About the Historic Palace Theatre

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Lockport! When the Historic Palace Theatre opened on July 18, 1925, Lock City Theater Company President A. Edmund Lee told a capacity crowd that it was "built not for the aristocracy, but for all the people" and that they had successfully "extended Broadway into Lockport and to the people of Niagara." Those statements ring true to this day, as the Palace shines like a beacon for the arts and entertainment that are so vital to the community. The Historic Palace Inc. is a community-based organization dedicated to maintaining the historic and architectural integrity of this Western New York landmark while providing a venue for the performing arts and a center for arts education.

Lockport Ballet Partnership: Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Lockport children from Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy. Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy offers courses for students from ages 3 to adult, beginner through advanced. For over 30 years, the Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy has aimed to install dance techniques and style, the physical training necessary for the body development, a feeling for movement, music appreciation, and the emotional qualities needed for dance. When students leave the studio, they will have developed a stronger character, a greater awareness of themselves physically and a better appreciation and respect for the arts. Many of the studio’s students have performed throughout the U.S., Hawaii, and Europe. Dyan and staff have choreographed many of the studio’s live performances at The Palace Theatre, as well as musicals for DeSales of Lockport.
