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.

What a treat! We saw "The Taffetas" and were delighted with the level of talent, the set, the choreography.....definitely recommend catching a show there if you are in the area!

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.

The Showboat is a lovely converted old paddleboat located on the shores of the Mississippi. My family and friends saw five musicals this past summer and were very impressed with each and every one. The acting is top notch, the music and dancing great, and the casting was right on. Can't wait until next season!
