“a great slice of Americana”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

I always think of the Opera House whenever I think of Lancaster. It is Old Lancaster NY, not to be confused with all the newer plasticised subdivsions that have proliferated this once cozy little village. The Opera house is like turning back the pages of time. It offers great theatrical fair both local and imported and with it's rich wooden interior it is accoustically superior to many so called modern buildings. The stage is racked fro better visuals too. It is worth going there just to see the theatre regardsless of what is playing and here is the insider tip: The seats in the balcony are in many respects better than on the main level.

Love the Opera house! Great seating in the balcony. Difficult to see though on the main floor.

“Spectacular! A great experience of family fun!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

I saw High School Musical, Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer, and Nunsensations here. There is a reason why I have kept going back, its wonderful! The plays tend to have a lot of truly wonderful music and the acting is clearly the result of the crucial combination of great acting and directing. My little sister always loves going there and frequently brings friends who love it too! Not only are all of the shows good but some are so amazing I have to see them multiple times! Its really fantastic here!!
