The theatre is very ornate and beautiful...will not see buildings built like this today due to extreme building costs. Loved all the Southern Gospel Groups that performed. Only complaint is seats are a little too small and the bathroom are downstairs.

Absolutely beautiful theater. Sound, cleanliness perfect However I will never go back to see a concert there. No attempt to control crowd. I'm in 4th row Center and 3 idiots in the second row all well over 6 ft stood and blocked view of everyone behind them. People in back stood in isles next to stage again blocking patrons views....

Went to see national tour of Ragtime last night at the Hershey Theater. The facility is an architectual jewel in Central PA and we have been there many times, though this time we sat in the loge. The theater itself is beautiful and the seats are excellent for viewing, though they are not for larger people and even my wife... More

Although the night was wonderful with Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld keeping us entertained and informed for over 2 hours, the billed meet and greet pictures were not available at the end of the evening as had been promised....The organization and coordination of the before and after event time was not well done. I had expected much more.....

I went to see Brit Floyd here. I was front and center. Ushers were very helpful and the acoustics/sound system were very good for a building of this age. Slight drawback is that as a fund raiser, you have to buy a special cup if you want to take a drink to your seat.

We saw "Let It Be" Beatles Tribute Band and the wonderful atmosphere and the theatre acoustics enhanced the performance. The Theatre is an Amazing place and a throwback to the Theatre's of old. We would like to come back again for a play, a musical or concert.

I have been to many venues for concerts and just made it to the Hershey Theater for the first time. The interior is very nice and everything for the show went well. Overall it was a good experience.

First time to Hershey Theater. Plenty of parking, great inside architecture. We had seats in first row of orchestra seating. Great view, excellent symphony and comfortable seating. Hats off to the Hershey Symphony. Had been somewhat concerned about getting out from parking, but it was fast and smooth. I would highly recommend and will return for future events.
