The Royal Theatre opened in 1932 and seated 392. In its early days the Royal ws one of the only forms of entertainment for the people of the small town of Versailles. Just a small town theatre with an exterior box office, the marquee did not have an attraction penel just neon diamonds stretched around the length of the marquee. The name Royal was in neon on the front of the marquee. The two story front was a blond brick with four columns from the roon to the marquee. A small lobby and one aisle down the center of the auditorium.

The Royal continued to show movies until 1981. It was then converted to live performances and is used mostly during the summer months when the area is filled with summer visitors to the lake.

Visit (complete with sounds bites)

Frankie loves to entertain the crowds. The crowds can dance or just listen to the ‘golden oldies’ sung by what has been described as the ‘golden voice’ of FRANKIE VALENS. Frankie’s wife Phyllis joins him in singing famous duet songs from the past.

Frankie has been in concert with such notable acts as: THE BYRDS, CRYSTAL GALE, THE PLATTERS AND THE BOXTOPS. Frankie has appeared at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City with former President Reagan; the Waupaka Performing Art Center in Wisconsin; and the famous Orpheum Theatre in Wichita, Kansas where Red Skelton appeared.

Note: Frankie Valens will be inducted into the Music Hall of Fame later this year in Wichita, Kansas at the Museum of World Treasures, who is planning a musical exhibit and creating a special CD edition of Frankie’s greatest recordings.
