The variety and quality of this downtown theater is excellent. History fans will also find an amazing past to the Fulton. In the later part of the 19th Century, not only was it a theater, there was a shooting gallery on the floor above! Gunpowder and sawdust no doubt sifted onto patrons below. Opera, theater, vaudeville, and film have all... More

This lovely old theater continues to amaze with its top notch shows and talent! Their current show, "The Wizard of Oz" was the most elaborate production I have ever seen. The special efforts rival something you would see on Broadway. Bravo to the Fulton for continuing with every show to deliver top notch entertainment to Lancaster!

We've attended shows at the Fulton and have always had a great time. The professionalism of everyone involved is readily apparent. The theatre itself is kept in pristine condition. It is a great night out in Lancaster. The theatre is just the right size and I've never had a problem getting great seats. The proximity to some of the area's... More

Have held season tickets for the symphony for several years. The quality of the symphony is second to none. The theatre performances for the various plays are very good. Highly recommend.

We're not in Lancaster anymore Toto! The colors and sets captured my imagination as the familiar story was performed professionally by the actors. I liked the jitterbug and the flying monkeys.... I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Dorothy and her friends follow the yellow brick road all the way to Oz. Go see it!

My husband and I recently attended a performance of the Wizard of Oz. it was a beautifully done show! The theater itself was built in the 1800's and still boasts the grand architecture of the day. We have been to several shows here and will definitely come back again.

The Fulton Theatre offers live theatre and concerts throughout the year. Several years ago the theatre was renovated and redecorated. We recently saw the production of The Wizard of OZ. It is amazing what can be done by the theatre crew. The special effects were impressive and the acting was up to Broadway standards. Definitely worth a try. There are... More

Wonderful production. We are season ticket holders and I am consistently pleased with the professional level of productions that the Fulton puts on. Comedy, musical, or drama , their shows never disappoint.

We have season tickets every year. Most of the leads are equity actors. Each show is wonderful. Love it!
