The American Music Theatre is on Route 30, east of Lancaster, PA. It is located across the highway from the Cracker Barrel in the Rockvale Square Outlets. This is a beautiful theatre with a good assortment of celebrity shows and musical productions produced in house. The Christmas Show is always outstanding. The theatre has an excellent sound system, comfortable seating,... More

Ben and Mrs Too have attended performances by touring artists at American Music Theater before, but never to see and hear the resident company. Their Christmas Gala presentation was absolutely wonderful. Despite a spirited but somewhat disjointed opening, the matinee event grew on us steadily and we headed off to dinner in high spirits. For us, a high point was... More

We went to the Elvis Birthday Bash and Elvis Gospel Show. Both were great - this is our third year to visit AMT for these shows. Had a great time. Theater is well laid out. Seats are comfortable (these were about 2 hr long shows). Sound and lighting was very well done. Ushers are very helpful. Concession stand was reasonably... More

Christmas show was superb...wonderful mix of secular and sacred. The dancers and soloists were top of the line. The dramatic ending with the Hallelujah Chorus was absolutely fabulous. There were 16 of us...a family...ranging in age from 73 to 16 and we ALL loved it!

We've been here several times to see Kenny Rogers, sitting in various seats. Also love their Christmas Show. Bathrooms are large and accommodating. Refreshments are affordable and can be taken into the theater. There are cup holders in front of the seats and seats are comfortable. The ONLY drawback is trying to leave after the show. One must enter and... More

I've been to this theater twice now with my family and have had an excellent experience both times. The theater offers mainly conservative family friendly entertainment that caters largely to a seniors crowd or families with pre-teen children. The annual Christmas show is excellent with some of the best live music I've ever heard in addition to high production value... More

This show particularly hit home for the previous week, we just visited NYC. How cool was that. We had orchestra seating, rows L & M, very very good seats. Very clean theatre and the Christmas decorations were over the top. A lot of photo opportunities. The music/singing was broadway comparable and for half the price.
