It has been years since I've seen a show here but was glad to come back. Will be going again. Great show. Acting, singing, dancing, etc was wonderful. Great opportunity to see a show close to home.

This is the first time we got a chance to see a show at this place. The place is in the downtown. Amazed to see the classic old theatre settings. I realized the hard work & team effort to maintain this Theatre. We saw the shoe "The wizard of Oz". We all enjoyed the show including my boys 11 &... More

It's not quite Broadway, we are in Lancaster Pennsylvania. Yet I always enjoy the show. I always look forward,to my next visit and the fact that I'm not paying a fortune for a fun evening at the theater.

The theater has historic charm and character. The Wizard of Oz show included great acting, singing, choreography, and staging/props. Favorite part was Toto - hard to believe the dog was so well trained! It doesn't seem like there are any bad seats here. Would definitely see another show at the Fulton.

Most of their plays are just so so for the pricees they charge!! They think they are on the same line as a Chicago or Boston theater BUT THEY are NOT!! They need to get better Quality and charge less!! They have a long way to go to hit the BIG TIME!!!

Every play has been done magnificently. If you love good theatre and or musicals, but don't like the prices and hustle bustle of NYC.. you gotta go to the Fulton!

We've seen several productions at the Fulton Theatre over the past couple of years and every single one of them has been first-rate. The Wizard of Oz featured outstanding acting and singing and thrilling special effects. We loved the "rain" on the stage in Singing in the Rain, and loved the mystery of Arsenic and Old Lace. We also enjoy... More

A beautiful old theater, incredibly restored with top notch shows. Some local talent as well as big-time imported stars.

We saw White Christmas and were pleased. Despite sitting at the top, we still had great views of the play. The show was high quality and stayed true to the film. The architecture inside and out are stunning. Truly a must see theatre.
