The Palace Theatre has been a major force in Westmoreland County's cultural scene for generations. Opened September 2, 1926, as the Manos Theatre, The Palace Theatre today hosts the widest variety of live entertainment in the area in a beautifully renovated 1369-seat facility, located across from the county courthouse at 21 West Otterman Street in downtown Greensburg, PA.
The Palace Theatre is home to the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra and a regional venue for River City Brass. Productions are mounted on a regular basis by local groups including Laurel Ballet, Stage Right and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region. Concert promoters bring popular entertainers to the Palace such as Buddy Guy, Brian Regan, Robin Trower, Lee Greenwood, Eddie Money, Third Eye Blind, Bill Cosby, The Jonas Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Frankie Avalon, Jackson Browne, The Beach Boys, and Keb Mo.
