Join us to celebrate the holidays - November 30-Dec 3, 7-10, 2017 - with A "Christmas Carol!" It’s the time of year we all need to be reminded of Dickens' redeeming message. This year Rick Farr’s light and lovely songs will be added to John Mortimer's version to create a play with incidental music. A large cast of characters will grace the Playhouse stage with 19th century costumes and speech. Always a delightful retreat during the holidays.


Auditions for the 2017 Christmas shows have been announced. Auditions for A Christmas Carol and A Charlie Brown Christmas will be held September 22 from 7pm-9pm and September 23 from 4pm-9pm. Callbacks for the Christmas shows will be held September 24 from 3pm-6pm if needed.

Hershey Area Playhouse is a true Community Theater.  Our directors, producers, actors, and people behind the scenes are local residents.  

We are always seeking ways to provide high quality entertainment for a very affordable price.  However our ticket prices do not cover all of our operating expenses and we depend on additional support from our friends and neighbors who understand the value of having a local community theater and the opportunities it brings.
