“Visiting a charming , quaint, playhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

All seats are good. The play or entertainment is on the floor in the middle of the room with 3 sides of the room having seats. The seats were theater style and comfortable. Rest rooms were modern and clean. A variety of tasty snacks were available. The talent was excellent for the musical, Guys and Dolls. The prices were great. Temperature, sound and lighting , made the experience comfortable.

“This place is a must !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I have had an annual subscription to EPAC for several years. The quality of their performances is outstanding. The dedication and professionalism of the theater's staff and performers is inspirational. The selection of shows each year is delightfully eclectic and the performances rival those of the most professional theaters. EPAC shows must be on every person's calendar as a must do!!

“hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The layout of the theatre means there's hardly a bad seat in the house. Plus you are close enough too the actors' expressions, etc. It's a quaint theatre tucked away off the main street in Ephrata. EPAC holds nothing back, so some shows may be more suited for families without small children (Use your better judgment - please don't take your small children to see The Full Monty for example). However, they do have children's shows (ie: Annie, Jr) and well-known classics that the whole family would thoroughly enjoy (ie: Guys and Dolls this summer). Performers are top-notch! And some EPAC veterans have gone on to become well-known actors, like Jonathan Groff.

“Affordable theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great performances at a reasonable price. The actors and actresses are top notch. For a small town theatre it is very well done.
