Dubbed “the most impressive theater in Pennsylvania,” Hershey Theater is the area’s golden center for all things performing arts. Performances include touring Broadway shows, classical music and dance attractions and world-renowned entertainers. Whether guests are looking to catch a show or learn more about the theater itself, it is a stop worth visiting. Catch one of the kid-friendly acts and then take a behind-the-scenes tour, available on Fridays and Sundays. It’s always fun to see what happens behind the curtain. Hershey Theater recently underwent a $3 million dollar renovation and has been restored to the magnificence of its opening night back in 1933.

We risked winter weather to head to this theater on New Year's Eve for Shrek the MusicalFlag review
Shrek is part of our family history, as the first official date movie for my handsome hubby and me (pre-marriage.) Now we see the movies and have seen the musical, and enjoy making Shrek memories together as a family. The weather cooperated terrifically, and we enjoyed the theater and the musical! A young man local to our home, Lucas Poost, played Shrek!
Tips for Families
The more you know before you go the better prepared you can be. Due to a New Year's Eve event in the area, we were nearly late to the show as our pre-planned route was partially closed between Hersheypark and the theater! Getting out afterward and back to our hotel was also a challenge for the same reason.
