Great way to spend an evening

We always go to a couple of shows each year. The list for summer 2016 looks fun. Cannot wait to see a musical.

There is not a bad seat in the house. Very quaint and comfortable setting for excellent viewing of first class plays and musicals. "Cats" was absolutely outstanding. It was almost as if we were onstage with the performers,and their rendition was remarkable.

For the price it is what it is. The showboat is in definite need of maintenance but it is located on the riverfront, which is a great place to take the family for an afternoon. The prices for shows are no issue and they have summer camp for kids interested in theater.

Saw 'Wonderful Town,' and it was a great show. Surprisingly good leads, well choreographed. Obviously, it isn't Broadway, but it's well worth the money. A fun show on an old river showboat!

A cute old showboat with decent entertainment. It would be better if there was good available. The price is a little high.

The admission is a little high and parking can be bad, but the shows are well worth the money. I can not wait for the holiday play to open, I will be there with my children!

I have to admit that I was hesitant to go here at first. I grew up close to Chicago and was used to quality theatre and had had some bad theatre experiences since moving out to the sticks. The Showboat turned out to be a great time. We saw "Forever Plaid" and the cast and crew were top notch. Bravo... More

We sent the children to summer acting camp. The counselors were fantastic, SO positive! Great confidence boost and all three of the children had a great time. Great show and great experience.

Clinton is luck to have such a resource as the show boat theater. We went to the Christmas play last year and enjoyed it very much! I recommend the show boat to everyone.
