    Playhouse in the Park

    Playhouse In the Park opened in 1959 as one of the first regional theatres in America, and today many people consider it to be one of the best. The Playhouse presents a broad range of shows with appeal to a wide audience. There are two auditoriums, the 626-seat Robert S. Marx Theatre and the more intimate 225 seat Thompson Shelterhouse. They are situated high on the side of Mt. Adams, with stunning views of the city below.

    Playhouse in the Park is a not-for-profit organization with an annual budget of $9 million which involves 75 full time staff and about 1,000 volunteers. Every year a quarter-million theatergoers attend the performances, which are often sold out.

    Playhouse in the Park is the 2004 recepient of the Regional Theatre Tony Award. We have attended productions here and found them to be of an excellent professional caliber. A total of 14 plays are being produced for the current season. Click on the web link below for specific plays, times, and tickets.

    Cincinnati has wonderful connections to The Arts. From Music Hall, to The Aronoff Center, to Playhouse in the Park, to the Art Museum...there is something for all tastes! We have the Reds, and the Bengals and Ice Hockey for the sports enthusiast! We're even fairly close to Riverboat Gambling if you're feeling lucky tonight!
