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

Went here for a comedy show. They are very organized. The place is beautiful. You will get bad cell reception.

This was a really nice theater. Very beautiful inside, very classic. We were in the balcony and although pretty high up we still had a great view of the show. Like all old theaters the seats weren't very comfortable and the leaving the parking lot was a mess, but overall I would go there again to see a show.

Went to see Kevin James with hubby, it was our first time to this theater. Theater is gorgeous but seats are a bit tiny and rows are too small. Drinks were overpriced! A lager bottle was $9.00!!! That included the special cup you had to purchase to take your beer into the theater. Would've paid that price for a Troeg's... More

The inside is beautiful, The Theatre is old and well kept. Seating a little old, cramped but nice. With the resturants nearby - nice place to catch a show and dinner!

We saw Joseph and the amazing Technicolor dream coat. Honestly, for what we paid for the tickets, I expected a bit more. I've seen other shows that were better, at half the cost. The Theatre was old and nostalgic, very pretty inside, but the seating should be updated, small tight cramped seats. Also, men had to walk upstairs to the... More

This came as part of a Hershey experience weekend. Fun ride learning about how to make chocolate was fun.

My wife and I went to see Kevin James and we were very impressed with the theatre. The entrance area was wide and clean. Ticketing was quick and the ushers were friendly and helpful. The ceiling is beautiful and the accustics are great. We will go again for sure.
