“The Palace Theatre: A Journey Through Its Storied History"

Peter Ramsay

.Peter Ramsey, president and CEO of the Palace Theatre in Manchester, will talk about its history and transformation over the years. The 300-seat venue was built in 1914 and is on the National Registry of Historical Places. Today the Palace Theatre is a beautifully restored 834-seat professional performing arts center. In an area that once had 22 theatres, this historic building is now the sole survivor of “The Great White Way.” As the Palace's history continues to unfold, the theatre is again a center of cultural activity and Victor Charas’ vision remains alive and well.
