Owner description: The Minnesota Centennial Showboat, docked on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi, makes old time theatre big time fun with its turn-of-the-century interior, vaudevillian entertainment, and timeless tales. Enjoy dinner or a river cruise with your show to enhance this extraordinary theatre experience. Come relive the whimsical times of long ago on the Showboat.

Have been to 3 different shows here. All great, especially Sweeny Todd! Fun venue in a docked boat in the marina across from downtown St Paul. Go to a matinee...you get the most bang for your buck, then you can hike the Lilydale trail along the river afterwards. Handicap accessible..nice afternoon to take your elderly friend or relative for an outing.

I love supporting the arts, so what better way than supporting the University of MN Drama Department while taking in a show? The boat itself is very elegant - like a step back in time, with a sweeping staircase and old-world charm that makes it an "experience" to visit, even without a great show as the cherry on top!

What a charming venue! The playhouse is quaint and comfortable - not a bad seat in the house. We saw "The Match Girl" - a holiday play - beautiful set and costumes; wonderful acting and singing. It was enchanting. The playhouse is most suitable for ages 9 +. Serve mixed drinks, wine, beer and popcorn.

The Showboat is a wonderful intimate place to watch a show. The cast is great, we really loved the oleo's. Also the only theatre I am aware of that offers online ticketing with NO ticket fee, we actually received a discount for booking online.
