The Rococo Theatre

Right in the heart of downtown Lincoln, the Rococo Theatre is an elegant and unique venue for concerts, parties, weddings and other memorable events.

The Rococo originally opened in 1929 as the Stuart Theatre featuring live theatre productions. After an unfortunate remodel in the 70s, the architecture of the Rococo Theatre was restored to its 1929 splendor by its current owner Doug Deeter in 2000. It is now Lincoln’s high-end concert destination providing a beautiful and intimate setting for premier national touring acts live on stage. Not only does the theatre provide entertainment for Lincoln, it is also a perfect venue for special private events.

From corporate functions or holiday parties, to fundraisers and even beautiful weddings, the Rococo Theatre’s unique style adds elegance to any event.
