The Shawnee Institute’s production will be a multi-media musical theatrical spectacular that specifically addresses the history and culture of Smithfield Township, Pennsylvania. Integral elements will include the Revolutionary War, The Shawnee Tribe, Tecumseh, Nicholas Depuy (a local Revolutionary War hero) and the very early filing of a manumission (the only document freeing a slave) through song, dance, music and historic slides. see drama project>>

A Stronger and Healthier Community

Shawnee Institute is working towards a stronger and healthier community with its involvement in such activities as theatrical play readings of local playwright’s work, the local River Road clean-up environmental projects, and the Community Concert Series, which features performances by local musicians at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. The most recent project in site is the Shawnee Institute Program Series, which provides an “experience” vacation with many opportunities to involve the entire family.

Located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains along the Delaware River, Shawnee Institute is dedicated to sustainable lifestyle in the Pocono Mountains region and embraces eco-friendly practices and education whenever possible. For more details or general information about our community outreach non-profit organization, the Shawnee Institute LTD, please contact us at the address or phone number below.
