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. « less

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!!

I am back visiting friends in the area. I would have loved to be here in the fall, but at this point I am missing donut and cider time, but enjoyed the play "Trying". Surprisingly the theater was not full of people...so I wished I could have moved to another table and not been so squished with 3 other people.... More

Last night we saw Leading Ladies and enjoyed it. The show wasn't sold out, but hopefully word of mouth will spread that this was a good show. Acting was good and the audience laughed a lot. The end was a bit self-indulgent, long and drawn out. And the chairs are very uncomfortable.
