The Fulton Theatre is one of Lancaster's great treasures and it is right in historic downtown. The shows are always first class and the surroundings take you far, far away from life's normal distractions. Anyone who enjoys live theatre will think they have died and gone to heaven.

This historic theater offers the very best in entertainment. You will think you're on Broadway. The price is right, not a bad seat in the house and the staff are wonderful. Easy parking (affordable and safe). Right in downtown Lancaster and within walking distance of some fine restaurants.

The Fulton Theatre is an absolute gem. As someone that's always been interested in theatre, this is definitely one of my favorite spots in Lancaster. I have yet to be disappointed by the shows. The interior is beautiful. I recommend this to anyone, of any age. You will not be disappointed, I promise. The Prince Street Cafe is conveniently right... More

My 18 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the theatre offered on Fridays at noon. We are theater lovers but weren't familiar with the Fulton and stumbled upon the opportunity. Our guide, the managing director of the theatre, generously shared the storied history of the magnificent venue and gave us an authentic glimpse into the running... More

a lovely place, with outstanding shows, mostly Broadway, especially good with musical/dancing; talent is mostly non-local, NO amateurs. When available, get tickets in the Parquet (slightly elevated, main floor), good accoustics. Parking lot ($) across the street

Fulton Theatre is a wonderful taste of the arts. The Fulton is historic, it is beautiful, it is intimate, it is true theatre. I have taken my entire firm to the Fulton and they all love the plays and musicals that are produced. I would recommend this theatre to anyone.

Going to see a show at the Fulton brings me great joy. I am a Lancaster habitant and see a show at least once per year. Their productions are done in-house and are of broadway quality. It's a great place to introduce your children to a culture of theater.

This is a beautiful old theater with a wonderful history. We've seen at least 50 productions over the years and have never seen a show that was a disappointment! Their musicals are especially good. These shows are extremely professionally done and the performers, costumes and sets rival the Broadway shows. They also have a series of shows especially for families... More

I have had the good fortune of living near The Fulton for 35 years and have seen a number of productions over the course of this time. My most recent visit was to see the production of Footloose. What a great show! I can honestly say that there are no bad seats....although I prefer seating in the Parquet section. It... More
