Palace Theatre

Celebrate the performing arts in our beautiful 834-seat historic theatre.

Our History

The Palace Theatre is a non-profit performing arts center that hosts its own professional company, youth, and teen programs as well as presenting acts. We are committed to achieving our mission through preserving the historic facilities of the theatre, responding creatively to the cultural and entertainment needs of the community, and governing in a fiscally responsible and strategic manner.

Our beautiful 834-seat theatre is the only one of its kind in this area and the staff who work here are committed to preserving it. All administrative offices are located adjacent to the theatre, including two large dance studios used by all performers of The Palace Theatre.


Check out the variety of live events happening at the Palace, Rex, and Spotlight Room using our new calendar feature!
