TLP Has a New Home
The Lancaster Playhouse is on the move! The remaining shows of the 2019-2020 season will take place in the first floor event space/ballroom of Maria's Mexican Restaurant at 129 East Main Street (the former Elks Lodge). This beautiful, historic space offers TLP room to grow, handicap accessibility, and an actual stage! TLP is thrilled to partner with Maria's to bring theatre back to Main Street in Lancaster.

Season tickets and other ticket sales will not be affected by the move to this new event space. Seating at the new venue will remain the same. Season ticket holder reminders for the March production of Crimes of the Heart will be sent by email or postcard (as designated on your order form) and will include details on drop off and parking for this exciting, new venue.

If you have any questions or concerns about the location change, please call the box office at 740-974-6648 or email us at
TLP's new home is in Maria's Mexican Restaurant at 129 East Main Street.
TLP is happy to remain in the downtown Lancaster area and offer theater goers new opportunities.
