Post Playhouse. A long-running professional summer stock theater, the Playhouse hosts several productions each season, with about 12 performances each week. When you know the dates of your visit, check the Playhouse schedule and get your tickets ordered. They sell out quickly!
Finally, if you're looking for an incredible summer job, consider applying! According to employees at the park and locals we spoke to in town, the park generally employs around 150 during the summer travel season, but this year they were down around 50 employees. You could see it in the maintenance, shortened hours in some of the amenities, and in the quality of some of the activities.
Enjoy your stay!
