The Fulton theater is a beautiful, historic venue that produces fantastic shows. Prices are very reasonable and it is a true local treasure. The stage productions are wonderfully done. In addition, the theater provides tours, workshops and other great activities.

This is my view from the third row up in the mezzanine. Don't sit first or second row because it can be hard to see over or through the railing if you are shorter or have children. The cast and stage were phanomonal. I also saw Footloose earlier in the year.

I the 35 years I have lived in Lancaster I have seen the improvements in the Fulton theater. A top to bottom renovation some years back made it much friendlier to today's larger people. It is the oldest continuously operating theater in the US. The quality of the shows at the Fulton both theater and symphony are as good as... More

The Fulton Theatre is an historical attraction, but it's main value is that it's a great stage and layout for shows.

As an example, the last show I saw here was Disney's Beauty... More

Loved it!!!! Cannot wait to go back. It is a beautiful old/ smaller theater but the experience is spectacular!!!! Acoustics are phenomenal in the building as well as the architecture, design and decorations. Saw Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Very well done. Only draw back is the ladies room stalls are tight but the sink area in roomy.

LOVE this place. They are tasteful yet capture your imagination and the plays (all five) were a delight. Parking is easy nearby but the restaurants close by are a little disappointing. We used to go to the American Music Theater but no more. AMT was so loud in their shows and the performances so disappointing that we have stopped our... More
