On Wednesday, March 22nd, eighth-grade students, as part of their theater arts curriculum, under the leadership of Mrs. Nan Kaestner, visited Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The students were treated to an extensive walking tour of the historic theatre and a brilliant performance of The Wiz. The Fulton Opera House first opened in 1852 and is the nation’s oldest continuously operating theatre. The Fulton is one of only eight theatres to be named a National Historic Landmark. The history of the Fulton Theatre chronicles the evolution of the American stage. Many of the “greats” of the American and International stage have performed at The Fulton throughout its history and that tradition continues today. In 1995 the Fulton completed an extensive renovation of the historic building and during COVID, the theatre expanded its footprint to encompass an entire city block.
