We’ve never been dissatisfied at the Lanc Opera House. The performances are always good. The floor seat Is flat, so sitting further back can be hard. There is a balcony, that’s where we like to sit.

Went there for Elvis Birthday weekend, was only going on Friday night, ended up going Saturday too. You can't beat the price for the tribute bands. Great venue

The Lancaster Opera House is a wonderful place to see class act productions. The sound is good, the seats comfortable. Whoever books the productions does a great job with their selection. There is something for everyone on the schedule.
