“American Music Theatre”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This was my first visit to the American Music Theatre. Tickets are not that expensive and there's not a bad seat in the house. They offer all types of entertainment. Employees are very pleasant. Free parking and easy access to the highway.

“FANTASTIC BROADWAY SHOW”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This show was outstanding as usual everything was great , I have been to many Broadway shows and this show is just as good if not better. Great voices ( Wes, sings bring him home - will melt your heart Angela sings phantom WOW goose bumps, what a voice, Julie sing defying gravity better than the original John, Kristen outstanding & the 4 seasons song close your eyes and it's Frankie & the gang) Great dancers ( Missy, Jordan, Corey, Holly ) & with the kids in the show, just perfect. All in a beautiful roomy Theatre.
Ms. Andrea McCormick who used to be in the show EXCELLENT JOB putting it all together
Do yourself a HUGE favor and go see this show - Trust me!!!

“great shows”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Saw 2 great shows. In apr 2012 we saw the Gaither Vocal Band and in April 2013 we saw a production called Broadwat Then & Now. Both Shows were excellent. We left wanting more. They were nice clean shows and both were very entertaining. Highly recommended.

“Great place to see a show.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Whether you are seeing a widely known act or seeing one of AMT's original shows, I don't see how you could walk away disappointed. We've seen one of their Christmas shows, an original show called Route 66 and last year we saw the Gaither Vocal Band. All of which were entertaining, family-friendly and no matter where we sat, we had a great view of the stage.

Last week, we had the great pleasure to see their newest original show called "Broadway Now and Forever". It covered great songs from some of the best Broadway plays. You will be entertained from the rising of the curtain to the last curtain call. There are soft, beautiful numbers, powerful voices on the soloists, a great band that will have you clapping and doing a lot of toe-tappin'!!

This theater has become part of our to-do list when we visit Lancaster County.
