Moving Forward With The Palace

The Palace Theatre represents my journey, from dream to reality. The first Broadway show I ever saw was in this theatre. I saw The Will Rogers Follies here when I was nine years old, sitting in the third seat of the third row (pictured below). Years later, SpongeBob SquarePants is my third show in this glorious theatre.

I’ve never been moved by numbers. Yet, I feel life adds up to where you want to be when you are focused, working hard and are patient. I have had an incredible journey from seeing The Will Rogers Follies here to deciding I wanted to be an artist, to where I am today.

I don’t know what’s next for me or the Palace. With the theater on the brink of a major renovation, it will be changed into something that will never be what it is now. I don’t even know what that means, but I do know it means a new beginning. Not knowing is OK.

In fact, I think it’s a beautiful place to be because there are so many possibilities and opportunities to add to an already rich, fulfilled story. I will miss this home terribly and I am so incredibly grateful for the time I was able to inhabit it. I love this theater, I love the stories I was lucky to get to tell here, I love the people that all came together in this beautiful place. And I look forward to what’s next.
