Lancaster Marionette Theatre Reviews & Ratings

  • I'm going to be honest...I was really skeptical. I had nothing to do on a Saturday and my girlfriend suggested we try it. I was dreading it because all I could think was "this is going to be weird." I'm happy to report, I was mostly wrong. Was it a bit...strange? Absolutely. Was it my cup of tea? Not typically. Did I have fun? No doubt about it! This is a great experience and the owner is the talent behind the puppets. He is engaging and skilled in his craft and puts on a great performance. If you're looking for something outside of "the usual," then go for this unusual, quirky, and charming experience. I can't say I'll go back anytime soon, but someday I will return. Give it a try. You might be surprised!

  • Love this place and all the love and talent that goes with it! I'll be back!

  • This was a really fun family outing. You want to come early enough for pre-show tour. He is a great performing and really engaging. I didn’t know what to expect, but would come back for future shows.

  • An exquisite gem in the heart of Lancaster, this theater for both adults and children is at the highest levels of artistry. It's puppet museum is stunning, the shows are short but brilliant, and the visuals are unforgettable. Don't miss this Lancaster treasure!

  • I had a wonderful time. I found this little theater on a whim on Google looking for something special to go to, and it took me to this magical little esoteric theater with cherubs on the ceiling and gilded red velvet couches. It is covered in marionettes! I was immediately deeply in love. I had the pleasure of watching the sherlock show, and it was so enchanting and mesmerizing. This was such a treat, I can't wait to go back. Something about this theater feels like a magnet.
