Welcome to Princess Theatre: Center for the Performing Arts

Your Experience Starts Here.

                   Safety First!

Friends, we are aware of concerns about COVID-19 numbers and the delta variant. We want to personally assure you that the Princess Theatre places your safety and well-being first and foremost.

The members of our staff are fully vaccinated, have temperature checks, maintain social distancing and wear masks while carrying out their duties. We also encourage our guests to wear masks and keep a respectful social distance from other patrons not in your household. Our sanitization and cleaning measures are stringent, thorough and exceed government guidelines. 

Some artists have additional COVID-19 precautionary requirements for attendance to their shows. Currently these artists include Bruce Hornsby and The Wood Brothers. Both concerts will require a negative COVID test no more than 72 hours prior to performance date to attend. If you wish to bypass this requirement, patrons can present proof of vaccination instead. If you wish to receive a refund because you do not want to meet these requirements, please send your request to: [email protected] 

Let's work together to keep the music playing!

Your patronage is so appreciated!

"This is a great old theatre. Reminded me of times past. I was here due to an auction, but was able to walk through the entire place. This place would be a great place just to visit and if you have a reason to go to it, go. Walk around and explore."

"It was a lovely, loving, lively event filled with kind people, delicious food, and good music at a great venue. Really enjoyed all the roaring 20s attire in honor of the 100 year anniversary of the theater."
