We have enjoyed the shows at EPAC over the years even when it was the former "unheated & unairconditioned" building. The new, more comfortable facilities are really great. The shows are always top quality. Just be aware that the experience is not what you are used to having in a large theater. The seating is on three sides of the... More

Ephrata Performing Arts Center (EPAC to locals) offers a wondrous array of theater offerings -- dramas, musicals, one-night guest artist performances -- and tickets are quite reasonable. Comfortable seating in climate-controlled theater. Ed. Fernandez is on par with Broadway directors and recruits outstanding talents. Recently, ''Elephant Man'' was an outstanding show, hailed by many as better than the movie. ''Spamalot"... More

Every performance has been a very enjoyable experience. Can not go wrong with this entertainment. The acting and singing has been outstanding for a local playhouse

We were given tickets to go see Shrek the Musical. Outstanding performance. The actors seemed to really love their characters and even involved some of the children from the audience. They used the aisles and empty seats, not just the stage. Will be looking forward to next season.

The plays here NEVER DISSAPOINT , and The Elephant man was no exception. The lead actor was phenomenal, the supporting actors were superb. A gem of a theater in Ephrata, Pa.

Saw the opening night of Spam-o-lot. It was a excellent version of the play. The cast was strong with many well perform acts. I was very surprised that there is no stage. This was my first time here and I would definitely go back.

EPAC is an asset to the regional community. Great selection of shows, for all ages. Creative sets, comfortable seats, and a top notch crew from actors, to set people, to the box office. Support EPAC and keep it strong for years to come!

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful live theater in my back yard. This performing arts center is open year round and I can always find at least one show to go to each year. The ticket price is extremely reasonable and there isn't a bad seat in the (small) house. This is certainly a place worth visiting... More
