When the Princess Theatre first opened its doors in 1920, people came from throughout the Yakima Valley to see boxing matches, Vaudeville shows and other forms of entertainment — right here in Prosser, Washington!
Now, more than 90 years later, Prosser’s historic theater is showcasing live stage plays, movies, ballet recitals, jazz festivals, school graduations, meetings, rock concerts, winemaker’s events and so much more!
Whether you are a Prosser resident, visitor or business looking to relocate to the heart of Washington wine country, you are sure to find something to your liking at the Princess.
In February 2013, Valley Theater Company (VTC) purchased the Princess Theatre and adjoining Green Room from Mercer Canyons, Inc. More than 200 donations, a matching gift from the Edgar E. Whitehead Foundation and the generosity of Mercer Canyons, Inc. enabled this purchase.
We invite you to join us at the Princess Theatre ~ the “center of Prosser” and a treasure for the entire Yakima Valley.
Both VTC and Princess Theatre rely on volunteers. We welcome and need people to help plan special events, sell tickets in the box office, help with repairs, set up for events, sell concessions, run the technical equipment and clean up. No experience necessary – just a desire to help ensure that we have performing arts, in many forms, in our community.
If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact us.
