AMT has consistently presented a wide variety of Doo Wop classics! Many original group members perform their well known tunes. Seating is generous, and the staff helpful.

There is not a bad seat in the house. At our last concert, we decided to go at the last minute and sat in the next to the last row. No problems hearing or seeing the stage. Very clean and staff is friendly. Can't wait to see their 2015 schedule.

The music of Andrew Lloyd Webber is fantastic. The professionalism of all the singers, dancers, and orchestra was second to none on the East Coast. What great experience the young children receive being cast in a show of this caliber. The music can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
This theatre is always spotless and has the best seats in which to enjoy any show. I can't wait to see what the original shows they will do from year to year.
The ticket office is also great to work with. They make our job as group leaders easier. Nicole and Meghan do an excellent job.

Last Sunday my husband and I visited the American Music Theatre in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was our first visit and we were very favorably impressed. The theatre is huge (seats 1,000s) and extremely clean. The seats were so comfortable. I wish we had them at home.
The Lennon Sisters (Kathy, Janet and Mimi) opened the show. It's hard to believe these ladies are grandmothers. They looked fabulous! The opening was a salute to their years with Lawrence Welk. Then they sang songs from their days with Andy Williams. Included was a photo montage of their family. The closing number was a dedicated to famous women singing groups. The closing number about the Andrews Sisters brought down the house!
After a 15-minute intermission, the Osmond Brothers came on stage. Very handsome men!
They performed all the hit songs from the 60s and 70s. Flashed on the screen were pictures of the whold Osmond Family. Then the brothers came down into the audience. The women went crazy. Next Jay performed on the drums and the theatre actually rocked.
For the last 10 minutes, the Lennons and Osmonds sang together with a good rousing gospel hymn.
Wonderful show. Top family entertainment!
