Just saw Doubt. Very minimal scenery, as typical for Spring Mill theatre, but in plays where that doesn’t matter- it’s perfect. I’m not always fond of their selections, and therefore prefer popping in if a production appeals to me. It’s so very small, but one can often get seats at the last minute. $18.00 to see a live performance is a pretty good deal!

We thoroughly enjoy coming here. The Langhorne players perform in an old historical Grist Mill. Seeing a show here is an intimate experience. I think the theater has about 56 seats. it is a local theater with dedicated volunteers that work hard to put on quality productions from May to October. The sets are usually marvelous. Tickets are about $14 for live theater. We see multiple shows here every year and the majority of them are very well done.

The theater holds only about 75 people in 3 rows. No bad seats. The acting is usually quite good, but sometimes the show subjects get a bit too eclectic for my taste.

It is usually a good community theatrical experience with supportive audiences, delightful acting in a very intimate "old barn" that used to have a leaky roof, was flooded once and keeps on ticking.

Tickets are inexpensive and generally available.

If you haven't seen a Langhorne Players' production at the historic Spring Garden Mill, come prepared for a unique experience. The Mill, which is part of Tyler State Park, was originally built in 1819, and has been renovated numerous times. Because of its age and historical character, molding and maintaining it for theatrical use has been a continual work-in-progress ever since the Players, which is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, began leasing the Mill in 1976. The Mill's location, next to Neshaminy Creek, both adds to its charm and puts the structure at risk of flood damage—a risk that has been realized enough times to have surely strained both the Company's finances and its resolve.

Why mention these challenges? Keep them in mind when you decide to see a Langhorne Players production. Make sure you get to the Mill early enough to walk around a bit, both inside and out. Breathe in the some of the atmosphere and history of both the Mill and Langhorne Players. Note the intimacy you experience with the action on stage from any of the 73 seats in the theater. Even first-timers may begin to feel the organic connection between the production and the place.

If the setting and the play aren't enough to give you the warm fuzzies by intermission, consider the free soft drinks and salty snacks provided at the break. The self-acknowledged "signature" snack is the incredibly popular "cheese curls." [Donation jars are strategically situated in the lobby to cover the costs of the snacks, but there is no pressure to contribute.]

Seeing a production of Langhorne Players at the Spring Garden Mill is more than just going to see a play. It truly is an experience greater than the sum of its parts.

Langhorne Players Theater Group have a 60+ year history of providing Bucks County residents with outstanding productions of both mainstream and experimental plays. The venue is a renovated Mill in the heart of Tyler Park. The theater is small and "rustic", but comfortable. The productions feature excellent direction, staging, sets, and costuming. The acting is almost always highly professional and the plays innovative. The season of 5 plays runs from April through October and season subscriptions are $65 and $75.

Rickety run-down facility hosting low-budget community theatre plays only (the facility cannot physically support musical productions) with low production values but decent actors in seldom-produced plays.
