Superior Showcase

Superior, Nebraska

Originally built in 1937, the Superior, Nebraska Auditorium was once the entertainment and activity hub of the community and surrounding region. Legendary musicians including Lawrence Welk, Glenn Miller and the Harry James band once played in the Art Deco style venue. Joe Louis, one of the greatest heavy weight fighters of all time also fought an exhibition match in the auditorium. While still a proud and sturdy structure, the auditorium was closed in 1997 due to budget cuts, deteriorating infrastructure and the advent of competing entertainment choices offered. Prairie Studio, in collaboration with The Architectural Partnership, was asked to develop a design plan to help breathe new life into the auditorium and return it to a source of pride, entertainment and activity for the community. Recently completed, the first phase includes code upgrades, improved mechanical and electrical systems, contemporary community meeting rooms, spaces for wedding and graduation receptions as well as a full-service kitchen. The auditorium is on the National Register of Historic Places.
