I love seeing shows in this theater! Truly isn't a bad seat in the house! My daughter had her dance recitals here and the sound is good and seating is awesome. Sometimes the tickets are a bit over priced but otherwise a great theater to go see a show! I love the ceiling and details in the theater!

Agreat place to go to she shows. The theater has been around many years. They have great Broadway shows every year The price is reasonable. They even sell package deals if interested. The package deals are the way to go..

This is a breath taking theater! It was cluttered up with dance competition stuff (my niece was dancing here) but I plan to come back for a show to drink it all in properly. You could easily spend awhile just checking it out, I would be interested in a tour...

Its always a great feeling walking into a beautiful theatre lobby to get one excited for the evening's performance. Beautiful theatre with architectural details not found in newer buildings. Parking is convenient as well.

If you have not been here for a performance, you should go. The theater is gorgeous and the performances are top notch. It is worth it, and hey the aroma of chocolate makes it even better. Great seats on the balcony and a wonderful atmosphere all around.

The Hershey Theatre is original to the town and dates back to Milton Hershey's era ... it's a lovely piece of history. The architecture is amazing. We saw several Broadway shows there and all were wonderful - a real gem!

The Hershey Theatre is a historical landmark and icon in Chocolate town. Amazing place, historic feel and sounds, can't wait for the 'sound cloud' to be installed! That will dramatically improve the sound and acoustics in the theater. Come check out the volunteer based Hershey Symphony Orchestra - they can really put on a heck of a show! Despite their... More

I had heard great things about this venue and was very excited to see Brit Floyd there. I donated to WITF and got great seats from them. The seats were confortable, the sound was right, the parking was good for in/out. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this venue for another show of any sort.
