This historic theater (1915) suffered many up and downs: (flood 1980) and fire (1984) was beautifully restored and became a 834-seat professional performing arts center. Tickets are reasonably priced!

Want a fabulous evening of music, dance, nostalgia for the rock and roll era? Hurry up and go see Grease! Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and the whole gang put on a hand-jiving performance. We laughed and smiled all the way home! Brilliant!

Manchester's only performance venue. Rehabed in the 80's but in need of a re-do. Classic performance venue. Manchester just needs to re-invest into its arts center as the palace is looking worn and the seats uncomfortable

As the two previous answers mentioned, the Palace has complete handicapped access. I have not seen any special ticket pricing though. Please call the box office for more inromation.

It is not acceptable to take any kind of pictures at theatre events. That is out of respect to the actors. They do provide pictures based on the theme of the performance in the entrance. My partner and I took pictures int... More

Conservatively casual. My husband always wears a sport shirt or golf shirt. I mostly wear slacks and a sweater or blouse. You will find a spectrum of attire there.
