Worthington Hall, now known as the Shawnee Playhouse, was a historic theatre located in Smithfield Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1904.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1] It was delisted in 1986 after being demolished following a fire—caused by arson—on June 24, 1985.[2] With help from the people of Shawnee on Delaware, the Seabees, the Hughes Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, The National Trust, a Community Development Block Grant, and generous donations from many individuals and friends, the playhouse was rebuilt.
