The Pocono Mountains may be known for its stunning natural beauty, but one of the best things to do in the Poconos is catch a live theater performance. The Shawnee Playhouse is a favorite go-to spot for theater for vacationers and residents alike in this beautiful Pennsylvania region. If you are looking for things to do in the Poconos during your stay at Skytop Lodge, why not check out one of these upcoming shows?
Running through mid-September, this fun musical is an audience favorite. The show features over 30 classic country songs that keep you singing along and bopping all the way through. This uplifting story of three country girls who follow their dreams will be sure to delight, as you laugh and cheer to the very end.
A peak into the dysfunctional, yet familiar DeCarlo family provides a hysterical reflection on love, family, and addiction. Dotty DeCarlo’s addiction, as hinted in the title, is home shopping. But as the show progresses, we discover that Dotty is not the only family member struggling with addiction. Whether it is an addiction to pills or something a bit more risqué, every member of the DeCarlo family struggles with overcoming unhealthy habits they rely on to get through life’s problems.
Although Shakespeare may be best known for his tragedies, he has also written some very funny plays. The Comedy of Errors is a farcical, slapstick, and chock-full of wordplay and puns. In this show, two sets of identical twins, who were separated at birth, encounter one another resulting in a series of absurd mishaps. Kick back, laugh out loud and enjoy a Shakespeare play as you’ve never seen it before.
