Most recently, we had the pleasure of attending an original musical/dance production at the American Music Theatre ( Lancaster, PA), titled INSPIRE. The singers, musicians and dancers, all extremely talented, provided the audience with their renditions of popular inspirational songs which evoked emotion and were quite moving. The collective talents on stage were intertwined and entertainingly executed. Should you be... More

This is the first show I saw without any back up singers or other band members. Neil Sedaka played his piano and sang non stop. There was no intermission. He sang and talked to the audience the entire time. I didn't realize how many songs he had written not only for himself but for other singers. I would attend his... More

The music, the costumes, the Theater itself, just beautiful! I loved the service we received too. They show you exactly where to park, and once inside, the ushers find your seat for you too. Such wonderful service! Very affordable snacks too. I am grateful they don't try to stick it to you like the movie theatres do. The gift shop... More

Awesome location to see both local and traveling shows. No bad seats - very intimate. If you see someone on their schedule you want to see get your tickets early as shows often sell out quickly due to the size of the venue.

The theater gets a diverse group of great entertainers during the year and their own show is always terrific!! It's nice to have a place so close to downtown Lancaster that has affordable entertainment. It's a very clean and well run place. Be sure (if you book online) that you are actually on The American Music Theater web site. It... More

I'd like to first thank you for being a repeat patron to AMT. I'm happy to read you've enjoyed many shows in years past. Sadly, Inspire did not fare so well for you. Inspire is lightly based on a story of two young characters who are facing difficult times in their lives, they meet, and eventually get married. While we... More

I saw Bob Newhart here (he is still funny). The theater is small-ish (1600 seats), clean, and new-looking. The staff is friendly. The upcoming events seem to be older acts. The one downside to this venue is the parking. Although the parking is free, it was a nightmare getting out of the parking lot. The only attendants directing traffic were... More
