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

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
