Eighty Years at the Mountain Playhouse: Summer Stock Lives!

At the height of its popularity, there were more than 150 Summer Stock theaters in the northeast United States. Today, only eight remain, including the Mountain Playhouse in Jennerstown, PA. In 2019, the Mountain Playhouse is celebrating 80 years as a professional Equity theater.

The book project began in May 2018, under the direction of Dr. Paul Newman. Student researchers Yami Audisio, Laken Burkhardt, Josh Calandrella, and Erin Whyte spent hours digitizing playbills, scrapbook images, and photo albums at the Mountain Playhouse, while Cameron Carr performed archival research at the Somerset Historical Center. In fall 2018, Jonathan Van Dermark joined the project and researched the theater founder’s private archives. Kelsey Chabal was added at that time as editor and writer.

The book is published by the Somerset Daily American.

A 100-page book illustrated with 160 images from the theater’s collection of playbills, production photos and scrapbooks.
