On a Winter's Night was such a professional production. A great Christmas spirit throughout this historic venue. I recommend sitting downstairs, where the new seats are. The parking can be annoying if you arrive late, go early and have a dinner downtown and enjoy the local flavor. I also enjoyed Chorus Line musical earlier this year. Go online www.palacetheatre.org. and... More

Pre theatre we had a lovely meal in the Kitchenette, across the road were we had 1 bottle of wine between the 4 of us. However, when we arrived at the theatre,... More

Had a wonderful time attending 2 children performances this summer (wish I could have seen all of them). I saw The Little Mermaid and Beauty & the Beast ---loved them both. Both performances were so good that the time flew by-approximately 45 minutes perfect for all ages---the actors were amazing- wish we could have this all year round especially winter... More

We have attended many events at the Palace and each time has been a wonderful experience. The facility is very old but well maintained. Parking is convenient at a nearby parking garage.
