In 1981 the Sawmill Theatre was opened in the museum section of the old Sawmill, using church pews and camp chairs for seating. Soon the need for a larger theatre was evident and, in 1984, the Verna Leith Sawmill Theatre was constructed with monies from the Appalachian Regional Commission and Pennsylvania State Appropriations. First of it's kind in the Eastern U.S., the theatre's unique hexagon shape and harmonious blend with the natural settings earned designer William Snyder the 1984 design award from the Arts Architectural Commission of Pennsylvania. Details such as professional lighting, side decks, ticket office, and interior restrooms were added in 1988. Theatre patrons find themselves seated on newly refurbished seats from the Silver Fox Playhouse in Foxburg.
Offering mystery, comedy, and major Broadway Musicals, Northwestern Pennsylvania Theatre groups perform from late May through mid-September.

Great Gift or Memorial For a Loved One!

The Verna Leith Sawmill Theatre is offering the purchase of name plates to be attached to either a seat ($250) or to a plaque ($100) hung on the wall of theatre.
