Showboat "Majestic" Reunion and 
Hiram Night Out in Cincinnati


Did you know that many years ago, Hiram College sent students to live, work and perform on the Showboat Majestic, a floating theater housed inside a river boat on the Ohio River?

Come walk down memory lane as we share tales of that time -– on the exact same boat!  The Showboat Majestic is the last survivor of the singularly American tradition of floating theatres, and is an official registered historical landmark.


For Hiramites arriving on Friday May 17th, we have planned an informal Happy Hour at McCormick & Schmick's located inside the Westin Hotel (4:00 p.m.– 6:30 p.m.)

The Westin Cincinnati
Happy Hour - McCormick & Schmick's
4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 

   21 East Fifth Street  
Cincinnati, Ohio  45202

We do not have activities planned for Friday evening or Saturday morning.  Fellow "boaters" Rae (Smith) Wade '60 and Pat "Chuckie" Carr '61 have made plans to take a Friday evening riverboat cruise after the happy hour.  Anyone interested in joining them can make their own reservations. Details are as follows: 

BB Riverboats - 7:30 p.m. evening cruise on the Belle of Cincinnati for dinner and wine tasting. The cost is $55 per person. Information and reservations can be made with BB Riverboats at 800.261.8586 or you can make reservations on their website at


Need to Stay Overnight?  We have made arrangements with the Westin Cincinnati for a discounted block of hotel rooms ($139 per night) for Friday and Saturday, May 17th & 18th.
