Just in time for Halloween, Frankenstein, is the Playhouse’s fall production. Victor Frankenstein wants to create a "new Adam," a man who will change the human race for the better, but his experiment goes awry and tragedy results. Written and directed by Marjorie Bicknell, this adult take on the classic horror tale, based on the works of Mary Shelley, goes back to its roots to find new meaning for the modern world.

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.
