There are two locally produced shows. This year they are doing CROONERS: a great trip back to the days of Frank Sinatra and others of that era. In the Oct-Dec timeframe they do a great Christmas Show that rivals the Rockettes Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Every year is different, but exceedingly special. Below I...

Really nice venue. The ushers and rest of the staff were so pleasant & helpful! The parking wasn't too crazy or difficult to maneuver. We had great seats in the orchestra section, everything sounded good...And Aaron Lewis put on an excellent show!

I had the opportunity to see Jackson Browne at the American MusicTheater, in Lancaster Pa. recently. The acoustics at this venue were exceptional, and the size of the Theater allowed the artist to interact very intimately with the audience. It is definitely worthwhile to keep an eye on their schedule as any reason to see a favorite artist at this... More

We were visiting Lancaster, PA. rain was in the forecast and we were looking for something indoors to do. We saw ads for American Music Theatre, with a production entitled "Crooners." We didn't expect much, but found the show to be absolutely wonderful. My husband and I had a very enjoyable afternoon. We will definitely follow their show offerings and... More

Styx was awesome . Sound & venue great. What was really weird, we were never at a rock concert where everyone sat down like it was a Broadway musical. You people ( probably a lot of membership people ) need to get up & enjoy yourselves instead of sitting there like a bunch of dead people. Maybe all you members... More

We went to the American Music Theater to see The Shoji Tabucchi Show. The performance was Fantastic but where we sat up in the Balcony first row we couldn't see a lot of the show because whoever was doing the lighting shone the spot lights directly into the balcony blinding anyone sitting up there. I hope they fix this before... More

My first experience here was a good one. Comfy seats and lots of leg room plus a cup holder in front of you! Great acoustics and the staff was super friendly. The prices for food and drinks were very reasonable and parking was easy. I'd come back here again to see a show any time!

This is a great place to go see a show. Have been there to see Alice Cooper, ZZ Top (twice) and Heart. Never a bad seat and the sound is great. If you want to go have a good time and enjoy a clean comfortable seat and very well staffed and curtious crew you will not be disappointed. 5 stars... More

A group of about 20 young people singing songs and dancing to tunes from 40s, 50s, and 60s. Good mix, entertaining, about 2+ hours. We attended the 3pm show.
