The Hershey Theater always has great shows. I even had wine in a sippy cup. It was better than no drinks in the theater.

I have watched several shows here and have always had a good experience. The best part is the free parking and you don't have to walk a lot to get into the theatre.

I love historical structures and architecture, so I really wanted to see this building. But when I got there, I was able to see the lobby/reception area, which was amazing. But the lady in the ticket booth told me to leave in a very mean tone. The reason I dont give it a really bad review is because later on... More

We went to see Sesame Street live, it was so fun and such a great show. Building and bathrooms were clean, just wish the bathroom had a changing table in it. Would absolutely see another show here again!!

The Hershey Theatre is one of the best looking theatres in PA. Stepping inside the ceiling is just breath taking, you almost feel royal. The inner lobby has gold, GOLD on the ceiling! Everything, from the lobbies to the staircase, even the bathrooms makes you feel like you are in a palace. Every time I went, the parking lot across... More

Went to see the Nutcracker with my Sister-in-law on Sunday. This was my first ever visit and I was very impressed. We were in the second row and we could see everything. The only thing is if there is an orchestra, sometimes your view is blocked by the Conductor, so check where you are sitting especially if you have a... More

We've seen "Joseph and the Technicolor Coat" here and really enjoyed it. If I rated Joseph, it would get 4 stars. We just saw "Elf" last night and left at the intermission. Granted it's truly the screenwriter's fault for using inappropriate language as well as feeling the need to add sexual innuendos, Hershey's director could have filtered some of this... More

This is so beautiful. I felt like I was in this special theatre just for me. It was a good size-- farthest row is like 150 yards from the stage. I felt like I could see the musicians facial expressions and it was just lovely. The ushers were great, and the bathrooms were clean. A little tight with elbow room,... More

We came to Hershey from the Philly area to see the Mannheim Steamroller concert on 11/30 and I was very impressed. The building is absolutely beautiful and historic! They had plenty of people helping with tickets and seating and things moved quickly. As with most older theaters, seats are a little close together, so elbow room is at a minimum,... More
