Festival News: RoSfest Moves To The Majestic Theater

Posted on Friday, August 21 @ 06:58:18 UTC by nightowl

George Roldan, festival organizer announced: "RoSfest is excited to announce that we are moving our festival to the Majestic Theater in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The town is located midway between many major cities including Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. It is serviced by 4 major airports within a 75 mile radius, the closest being the Harrisburg international Airport (35 miles), Baltimore-Washington International Airport (55 miles), Reagan National Airport (68 miles), and Dulles International Airport (75 miles).

"The Majestic Theater is an elegantly decorated theater with 815 comfortable seats, a world-class stage, and modern technical facilities. Its features include a balcony, a great view from every seat, accessibility, and plenty of space for vendors and activities.

"The town boasts many watering holes and great restaurants within walking distance of the theater, including the Appalachian Brewery Company. Adequate parking for all of our guests is available in a garage next to the theater. We feel that we have found our permanent home and we know that everyone attending RoSfest 2010 will feel the magic of this lovely town and the Majestic Theater. All the information, including pictures of the theater, is posted and available on the RoSfest website at rosfest.com/Majestic_Theater.htm.

"We have also secured two hotels for our guests. The historic Gettysburg Hotel right next door to the theater has available 50 rooms per night for the three-night performance at a group rate of $139.00 This is a convenience that is unmatched, but the number of rooms is not sufficient as our main host hotel. Fortunately, we were able to secure a group rate of $114.00 at a hotel that can accommodate our entire group and their needs 5 miles from the theater, the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center. All of the bands will be staying at the Eisenhower, and all after-hours events will be held there. There are also many other hotels in the Gettysburg area to choose from with rates as low as $75.00 per night. All the information is posted and available on the RoSfest website at rosfest.com/Lodging.htm. I would make reservations as soon as possible, as the rooms available at the group rate will sell out quickly.

"What I liked best about the new theater is the way it took me back to the days of the Colonial Theater, but with a complete and beautiful restoration. In addition, the town has the charm and amenities of Phoenixville and Glenside combined. I'm sure that RoSfesters will be happy when they come to Gettysburg in 2010 and I have a feeling that it will be magical.

"Look for band updates in the next few weeks. Gold seat tickets will go on sale November 7th 2009 at 12 Noon EST. All tickets are reserved seating. The date for Regular seat ticket sales will be announced soon. A seating chart for The Majestic is on the RoSfest website.

"We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our friends and associates at The Keswick Theater. They have been nothing but wonderful for the last two years, and we have been proud and thankful to call Glenside and its lovely Keswick Theater our home.

"See you all at our new home on April 30th, May 1st and 2nd, 2010."
