The Palace Theatre is a great venue for live entertainment. We've been to many professional plays, comedians, musicals, etc. Seating is great no matter where you sit. Our favorite is the balcony.

My wife & I and family attended a Student Version of Les Miserables recently at The Palace, my first seating at a terrific theater that is quite similar to Boston's Colonial. Our seats downstairs in the middle of the theater were comfortable with a big-league theater feel. The stage and sound were excellent as was the performance --- very professional... More

Saw the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Good stage construction with very good acting. Lead was a little less than perfect, but hard to meet the expectations of Dolly Parton originating the roll. Little risqué with the locker room scene, but tastefully done. All in all, a great place to see a musical. Their rendition of Joseph and The Amazing... More

Great local place to see a live show or concert. Quality entertainment and you can't go wrong no matter where you sit. They serve beverages and alcohol and you can take it into the theatre in their souvenir cups. Service is great everyone is pleasant and smiling. Bathrooms are convenient and clean. Have seen several shows both with the entire... More

Always impressed by the talent and production and grateful that we have such an historic high quality venue in New Hampshire. It's apparent they work hard on every show and their passion for performance comes through! There is a bar for drinks and light snacks and location is ideal if you want to plan a meal before or after the... More

There really isn't a bad seat in the house. We had tickets for "The 3 Redneck Tenors", which turned out to be a delightfully funny show with some terrific singing. We had bought tickets for the balcony, but just before the performance was to begin, the manager came up and told some of us that if we wanted to move... More

Went to a few events and had a wonderful time. The theatre is the only one remaining has charm, but since old the seats are kinda tight around the bum area.
