Lancaster Opera House is a hidden gem. They offer plays, musicals, summer camp and concerts. You can rent the space for a wedding or special occasion.

Asked for the "best seat" and sat in the balcony 2nd row center. Good view of the stage. (People in the first row moved as the railing was right in their... More

The opera house is attached to Town Hall, the theatre is located on the 2nd floor of Town Hall. You can park in the parking lot that is behind the town hall. It is a small theatre, so don't except something huge like an opera house. The stage itself is tiny for theatre performance and there isnt a lot of... More

This is our second time there as we travel thru . They had the Story of Rock and Roll and is as fabulous . Hated to see it stop for the night . The ticket prices are cheap enough for these shows . I do recommend them .

Great venue for seeing just about any type of show. Reasonably priced, never far away from the stage, and production quality that exceeds all other loach theaters. The best improvement would be to have quality restaurants on Central.

This historically-correctly refurbished showcase occupies 2 floors of the Lancaster, NY. Town Hall. It showcases a wide variety of professional and amateur concerts, productions and special events that have been attracting patrons for several decades. There is something for everyone here at reasonable prices.

This is a step back in time when you visit the opera house. During the second world war, my mother rolled bandages for the Red Cross in this historic building! Little theatre with a big hit. This is such a value for your money! Enjoy the raked stage. It has a slight tilt to the stage, higher in the back,... More

came here for local production of "mice & men," quite satisfying... a tremendously architectural old building but with some parking issues and acoustics, as well... nice staff, reasonably prices, reasonably good seatings and sightlines
