This spring while visiting Lancaster Pa. we finally made time to take in a couple of shows at The American Music Theater. The theater itself is beautifully laid out; the staff were very professional and the entertainment was world class. All in all it was well worth our time spent there.

My husband and I have seen many of the Original Shows that The American Music Theater has staged over the years and have loved every one. We've taken many family members and friends to these shows and they all enjoyed them greatly. We are soon going to attend their newest production "Inspire" and we're bringing my 94 year old aunt...

A magnificent theater, strongly resembles Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach. Terrific shows, not cheap, but if you want inexpensive, stay home and watch tv. Use shopping center parking across the street for quick exit after show.

We saw "The Man in Black" show, a Johnny Cash Tribute. The show and the performers were outstanding ! The theatre is very nice, the seats are comfy, better than a standard movie theatre. The only issue is leaving after the show. The only way out is onto a busy highway ( Rt. 30 ) and you have to wait... More

Thank you for visiting our theatre recently. Our parking lot staff works hard to get everyone out as quickly as possible, but we have some challenges.

Now this may be the BEST place to see a show in Lancaster. A clean friendly show place. Great lobby for couples to mingle and hang out before the show.
