This stage is a wonderful venue for any performance. And with shows that range in price from just $5.00, anyone can enjoy the experience.

The Peace Center is a local treasure noted for the quality performances it hosts and intimate atmosphere it provides. Never have I had a bad seat. From the Nutcracker ballet to STOMP this theater offers wide variety and excellent service every time.
