Took in a live holiday performance of White Christmas. Everything was superb. Acting, dancing, orchestra, sound, lighting, special effects. A quality production in an intimate, historic theater.

Just a five minute walk from Penn Square and the Farmer's Market, this historic "opera house" is a gem. The management takes care of this historic site while bringing New York and Touring caliber talent for the stage productions. The house is small, but the feeling is big with several seating options and an intimate atmosphere. Tickets are not cheap,... More

By Dana DeRose I am not ashamed to admit this: I have a love affair with old movies. Any type will do, but I especially love classic musical theater. (Nope, not ashamed to admit that either!) While most little girls in the 90′s fantasized about meeting New Kids on the Block, I dreamed of one day meeting Gene Kelly or... More

3rd time here and never ever disappoints. Easy to get to and always a great show. If you have the opportunity to go you will be glad you did.

First, the theatre itself is beautiful. Lots of character in this building and everything seemed to be well maintained. The seats were a little snug, but that is very common in older theatres. My tickets were waiting for me at the box office and the staff was all very friendly. I did not partake, but the theatre has a bar... More

A great version for kids. Although ballet was incorporated, the characters all talked. Humor was injected throughout the show. My five year old son really enjoyed the show.

I don't say this lightly, but the performance of white Christmas was Broadway caliber. I could find no fault with the performance I saw. The orchestra was full and solid, the sets and staging were awesome, and the talent ws superb. This is not a community theatre. This is guild talent. The theatre is historic and the parking and access... More

We went for the first time to see their holiday performance, White Christmas. Beautiful theater. Had good seats to see the performance; however, I will say that the seats are close together (and I'm a smaller-framed person). The performances, singing, and stage settings were professionally done. Would go back again.

We went to see Irving Berlin's White Christmas. We were blown away with the beautiful old theatre. As with all things Lancaster county, the history jumps out at you. The show was outstanding and the theatre was a fantastic venue to see it in. All seats are excellent, with just a few on the outer edge having a very slightly... More

Daughter and I are big fans of the movie. She even watches it in the summer. We know most of the lines by heart. The play was changed so much the continuity wasn't there. They didn't sing White Christmas in the first war scene. Phil didn't get saved by Bob after bombs hit so the whole reason Bob would always... More
