"Miracle on 34th Street", rounds out Hershey Area Playhouse’s 2016 season. When a nice old man who claims to be Santa Claus is institutionalized as insane, a young lawyer decided to defend him by arguing in court that he is the real thing. Lois Heagy, an experienced actor and director in central Pennsylvania, will join Hershey Area Playhouse for the first time as director of this heartwarming and familiar story.

Coming in November!

Once again, at our Playhouse, musicians from Hershey High School and Milton Hershey High School will share the stage. Milton Hershey High School's New Horizons vocal group will perform selected Broadway and popular tunes. The Milton Hershey School Guitar Ensemble will perform. The Hershey High School String Ensemble will perform and all three groups will together perform for the finale.

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.
