And You Thought Timeshare Owners Preferred Golf…

The play’s the thing for Pocono Mountain timeshare owners

The Shawnee Playhouse Theater has been an entertainment staple for vacationers in the Pocono Mountains since 1979. This summer, for the first time since the theater’s 1979 opening season, the playhouse will offer four different shows each week – a theatergoers delight.

Why the change from four plays that run consecutively to four different plays per week?

According to Jerry Durkin, chairman of the informal playhouse board and a cast member in “Same Time, Next Year,” the idea came after seeing the results of an online survey taken by 650 Poconos timeshare owners. The favorite amenity of the vacation property owners is not golf, skiing, or even just enjoying the mountains themselves – it is the Shawnee Playhouse.

This summer, the charming 210-seat theater that claims to have no bad seats in the house, will present: “A Chorus Line,” “Grease,” “Godspell,” “Same Time, Next Year,” and “The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare Abridged.”
