Just want people to know to support all local theatres. The Palace Theatre is celebrating its 100th birthday and a must destination to see a wonderful company put on a great show that is as good as it gets.

This small theater has world class charm as you would expect in a 100 year old establishment. Enjoyed a gin and tonic in an adult “Sippy cup” during the show. The bartender remembered what all four of us had after intermission-not bad. The acoustics are just fine and the seats a little cramped. All in all, what a nice place... More

We've been to 2 shows and we are going to our third this weekend. It is a comfortable size place with great talent appearing in the shows. We saw Piano Man and the Buddy Holly story there and the talent was great. Prices are very reasonable and there are many fine restaurants in the area if you want a meal... More

YOu can't go wrong at the Palace, beautiful restoration of a classic theater, wonderful acoustics, usually a great line up of shows throughout the year. I've been to many shows here and they are all first rate!

This was our first isit to the Palace Theatre andwe saw the Buddy Holly Show. We were extremely impressed with the content of the show, surprised by the caliber of the actors and the dancers are as good as you'll see on television or in Las Vegas. The acoustics were fine. It was a great experience in a small hometown... More

Newly redone interior, great acoustics, a feeling of plenty of room yet intimate. We saw the Buddy Holly Story and it was excellent! Understand they hire actors from NYC and go there to interview them. The production clearly showed it!!!

If you want to see a nice off Broadway type show the Palace Theatre has some really nice class acts. My wife and I just saw the Buddy Holly show and even-though my wife wasn't sure who Buddy was, she did when we left. An amazing show of talent. Audience inter-action enhanced our experience. You can pre-order drinks before the... More

We've seen a couple shows here. The first time, we watched a ballet from the balcony; never again! Those seats are sized for very, very short people. Lower level seating is fine and you will emnjoy the show. The interior of the theatre is gorgeous.

Have seen two concerts here - KISS tribute band and Jose and Patti (phenomenal pair -- people on their feet ). I have seen too many plays and all very good seats, friendly people and awesome entertainment and parking across the street.
