Nestled In a serene forested area between Chambersburg and Gettysburg, is a gem called the Totem Pole Playhouse. We had the pleasure of watching Patsy Cline and Hank Williams, Sr. Tribute Artists who captured the essence of both individuals. The acoustics were excellent as well as the band supporting these artists. Travellers in this area should consider attending a performance... More

Went to see off Broadway show of Grease. This was a wonderful show. The Totem Pole theatre is the very best place to go for a stay production. A must see while in this area.

This is a great summer theater. I try to get at least two plays in each summer. They are open May thru August.

A nice little theatre that fits in perfectly with its deep woods location. Located right off Rt. 30 in Caledonia State Park, the theatre has a campground feel yet a theatre feel. Tickets are fair priced and views are perfect.

Our last visit was in May 2013. At that time there were obvious problems at Totem Pole and our review mentioned those. Welcome back, Totem Pole! Gone are the ticket add-ons that nearly doubled the cited ticket price. Their new director, Rowan Joseph, has made many changes. Productions have been excellent ("Shenandoah" was wonderful). Fresh talent has been the best... More

For area visitors, there's almost always seats available for a show and it will be a night (or afternoon) you will enjoy. Get info online (http://totempoleplayhouse.org/), check the shows, get tickets. Grab a bite to eat at Giacomo's (a BYOB eatery) (http://giacomoitalianrestaurant.weebly.com/) on the way to the playhouse. You won't regret it. Although we pick and chose what we go... More

Was treated to a play by a fellow business. Play was astonishing. The actors were great and the music as well. Worth taking an evening from a busy day for some great entertainment

We have been going to the Totem Pole for 8 years. This year was the best. I believe it was totally due to Rowan Joseph the new Producing Artistic Director. If you missed going this year, please do go next season. You will be surprised with the changes and the quality of the talent.

We attend this theater occasionally and the Comedy "the Foreigner" was very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable and all the seating is actually pretty good. The actors were very talented and the show was worth the money spent. this is a nice break fro other venues we attend. The price is a little high but for a... More

Please do not let the prices deter you from going here! You won't regret it and the money goes toward a good cause. Not to mention that Totem Pole gives a lot back to the local community. I would not recommend taking young children (<10), as they may not be at an age where they can appreciate the performance. I've... More
