Good place to watch a live show. Off-broadway, of course, but good for a small city. Many of the actors seem to have performed on Broadway, though. The shows I have seen had good acting and excellent singing, costumes, etc. Well worth the cost of the ticket. Note that you can get seats for $20-25 in the balcony. Decent view,... More

Fulton Theatre presents a wide variety of plays and live Orchestras. Sometimes inviting guests for Foreign Countries like China. Not a bad seat in the house.

The Fulton Theater is an amazing unique theater. It was an opera house back in the early 1900's. No matter where you sit you have a great view of the stage. The actors are all pros. Most have been either on Broadway or off Broadway. Just saw Young Frankenstein.Cant wait to go back and see Buddy, the Buddy Holly Story.... More

Our most recent visit to the Fulton was to see Young Frankenstein. It was bawdy and very funny- personally, though, I wouldn't take a pre-teen or young teen to it. The actors and actresses were a delight to watch. We have been to the Fulton for many productions over the past five years, and each production was a real treat.... More

We have now seen 4 shows in the past year at the Fulton. They quality of the shows is superb. The sets are well made, the acting and singing is excellent. I have seen traveling Broadway shows in Hershey that are not half as good for twice the money. The Lady In Black show had special effects. Arsenic and Old... More

The Fulton Theatre's production of Kesselring's comedy play "Arsenic and Old Lace" was a perfect entertainment. The Fulton took me back to 1939 and brought the lovely spinsters Abby and Martha to life on stage in a most genteel, but deadly fashion; they were wonderful. The entire cast was fantastic. What a pleasure to watch a play with no profanity... More
