“Good theater; great way to spend a summer evening”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Each summer, the theater arts department of Kent State University stages 3 plays at Porthouse. Most of the actors are graduate students at Kent and a few are seasoned professionals. The theater is located adjacent to Blossom Music Center and is an outdoor facilty with a roof and padded seats. No air conditioning so nearly everyone dresses very casually.

Bring a picnic to enjoy before the show at the many picnic tables. Alcohol permitted.

Most of the productions are very good. This is a great family venue and a good way to introduce children to theater (though ususally the audience consists of older adults). Tickets are 1/2 price for children and college students with ID's.

The venue is handicapped accessible; people in wheelchairs can sit at the top row and because this is a small theater, these locations provide a good view.

“Great Summer Theater”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

A great theater open to the summer night. It's a great drive out through the Cuyahoga Valley from Cleveland. You can enjoy a picnic dinner on the park-like grounds, and then enjoy what is generally quality theater.
