The Candlelight Theatre: Dining and Entertainment, Beyond Your Expectations.

The mission of The Candlelight Theatre is to continue the tradition of employing and educating artists by encouraging them to explore and hone their craft through the art of live theatre. Through the unique interaction of these artists with our audiences, we share a commitment to revitalize, inspire, and enrich the community we serve.

    “You get to meet, greet, and know the actors and actresses up close and personal.”

    John Callahan, Season Pass Holder since 2012

    "The end of the afternoon you leave with the great feeling you have enjoyed another theatrical production with your whole family. In a nutshell, you can't beat Candlelight and that's why Nunsense (2015) was our 48th trek down from Northeast Philly, 42 miles each afternoon with our extended family."

    "I have been to several shows here from a drag show to a classic play. The food has always been wonderful and the buffet gives everyone something to enjoy. As for views, given this is a small theater there is not a bad seat. So for a cost effective local show you can not beat this venu!"

    We have seen Annie and Bye bye Birdie and we had a wonderful experience both times. Our kids (7&9) loved it as much as we did. The performances are impressive and having your waiter be in the show is a fun feature. It is worth every penny.
