Minnesota Centennial Showboat is a traditional riverboat theatre docked at Harriet Island Regional Park on the banks of the Mississippi River in Downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. The showboat contains an intimate jewelbox theatre that seats 225. The interior is decorated to keep in time with the Victorian Era style that is expected of most showboats. The Minnesota Centennial Showboat is ran through a partnership with the University of Minnesota Theatre Department and the Padelford Boat Company. The showboat has been a long time tradition with the University beginning in 1958. The University Theatre utilizes the showboat as a learning opportunity for its students to experience professional theatre.
