This is a nice playhouse in Caledonia State Park next to the golf course and across Rt. 30 from the pool and campgrounds. This year the concert was Johnny Cash music and was excellent. We also went to a free performance by the kids that attended the acting camp and took our grandson. And yes there is a totem pole... More

Superb job performing Johnny cash's ring of fire. Live music woven throughout cash's bio. So very glad we made a trip out here-stayed across the street at state park-very convenient.

Went to see steel Magnolias staring Melissa Gilbert from screen and stage. What a great performance by ALL the actors. this program was outstanding. This was the first time for my wife and I to attend a show at the Totem Pole Playhouse. If you've never been; it's a must. This is a wonderful summer place to enjoy fantastic shows.... More

What used to be a charming little summer theater off the beaten path has evolved into truly professional venue within reasonable distance to almost everywhere. The shows are selected for audience appeal, but the actors are selected based on absolute professionalism. This year it is a whole new cast in each show. No carry overs. First show started Melissa Gilbert... More

The Totem Pole Playhouse is a gem nestled in the lush woods of Franklin County. Quaint and charming is descriptive of the building construction that blends perfectly in its location. Easy access to the highway and close proximity to the actors affords a wonderful theatrical experience. Varied productions allows plays to fit your preferences. A wonderful night experience awaits you!

If you enjoy small theaters you will love Totem Pole Playhouse. It was founded by Jean Stapleton and her husband. The actors and actresses are very good. The theater sits in the middle of the pines at Caledonia State Park. The theater is air conditioned for the hot summer days. If you like plays you do not want to miss... More

We've seen several productions at Totem Pole and really enjoy the place. It's a great summer stock theater and the prices are very reasonable. The actors and actresses are very good and the history of the theater is something to read about. Now that we're living at Penn National we intend to become season subscribers. If you're in the area,... More

My wife and I saw 'Barnum!' this past weekend, which was one of the optional evening activities for the Pennsylvania Kiwanis Convention. I saw the original cast on Broadway many years ago, and the production featuring Michael Crawford in London, and 'Barnum!' is a tremendously complex show to present, even for a major Broadway house. The Totem Pole did a... More

The 63rd season at the Totem Pole Playhouse promised to bring bigger and better shows. I had not had a problem with previous season shows – it was nice to see some lesser known titles and in the past I had especially enjoyed Suite Surrender, the Hank Williams and Buddy Holly shows, as well as the various Sanders Family plays....

We enjoy very much going to the Totem Pole Playhouse. The prices are reasonable, and the performers are top notch. Since the playhouse is small, there really is not a bad seat in the house. I highly recommend it.
