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.

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
