Showplace is wonderful for bringing in great talent. It is reasonably priced and right in the heart of downtown, grab dinner and catch a show.

This theatre is premiere. All seats are comfortable, and good. None are too far away or lack good acoustics. One person shows, up to orchestral sized performances come across beautifully.
