Georgetown Palace Theatre
810 S. Austin Avenue, Georgetown, Texas 78626
The Georgetown Palace Theatre is a model of a successful community theatre. The staff are dedicated to providing quality and affordable entertainment and educational opportunities in the performing arts. The Palace is home to a year-round season of frequently sold-out live theatre productions. The quality of the acting, directing, and production values of past shows has earned consistently impressive reviews.
The Palace’s new season will include seven full productions. In addition to that main stage lineup, the theatre has put together fun-filled musical performances and non-musical plays that are sure to entertain.
History matters in Georgetown, and the Palace has held a place in the city’s heart since 1926. Built in the downtown Square, it opened originally to show silent films. The theatre is the only Art Deco period building in Georgetown, and the marquee is original to the theatre. The former movie house was renovated and in 2001 opened as a live theatre venue.
The Palace’s education program draws students from across Central Texas; it offers classes, workshops, and training programs for aspiring actors, dancers, and singers from four years old to adults, and is currently engaged in a $2.5 million campaign to build a new Children’s Theatre and Education Center in the Cultural District with a 200-seat flexible configuration theatre, dance studio, classrooms, and more. The Palace education program is staffed by a cast of teaching artists who have worked in high school drama departments, Central Texas theatres, and on Broadway.
The Georgetown Palace Theatre’s performances and education program are a gem for residents and visitors alike to enjoy. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2 PM unless otherwise noted. Palace Theatre productions do require a ticket.
