The Palace Theater's History
Registered as a National Historic treasure, the Palace Theater was opened on January 28, 1922 to great fanfare. The elegant lobbies, crystal chandeliers, gold detailing, along with its Broadway-sized stage, quickly established this theater as the gem of Waterbury and one of the finest theaters in New England, if not the country.
Today, this exquisite complex showcases a performance schedule boasting professional Broadway tours, rock concerts, educational programs, family entertainment and much more.
