Check the listing for some of the BEST Summer Stock in the Catskills. Plan well, the playhouse is a little bit off the beaten path...BUT worth the trip

Tucked away in the woods this theatre is amazing! I have lived close-by for years and just never made it , so glad I did starting last season! We purchased flex tickets. All subscribers get at a discount before 9/15 for the next season!!

Flex tickets give you a choice of 6 performances during the season, you choose matinee on Wed and Sunday or evening performances. We usually purchase extra for evening performances and go to the Cabaret when we do.

The Cabaret performances are very good and the food options are great…the nachos are large, there are wraps and bagels and desserts, all good and reasonable! As a plus, the actors are waiting table & tending bar so you get to talk to them!

The performances are excellent for such a small summer theatre and the musicians are very talented. They work wonders with a small set using sides as well as the main stage. Summer 2012 offers the following: Guys & Dolls; Camelot; The Rocky Horrow Show; West Side Story; Spamalot; Murder Among Friends ; and Barefoot in The Park. There are 2 children's shows each season as well and they are rarely sold out.

During the intermission you can get a beverage at their bar or explore the grounds.
The Theatre is in a wooded area and the grounds have been turned into a beautiful garden to walk about and enjoy the fragence!

We are now regular subscribers!!!

We heard through friends that the Forestburgh Playhouse was a great secret in the woods of Sullivan County. In 2009, we took our children to first see "Hairspray", and we were hooked! This year, we purchased a six-ticket option and saw "Biloxi Blues", "Jekyl and Hyde", and "The Buddy Holly Story". All were absolutely amazing and a wonderful value! My husband and I have been to Broadway in NYC, and these plays/musicals were seriously as good without the long trip into the city or the high ticket prices. The theatre is small and looks a little rough, but the sets and performers are outstanding professionals! On weekend evening performances, there is a cabaret which follows for a $15 per person food/drink minimum. They offer snack and desserts, and the cabaret themes vary with the shows. There are also two children's performances offered in the summer. We give the Forestburgh Playhouse two thumbs up and know that we will see many of these up-and-coming actors and actresses in the national spotlight one day!
