“Not to be missed”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

It's not Broadway, but it is great deal more enjoyable. Need some great entertainment along with the charm of beautiful Historic Rose Valley PA. I grew up just a couple of miles away in the not so affluent area, Chester PA. This was my first visit in almost 50 years to this Theater.

The show Run for you Wife was just so enjoyable. The cast did a terrific job, dialog is based on timing and movement. They all did it well. Simultaneous events on stage, with the actors portraying to be in different locations - all in one set - I can't understand how they can concentrate on there lines with so much happening..

Seating is better than the balcony in any older Broadway play house. Free Parking - just steps away from the entrance. Cars are directed into the lot by what turned out to be a major cast member. My best guess is they hold about 150 people, all the seats were filled with people who appreciated the performance. We were about the middle row of 1 - 12 and the six of us had center seating. Actually row F - possibly the best seats in the house.

Treat yourself to a show - Tickets were under $ 30.00

“Wonderful historic theatre”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Hederow Theatre has been around many years and it is well worth the trip to Rosé Valley to
attend a performance. We love their yearly productions of British farces by Ray Cooney. The
theatre, itself, is an old mill that has been totally renovated. The staff is professional and very
welcoming.

“Great Little Theater”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

It is hard to describe just how magical this little theater is. It has benefitted from the work of Wharton G. Esherick, who was a wonderful woodworker in the 40's & 50's. Wortha trip just for the edcore!

“Charlottes Web”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

I took my daughter here to see Charlottes Web and we absolutely loved it. I almost went back to see it again. The theater has the greatest old world charm, and the cast gave out lemonade and animal crackers after the show. Just lovely!
