‪My family and I used to attend a performance at the Showboat almost every year and we were at one of the final performances back in 2016. The iconic Showboat theme song is one that is so dear to me. I will wait upon the return of something like this - it really has been the source of many treasured memories for me.‬

‪We found out that the U of M Showboat was in its final season and so we procured tickets at the last show. The energy of the cast and crew and the quality of the production was unsurpassed. We had a wonderful, and hilarious, time at the event. I hope that the concept continues in another venue in the future, as it was a great showcase for exceptionally good formative talent. Well done.‬

‪Under the Gaslight is a predictable melodrama enthusiastically and earnestly presented. What makes the show, as in past productions, is the sequence of olios in between scene changes. The second half pulls out all the stops. Farewell Showboat and thanks for a delightful afternoon!‬

‪Attended Minnesota's Centennial Showboat's performance of "Under the Gaslight!" I believe that it is the same performance that was featured when the Showboat opened in 1958. We are not sure why it is the final season but are sure we will miss them. Last performance is August 27, 2016 so you better hurry to get the few remaining tickets.‬

‪Fun musical theater, great for Seniors. Beer and wine is available. Our group was really glad we saw the play and could then speak with the actors, after the show.‬

‪My wife and I recently went to the Minnesota Centennial Showboat to see Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with her mother and sister. The play was light entertainment and very entertaining. The U of M students who put on the play are very talented. I actually liked the musical Olio's between the scenes as much or more than the play. Some were very funny. The setting on Harriet Island gives a great view of downtown St. Paul. Come down early to walk around the park before the show and go out on deck between the acts to enjoy the view. This is a good place to go with family or friends.‬

‪While planning a weekend getaway to celebrate a wedding anniversary, I happened upon the Minnesota Centennial Showboat. A melodrama version of Jekyll and Hyde was playing, and having seen a couple of melodramas in the past, it sounded as though it could be a fun part of the weekend for my wife and I, along with our teenage son.

We arrived at the showboat, which is moored at Harriet Island on the Mississippi River, just across from downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, to find ample and free parking close by. After a short walk to the ticket booth, we picked up our tickets to the matinee, which I had ordered online. The cashier was friendly and efficient. Also, the restrooms, which were conveniently located in the ticket building, were clean.

As we arrived by at the permanent gangway, we were greeted by a young man dressed in the clothes of the early 1900's. I would lean during the show that he was one of the actors. As we arrived at the boat, we were greeted by another young actor, again dressed in period costume, who offered a friendly greeting and tore off our ticket stubs. We then made our way into the showboat and looked around. The boat is of modern steel construction, with an old-time appearance. There was a small, but interesting, display about the boat, and its predecessor, which burned at dock in 1999.

Before the show, the actors who were not outside were in the lobby and were helpful and friendly when asked a question. One seemed genuinely delighted when my wife asked to have a picture taken with her. We were delighted as well.

Shortly before show time we made our way to our seats. We were seated in row C, which had a good view of the stage. But, since the auditorium is quite small, the view is likely good from any seat on the main floor or in the balcony.

The show started with a funny introduction by one of the female actors. Then, the pianist took his bench and started to play and set the theme.

The show was very entertaining and funny, as melodramas tend to be. All of the actors played their parts well, and the young gentleman who played Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was especially funny when his body convulsed and contorted to convert form Jekyll to the menacing Hyde.

The many oleos, which consisted of songs, dancing, and acting between scenes in the melodrama, were equally entertaining. Each one was totally different and well done, sometimes with elaborate costumes.

The 15-minute intermission allowed us time to purchase a beverage and snack and to lounge on the deck of the boat. The concession counter offered popcorn, candy, soft drinks, beer, and mixed drinks. Fortunately, we walked immediately from our seats to the concession stand, before the line grew long.

I would have given the Minnesota Centennial Showboat a 5/5 rating, except that the relatively young boat was starting to show some rust spots, indicating that maintenance and repairs were needed. Also, a log jam, between the boat and the riverbank, was filled with litter and dead fish. A crew should clear the mess to make it a more presentable site.

My wife, 13-year old son, and I immensely enjoyed the setting of the showboat, the melodrama, and the oleos. The acting and singing were excellent, and we enjoyed the many laughs. We may make a visit to the showboat an annual tradition.‬

‪Performers are University of Minnesota students who do a good job of singing and acting and having fun. The audience hissed and booed on cue. Play interspersed with vaudeville which is entertaining by has nothing to do with the story line. Good experience overall and nice views of the city across the river from the showboat. Still signs of the recent flooding which needs cleaning up. Fun night. Parking is nearby and a short walk.‬

‪Great show, lots of fun and energetic numbers. The Jekyll/Hyde show this summer is entertaining and the sets and costumes are top? Beautiful sunset views of the Capitol at intermission during the evening show. Well worth the price.‬

‪There's a certain novelty to the Centenial Showboat, (which doesn't actually go anywhere, it stays moored at the dock). The thing to remember is these are all student performers, so the quality varies. The costuming is usually pretty amazing, considering they have the U's budget for the costuming and sets. I prefer professional productions, where you don't have characters in their 60's played by 19 year olds.‬
