“A Wonderful Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Our most recent visit to the Fulton was to see Young Frankenstein. It was bawdy and very funny- personally, though, I wouldn't take a pre-teen or young teen to it. The actors and actresses were a delight to watch. We have been to the Fulton for many productions over the past five years, and each production was a real treat. Always very well acted, excellent choreography and wonderful performances. The theater itself is very ornate and beautiful. It is on the small size, but that adds even more to its charm.

“High Quality Shows, resonable prices, great times!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

We have now seen 4 shows in the past year at the Fulton. They quality of the shows is superb. The sets are well made, the acting and singing is excellent. I have seen traveling Broadway shows in Hershey that are not half as good for twice the money. The Lady In Black show had special effects. Arsenic and Old Lace was so funny. I cannot wait to go to the next Fulton show.

“"Arsenic and Old Lace", a killer affair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

The Fulton Theatre's production of Kesselring's comedy play "Arsenic and Old Lace" was a perfect entertainment. The Fulton took me back to 1939 and brought the lovely spinsters Abby and Martha to life on stage in a most genteel, but deadly fashion; they were wonderful. The entire cast was fantastic. What a pleasure to watch a play with no profanity or innuendo. It was a high point of our latest visit to Fulton Steamboat Inn. Of the many spots to visit in beautiful Lancaster County the quaint, charming and welcoming theatre is a must see.
