Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The Cider Mill is a local festive treat not to be missed. The donuts, cider, candy apples, and seasonal produce are of excellent variety, although the management could use a course on leadership.

The Cider mill Playhouse offers an excellent evening of entertainment in a lovely theater setting. There is not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are very good. I have been to many plays at the Cider Mill and enjoyed every one of them. My absolute favorite is their unique, timeless Christmas Carol. I have never seen a show where the props and sets were so economically and creatively incorporated for scene and costume change. Well done!

This place opens in the fall for several months. They sell fresh baked pies, doughnuts, and fresh picked apples. They make their own cider right there in the back and you can take a tour to watch them do it. They have the entire place laid out with candy apples, the big cookies. They sell cheeses and jams. As weeks go onward, they sell flowers and pumpkins and gourds. In the winter they hold plays with or without dinner. You have to go.

Each opportunity I have been able to attend the playhouse I have been transported to a place far from the triple cities! The talent and the productions are first class and always makes me want more. The programs are always entertaining and affordable! Looking forward to the next time A Christmas Carol is presented since it has been a favorite!

Very colourful outside the cider mill with all the beautiful autumn flowers and orange and white pumpkins and squashes on display.

The apple cider is the best I have tasted and the maple walnut donuts are equally good.

It is a short season for the cider so we usually make the most of it and visit here several times before it closes.
