This is a small, intimate venue that seems to be very old, but well maintained. Seating seemed a little larger than in most theaters (I'm tall!) and was quite comfortable. Staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful.

I grew up in this town and this theater. When I was young, we used to go to the movies on Saturday in this theater. In the past years, I have watched both of my sons graduate in this theater. Last week, I went to see Brian Regan in this theater. It is a beautiful theater inside, they really have... More

This theater is a nice venue for a wide variety of concerts and shows. Hagerstown is about 75-miles NW of DC (about a hour and a half with no traffic). It's an easy, but out of the way drive. The theater is not designed for optimal viewing, hence the 3* rating. We sat on the balcony and had problems seeing... More

We saw Gordon Lightfoot here, and it was a great venue for him. Everything was very good. The staff was friendly and professional. The theater is in great shape. It looked they have plenty of parking. We walked from our hotel. I would have no problem recommending or coming back here.

Nice accommodations and parking was very close by. The facility is very historical and well kept. Staff was very friendly and professional. Venue was great for the show and the prices for the refreshments were very reasonable.

Only in Hagerstown maybe twice over the years, I decided to make a night of this old historic little town, and see Vickie Lawrence. Theatre is very nice and small for a theatre in comparison to NYC theatres, interesting seating though, nice staff. I would definitely come back and see another famous person at this venue.

Recently, my husband and I saw The Texas Tenors" along with the Maryland Symphony Orchestra. What an experience. I had never even heard of them before. Just an outstanding performance by both singers and orchestra. A nice woman sat next to me from Virginia who had never been to the Maryland Theater before. She remarked at how stunning it is....

we drove more than an hour to see a singing trio perform. what we saw was a full symphony orchestra, at times, overpowering the singers to the point where we couldn't hear the guys sing. we do enjoy symphony concerts but this time they needed to stay in the background and muted. we will continue to follow this trio but...

Have wonderful shows there with good talent. Great painted inside and the new seats feel great. Bring is some good outside shows so you don't have to drive to the city to see.

Have wanted to see a symphony orchestra for a long time and got the opportunity to see the Maryland Symphony perform "Rhapsody in Blue" and "New World Symphony" on April 9th....Loved the performance and the venue...Acoustics were amazing...Seats were a bit uncomfortable after a while, but this can be overlooked when everything is taken in as a whole....Building is beautiful...just...
