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.

This is a beautiful theatre in a breathtaking historic building down to the detail. Went to see the Hershey Symphony Orchestra and the place was almost sold out - it got very hot very quick and they did not have the AC on. Everybody was using their program as a fan. This makes it hard to enjoy the show and... More

I had the chance to hear the PA Music Educators Association All-State Wind Ensemble and Choir at the conclusion of this year's conference. The Hershey Theatre helped to make the occasion memorable. It is a beautiful older design that takes you back to the early 20th Century. The detailing around the proscenium and all around the hall is quite elegant... More

The PA music educators sponsor the best music students in the state at an annual concert and it was held this year at the Hershey Theatre. The venue is beautiful and spacious. The acoustics are great and seats comfortable.

This is a beautiful theater built during the great depression and one of the reasons Milton Hershey kept his town from feeling the depression. He commissioned it to be built, along with several other buildings in Hershey, keeping citizens employed despite the tough times. It has been kept up really well. It's beautiful and parking is easy. It's a great... More
