“Theatre at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

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.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

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 just so enjoyable. The cast did a terrific job, dialog is based on timing and movement. They all did it well. Simultaneous events on stage, with the actors portraying to be in different locations - all in one set - I can't understand how they can concentrate on there lines with so much happening..

Seating is better than the balcony in any older Broadway play house. Free Parking - just steps away from the entrance. Cars are directed into the lot by what turned out to be a major cast member. My best guess is they hold about 150 people, all the seats were filled with people who appreciated the performance. We were about the middle row of 1 - 12 and the six of us had center seating. Actually row F - possibly the best seats in the house.

Treat yourself to a show - Tickets were under $ 30.00

“Wonderful historic theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

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.

“Great Little Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

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!
