain donut. No where else compares it it.

I love the Cider Mill. We look forward to the "cider season" every year and buy a jug every week. It's the best cider you'll ever taste!!
