The Palace Theater Variety Show


"The Palace Theater" a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit touring Variety Show (circa; 20th. Century) and The Palace Theater Television Show were created and first produced in Chicago IL. in 1999.

The Touring Show (as seen on PBS) and the Television Show (created for a national broadcast television company) are in hiatus.

The touring show has called South Bend IN. home since 2003, and has traveled the Midwest U.S. performing with a blend of music, dance, acrobatics, ventriloquism, juggling, animals, magic, hypnotism, comedy (and LOTS of it) and who knows what else you'll see...

The Palace Theater Variety Show has a vision for success... and that is for our audiences to experience "Magic Moments" of past. Our mission statement is; "To provide the senior community (according to AARP - those over 50 years old) an opportunity to take a nostalgic trip back in time, to present a theatrical performance which includes a variety of entertainment."

We are not character impersonators, we just turn back the hands of time and impersonate those decades, and it's lasting appeal across time, culture and language. If we resemble some past entertainers from that period, that's a bonus!

The Show directs itself to bringing back the historic memories of VARIETY in the 20th. Century, and provides an enlightening experience for audiences to enhance their appreciation of live classic theatre. When you do things a little better and a little different, that's what audiences like. Thousands upon thousands of fine outstanding citizens in our society have been entertained, so PLEASE don't let this opportunity for your group pass you by! 

"The Palace Theater Variety Show" performs at your location, and the length of the show can be tailored to the size of your audience and performance space. From costumes to the backdrops, and even classic style stage lights and props, this show is a MUST to be seen!

The production is available for both private and public functions or events, as well as Corporate Events for sales techniques/industrial shows, etc. How about hosting a "Dinner Theater Evening" for your Club, Church, or Organization?

Cast members have experience in: Motion Pictures and/or Television Performance, Street Performance, Stage Acting, Circus Performance, Radio Announcing, Television Broadcasting (on-air Talent) and Professional Touring Experience.

Sponsorships and Donations are kindly accepted, and are tax deductable.
