90 years as America's first repertory theatre hasn't dimmed the luster of its performances. Acting and producing traditions abound, with descendants of former stars beginning their climb to fame while teaching others, parking cars, serving refreshments, living the life.

It's not Broadway, but it is great deal more enjoyable. Need some great entertainment along with the charm of beautiful Historic Rose Valley PA. I grew up just a couple of miles away in the not so affluent area, Chester PA. This was my first visit in almost 50 years to this Theater. The show Run for you Wife was... More

Hederow Theatre has been around many years and it is well worth the trip to Rosé Valley to attend a performance. We love their yearly productions of British farces by Ray Cooney. The theatre, itself, is an old mill that has been totally renovated. The staff is professional and very welcoming.

It is hard to describe just how magical this little theater is. It has benefitted from the work of Wharton G. Esherick, who was a wonderful woodworker in the 40's & 50's. Wortha trip just for the edcore!

I took my daughter here to see Charlottes Web and we absolutely loved it. I almost went back to see it again. The theater has the greatest old world charm, and the cast gave out lemonade and animal crackers after the show. Just lovely!

I love visiting Hedgerow Theater because I have never seen a show that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. I also love the old stone building it is housed in. It creates such a pleasing atmosphere with the actors and actresses greeting you after the show as you are leaving. They serve soft drinks and cookies during intermission. It is such a... More

It has been three years since my wife and I left the Media area, but we still miss the Hedgerow Theater. This place is a gem. It is "out in the boonies" but it is a first rate attraction well worth the effort it takes to find it. Don't be surprised if the person directing you to a parking spot... More

This pocket theatre is where stars are born, and may go on to shine elsewhere. Rustic and regional, this theatre puts on good to great plays---standards and newbies. To stay alive, it competes with the Media Theatre, Media, PA, up the road. And, that theatre has equity players. Sitting in Rose Valley, PA, it oozes the arts from its walls... More

Have been a patron since I was a child. I am always impressed with the quality of acting, which is my main draw to theater. Costumes, props, etc, are always great there too, but not things I value as much as the acting, and I'd say the acting is always well done, rivaling and often besting downtown playhouses. The play...
