I've seen a ton of shows here...most notably Dreamgirls, Wizard of Oz, Addams Family, Ghost and Footloose and every single time I've been impressed! The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable about the theatre. The shows are well done. The cast and crew are true professionals. The building is BEAUTIFUL--full of history and home to a few ghosts! Go... More

Old city charm mixed with a very youthful presentation. Our latest experience at the Fulton, was jaw dropping. The cast a story of Footloose was just beyond wonderful. The quality of the actors was amazing. We have not been disappointed! There are some obstructed view seats, but most seats are very good, no matter where you sit! The architecture of... More

This is the first time I have been to the Fulton in about 20 years. We saw "Footloose" and I was very impressed with the quality of the production, the cast, the comfort of the seats and the ease of parking, etc. I have attended shows everywhere from Broadway to the West End, and while this was not in that...

I visited this place about five times over the past year or so, and it never fails to amuse me. Amazing and professional actors, great ambience, decent cost, nice facility... never had any complaints! The best show in my opinion was The Full Monty!

I bought tickets to see "Footloose". I was happy to have front row mezzanine seats, expecting to have a great view of the stage. The theatre is beautiful, a lovely step back in time. But when we got to our seats, there was a rail atop the low wall in front of our seats that ended up being eye level.... More

Visiting the USA from Australia and we thought we would give this a go. We went as a family, had dinner in the great pub at the rear of the car park across the road from the theatre.The theatre was very nice and had a real community feel about it. Footloose was fantastic, we noticed that the cast was a... More

I've seen several shows at the Fulton Theatre. I have never been disappointed. The shows are must-see theater and the performers do not disappoint. There's not a bad seat in the house. Location is fabulous, in downtown Lancaster. Plenty of dinner choices nearby as well as after show cocktail stops. Parking is plentiful, although not without charge. I would not... More

BRAVO!!! We visited the Fulton Theater for the very first time last weekend. (Saw Footloose, the musical.) WONDERFUL EQUITY THEATER! We loved the show! There wasn't a weak-link in the cast. The direction and choreography were spot on! We will come back to this theater in the future. (We were traveling from out-of-town).
