Front Street

The Front Street Crystal Palace Revue is in its 55th year, and is the longest running summer stock theatre production in Nebraska.

An Old West shoot-out and show are performed  during the summer Thursday, Friday and Saturdays in June, and Wednesday through Saturday July 1-August 11.    Gunfight starts at 7:30 pm, and the show is at 7:45 pm. Call 308-284-6000 for reservations.   Ask about Monday and Tuesday night shows for large groups.

Front Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Housed at Front Street’s free cowboy museum, the new Prairie Rodeo Museum exhibit is dedicated to preserving and promoting the state’s rodeo history.  The initial collection includes memorabilia contributed by the family of Nebraska rodeo legend Wayne “Tuffy” Barent.  Barent, who passed away in April, 2016, was the Nebraska State Bareback Champion from 1956 to 1958.  Exhibit items include buckles and awards, as well as a saddle and leather luggage crafted by the late Ogallala saddle maker Wes Feusner.  Organizers plan to add to the collection and commemorate all aspects of the sport of rodeo.  For more information about the Prairie Rodeo Museum, contact Barb Barent at 308-883-1908.
