We visited this theatre to see "The Little Mermaid". They did a wonderful production. It was very professional with interesting special effects. The seats were great...we were in row E. This is a small theatre so any of the seats would be good.

This place never ceases to amaze me with the professionalism of its performances. It is amazing a small town such as this can pull this off. Each show is a delight.

Enjoyed the play "1776". Nicely restored theater that now has live plays. Refreshments and snacks available. Might be hard to handle if handicapped but you can call ahead to make arrangements. They do have hearing impaired tie in with your cell phone. A nice evening watching a great play.

We go to this theater 3 / 4 times a year. If you like small theater that gives you entertainment at a good place, this is the place to go. Great venue with good restaurant right next door. Great for adult date night.

The Palace opened in the 1920s as a silent movie theater. With the advent of "talkies" the theater was equipped with sound projectors and continued to operate as such until the late 80s or early 90s. The theater closed its doors and was in danger of deterioration until locals, led by the then-county attorney Gene Taylor and his wife Linda... More

One of Georgetown's best features - a real showcase of talent. Well-produced traditional favorites with dedicated local talent. A real bargain in a small-own setting.

We have been attending productions here for many years. Recently , the quality seems to be slipping. For example, the current show, "42nd Street" is poorly cast (but overly fed) for the parts and amateurish, especially in the first act.

The majority of the shows here are really top notch. The actors are not paid, but the quality of the performances is outstanding. Prices are reasonable. The only drawback is the small bathrooms; however, the building is old and there is no room for expansion. Quaint theater with lively and well directed shows.

The Palace Theater on the Square in Georgetown is a thoroughly rejuvinated space with first class productions and moderate prices. The casts are mostly local and unpaid -- they do it for love and experience. A small theater so all seats are good, the productions seem to get better for every show. Highly recommended for a great small theater experience.... More
