Venue Information

The Venue

American Music Theatre stages over 200 live performances each year, from celebrity concerts to children’s events, and of course, our original AMT Christmas Show. Our 1,600-seat auditorium is built for comfort, with wide aisles and plenty of legroom so guests can sit back, relax and enjoy the shows! Our state-of-the-art sound and lighting mean you won’t miss a note of music or a moment of action on the stage.


Live entertainment should always feel this good.

When we built the theatre in 1997, we chose to limit our seating capacity to 1,600 seats instead of the recommended 2,000 the space could accommodate. It was important for us to provide wider seats, additional legroom and broader aisles for the comfort of our guests.

Our Staff

The Heart of American Music Theatre

While our venue is a clean and modern building with a beautiful lobby and best-in-class amenities, what truly makes AMT stand out from others is the people you find working here. From our dedicated parking lot team and friendly box office associates to the smiling faces of our ushers and concessions personnel, we place a premium on human connections and incredible customer service. Call us old-fashioned. It’s just our way of expressing our sincere gratitude to each and every guest who walks through our doors – because at AMT – all we do begins and ends with you!


Accurate, clear, immersive sound.

Unparalleled sound is at the heart of every AMT performance. Partnering with industry-leading professionals in live entertainment audio, our theatre boasts an incredible sound system designed using spatial data points to custom-craft speaker enclosures tailored to our very room. From precise measurements to custom-milled, tone-wood speaker horns, the details have been obsessed over to ensure every seat in the house is reserved for the discerning audiophile.

AMT’s History

Family-owned and independently operated since 1997.

More than 25 years ago, three local friends-turned-business-partners took an unexpected idea and turned it into reality. American Music Theatre was built with the belief that Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, although not a major metro destination, deserved big-city, live entertainment. The partners also knew that applying the core values of respect, service and integrity would help AMT rise to become a nationally recognized player in the live entertainment industry.

It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but with a little opportunity, a lot of determination, and mountains of faith, we are proud to continue to serve the patrons, staff and artists who have made AMT what it is today.
