I was recently thrilled to perform at Dawson City's newly-refurbished Palace Grand Theatre in Canada's Yukon Territories, and highly recommend this site for visitors to Dawson.
The original theatre was built in 1889 by a Buffalo Bill-type showman named Arizono Charlie Meadows. He was one of the many American adventurers who headed for Dawson City during the gold rush of the late 1800s, but he found much more money in entertainment than in panning for gold.
A variety of vaudevill and legitimate presentations have graced the stage of this theatre since its inception. One can still feel the presence of the ghosts of dance-hall girls, miners and writers such as Jack London and Robert Service who attended performances and huge parties and dances given in this wonderful hall.
Reminiscent of Washington's infamous Ford's Theatre in style and atmosphere, The Palace Grand has daily tours by costumed locals who do a fine job of sharing the history and importance of this Dawson City focal point.
If you're anywhere near Dawson, don't miss the chance to see a show or take the tour at The Palace Grand Theatre. While you're there, say hello to the ghosts for me.
