Now the Playhouse is inviting the public to join in the fun with Tap Dance Tuesdays.

Beginning at 6:30 pm, on the remaining Tuesday evening performances (July 10, 17, 24 and 31), there will be a 20-minute tap dance lesson in the courtyard of the Playhouse (tap shoes are encouraged, but not required). The short lesson will be taught by the Bucks County Playhouse Apprentice Company, led by Broadway choreographer and dance educator, Patrice Soriero. The Bethlehem Press heralded "42nd Street" with ... "the best tap dancing this side of Broadway."

Single tickets to "42nd Street" range from $40 - $80. Special rates for groups of 10 or more. Season ticket packages are still available.

ABOUT Bucks County Playhouse

Bucks County Playhouse is a year-round, nonprofit theatre that has grown to a $6 million producing organization with an annual audience of over 73,000. Founded in 1939 in a converted 1790 gristmill, Bucks County Playhouse quickly became "the most famous summer theatre in America," featuring a roster of American theatrical royalty including Helen Hayes, George S. Kaufman, Moss Hart, Kitty Carlisle, Angela Lansbury, Alan Alda, Tyne Daly, Bernadette Peters, and Liza Minnelli and remained in continuous operation until 2010. In 2012, the Playhouse re-opened after a multi-million-dollar restoration thanks to the efforts of the Bridge Street Foundation, the nonprofit family foundation of Kevin and Sherri Daugherty, and Broadway producer Jed Bernstein. This fall, the Playhouse will unveil a 4,000 square foot Delaware-river facing restaurant and bar expansion.

In 2014, Tony Award-winning producers Alexander Fraser and Robyn Goodman took the helm of the Playhouse, and today the Playhouse has reclaimed its reputation of attracting Broadway and Hollywood artists. Its productions of Company starring Justin Guarini, and William Finn's The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee were named by Wall Street Journal to its "Best of Theatre" list for 2015. The 2017 season included four world premieres and audiences grew by over 34%. Box office record has been repeatedly broken by Signature Productions of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, Steel Magnolias directed by Marsha Mason, and Guys & Dolls directed by Hunter Foster. The creative teams who come to create new productions at the Playhouse are among the most talented artists working in the professional theatre today and relish the opportunity to work on the historic stage where Grace Kelly, Robert Redford, and Jessica Walter began their careers.
