The Palace Theatre is a performing arts and stage production center located in the capital city of Manchester in New Hampshire.

Like real-life drama, the theatre had its own share of ups and downs. It opened with great fanfare on April 9, 1915. It has hosted several top performers off that time. These celebrities include the likes of Harry Houdini, the Marx Brothers, Bob Hope and Jimmy Durante. However, with the onset of silent movies, public attendance dwindled. The theater suffered disuse and calamities.

It became a movie house, a classroom for New Hampshire College, and a warehouse. It was not until 1974 that the theater came back to life.
At present, this 870-seat theater hosts stage productions such as concerts, recitals, magical acts, comedy acts and local community stage productions.
