Holiday Preview

A tale as Old as Time…seems to be on the rise lately with the hugely popular and classic Disney tale of Beauty and the Beast coming back to the big screen this March. But, did you know that you can catch the timeless tale and all of its musical glory at the Fulton Theater right now.


Yes, that’s right we’re joining the Christmas bandwagon and hitting the holiday preview blog a bit earlier this year! Mainly because I want to give as many people as I can the chance to book their rooms and buy their tickets to some of the greatest shows and activities Lancaster has to offer this Holiday season! So if you’re not into animated clocks, chipped teacups, and happily ever afters (you scrooge) then this blog will guide you in the direction of other Christmas merriment in and around Berks and Lancaster counties!

Let’s talk shows, because who doesn’t love a great theatrical production at Christmas.  Take a look at the upcoming holiday season productions and be sure to click on the links so you can find out more box office information!
