Ordered tickets online, and the pick-up process was really easy! The drink lines were a little crazy, but seemed to be moving. The theater is well maintained, and harks back to a simpler time. The seats were designed for Americans that were a little thinner (early 1900's)... But did not seem to cause any problems for our generation!

The Palace was a great place. We went to see the Divas show. It was great. The atmosphere was incredible. The theater kept it's old majestic look. The seats and lighting was perfect.

I went to this theater with my girlfriend to see their Christmas Carol play.At first we were a little skeptical, but quickly once the play started we were both drawn into both the theater and the story. For a non profit theater they did a great job. I've only seen two or three shows in my life, but I really... More

Went to see Palace production with friends. Friendly staff, on-line ticket purchase made it easy for out-of towners like us. I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. You can order your intermission drinks before the show and they have them set up for you in a special area. Actors and musicians were first rate. Plenty of... More

My husband and I have now attended two shows. Both times, it was a great experience. The shows were amazing, Rent and Spamalot. The parking was easy. There are several nice restaurants in the same block and also some within easy walking distance. We had a fantastic dinner at The Chop House! Food and service there are exceptional. There are...

I thought the people in front of us had terrible BO, turned out to be the theatre! Horrible musty smell that permetated all the way to the balcony. We saw "Spamalot" today -- the lousy sound system ruined most of the dialogue and vocals to the point we could barely understand them (we sat in the second row of the... More

My wife and I saw Richard Marx in concert and we loved the theatre. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the sound system was first rate. It was a tremendous show and experience.

This was our first visit to the Palace theatre where we saw Footloose. The venue was perfect and the cast did an excellent job. We sat a few rows back from the balcony which were great seats. I don't believe you can get a bad seat in the theatre!
