Visited here with my wife as me saw play on modern USA life. Didn't cost us a lot of money to see a 2 hour production. Seats were nice and comfortable. Lot's of seniors bus tours were also taking in this show as well. Lot's of places to eat around here as well. Good afternoon outing!

The acoustics are very good in this theater, and the view of the stage is excellent from any seat, any level. The show productions are outstanding, as are the special well-known artist concerts. A great place for a wonderful evening or matinee. Amble parking with attendants to guide the cars. but early is always best for closer spots. Small gift... More

Located on the eastern side of Lancaster, near all the outlets, this is a full sized performing arts venue with both locally produced and off-Broadway headliners. Check out their web page - they book great performers.

This is a nice venue. The seats are comfortable and the theater is accessible for those with limited mobility. Staff is friendly and helpful in the booking process. The location is directly across the road from the outlet area in Lancaster so if you plan to stay overnight, there are lots of restaurants and shops as well as the Amish... More

We have made the Christmas Show at American Music Theater a tradition at holiday time. They put on a very good show, the theater is just the right size and it is close to home for us. My only negative comment is that ticket prices seem high. Still enjoyable.

We recently took 9 adults and children to see STOMP at AMT. Parking was well managed and convenient, the lobby area was large and attractive, and the seating was comfortable. Buying tickets on line was also easy. The show was GREAT!!
