I've attended shows here for the last 8 or 9 years. Some years I've been a season subscriber. I have never been to a show that was less than excellent. Given that the ticket prices are under $20 you can't beat it. For touring shows...More

This is a theater with seats on 3 sides and it is open seating so get there early for the best seats. Parking is not easy as this is in a development and there didn't seem to be separate parking for the theater - or...More

All the plays we saw there were very good. It is a rather small place, with good shows. Good seating. Can"t say nothing bad about the place. Will return. Very professional.

Attended my first show today, A Christmas Carol, at the Hershey Area theater. Seating is stadium style so I do agree with the other reviews that it is difficult to get a bad seat. That being said, the 2nd rows are the same level as...More

I enjoyed this theatre very much. The stage design is a thrust, meaning you can sit on three sides and still see a great deal of the action. It is small and intimate and all actors and crew members are hired locally and often times...More
