Have seen multiple performances here over the years. Rate them good to excellent. Impressed by the talent they recruit for musicals. I recommend supporting this live theater that brings plays we want to see to our local area.

We have enjoyed the shows at EPAC over the years even when it was the former "unheated & unairconditioned" building. The new, more comfortable facilities are really great.

Comfortable seating in climate-controlled theater. Ed. Fernandez is on par with Broadway directors and recruits outstanding talents. Recently, ''Elephant Man'' was an outstanding show, hailed by many as better than the movie. ''Spamalot"... More

Every performance has been a very enjoyable experience. Can not go wrong with this entertainment. The acting and singing has been outstanding for a local playhouse

The plays here NEVER DISSAPOINT , and The Elephant man was no exception. The lead actor was phenomenal, the supporting actors were superb. A gem of a theater in Ephrata, Pa.

Saw the opening night of Spam-o-lot. It was a excellent version of the play. The cast was strong with many well perform acts. I was very surprised that there is no stage. This was my first time here and I would definitely go back.
