I never took a tour of the Theatre, but I know it has an interesting story about it. They have wonderful plays there. I've been there lots of times and I have never been disappointed.

This is a lovely old theater in downtown Lebanon, parking is close by too. Lots to look at in the theater itself - beautiful architecture and wonderful acoustics.

There is not much to dislike about the Fulton, other than the fact that I, for one, am scared of the steepness of the balcony steps! I feel as though I am going to fall and go rolling right over the rail and plop down into the lower level seats! But there are no bad seats at the theater, the... More

Not only do they produce Broadway quality shows, the history of the Fulton Theatre (aka Fulton Opera House) is fascinating! Plus, it's said to be haunted. Check out this blog about this haunted history: www.padutchcountryblog.com/hauntings-at-the-fulton-theatre-in-lancaster-county-pa/

We come to Lancaster just stay here! Love the swimming pool. The rooms are luxurious! Wonderful ambiance! Roast marshmallows over an open fire, feed ducks, swim.

We did not actually see a show here. We were passing through town and asked if we could take a look inside. The staff member who answered the door then took us on a tour of the old place and showed us around whilst a rehearsal was going on. Fabulous hospitality - I would see a show there if I... More

Architecturally The Fulton is a gem that maintains the beauty and glory of the past. The shows that we have seen there are always first rate-- great sets and designs, professional actors.

Beautiful gem of a theater in Lancaster,PA. Productions generally of good to high quality, and since the seats were replace a bit ago, much more comfy. Prices reasonable. Parking downtown on some days/nights can be awkward. Not always. Wondeerful ice cream shop acroos the street.

My wife and I have seen three performances here and have been blown away every time. Stunning acting, beautiful old opera house, small crowds. What more could you ask? Book tickets early on their website, prices for every budget. Skip the refreshments in lobby and buy a drink across the street at Prince St Cafe.
