Great place for a concert.

Great place to see a concert. Smaller venue so less traffic and more personal . There isn't a bad seat in the house.

We have been to this venue many times. Its seating is spacious and comfortable. The performers here come from every genre of music, so there is bound to be something for everyone. There's also lots to do in the surrounding area in Lancaster.

I have seen many Christmas shows here they are all fabulous, some events can be a little pricey but who minds paying a little extra for something that truly is a little extra.

I'm not supposed to be able to write another review on the same venue before three months, but this is not about the venue, it's about the show...

I absolutely love American Music Theater. The shows are always wonderful and the talent is superb. I specifically love the people who work there (Adrienne, one of the ushers, is one of my favorites and all of the cast members and musicians). The most recent AMT cast show, "Inspire", is fantastic. The variety of music in this show is a... More

We attended the Summer Doo Wop Cavalcade on June 20. Love the theater. Seats very comfortable. Ushers great. Gift shop has wonderful items. Ticket processes are all very easy. Music (Coda Band) and every group that performed were outstanding. Great Show. Attend these shows regularly.
