Anyone who says that there is nothing to do in the Greater Johnstown area needs to look no further than Jennerstown and the historic Mountain Playhouse, nestled in a bucolic setting in the beautiful Laurel Highlands.
As if this former log and stucco gristmill is not enough to make the drive for, there is more.

A bit of creative brainstorming by the producer of a local professional theater has resulted in a new play making its world debut this month at the Mountain Playhouse in Jennerstown. The production, “Neil Simon's Comic Suites,” is composed of humorous scenes selected from the famous playwright's “Suite” plays, all of which take place in hotel rooms.
“I went through the three plays of Simon's ‘Suite' series and picked out the four funniest scenes,” says Teresa Marafino, Mountain Playhouse executive producer. Each scene is an independent “playlet” and has its own title.
In the first scene, “The Visitor From Forest Hills,” a bride locks herself in the bathroom of her hotel suite on her wedding day and refuses to come out. As the wedding guests wait, her parents try to convince her to leave the bathroom and attend her own wedding.
