We frequent the theater several times yearly and bring out of town guests for shows as well. The theater has remained consistently clean and in beautiful condition for years and years. Tickets are very fairly priced for some extremely impressive talents! The shows are top quality; sets and costumes are appropriate, and the overall entertainment is truly comparable to some... More

This is one of the best shows we have seen at the Fulton. The set was amazing! Every cast member did an incredible job!

My wife and I attended a showing of Beauty and the Beast last night at the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster PA. The music, dancing and acting was incredible. Character costumes were out of this world. This was over first visit to the Fulton and it won't be our last. As a matter of fact, we purchased tickets last night at... More

This is only the second time we have visited the theater, but it is so totally worth a trip. We recently got to see "Beauty and the Beast" and it was spectacular! We were invited last year to see Elf with our new daughter in laws parents. Fortunately, they included us again this year! Both plays were excellent. While I... More

We booked an evening at the Fulton without paying much attention to WHAT was playing. Turned out it was Beauty and the Beast so we expected a house full of kids dressed in princess or beast costumes - however there were only a hand full of kids in an otherwise full house. Lovely musical, lovely play, lovely evening! PS: Gallery... More

Ive been going to this theater since I was a little kid, but admittedly have only gone maybe 3 times in the last couple years. Boy am I glad I went tonight. The show was absolutely amazing- just when I thought I knew everything fulton has to offer, I now was shown their 4th floor, where a small (about 60... More

We have seen many shows here and have loved every single one. This theatre could be on Broadway- so beautiful and the plays they pick are always ones we want to go see. I wish there was a higher rating- cant wait to see the next show.

Wow! Billy Elliott could not have been better. Broadway quality cast and staging. The venue has a small feel and the staff is so kind.

Thanks to the Trip Advisor contributors, I got great seats for the show. I don't think there is really a bad seat in the house, but I opted for the first row parquet which was highly recommended by many of you. The theater is very appealing. They do need to add bathrooms though. Public parking garages very nearby, and reasonably... More

We are Busy working parents and as much as we would like to say that we make date nights a priority, it just doesn't seem to happen. Thats where the Fulton comes in! We have gotten season tickets for the last few years because it "forces us" to have a date night by having pre-purchased tickets to a show on... More
