Meet the Palace Pets

Lately, we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home.  One of the upsides is more time with our pets, as we trade colleagues for furry friends while we work from home. Here are a few of the “Palace Pets” keeping us company:


August may be the luckiest pet of all, as he is probably enjoying private concerts by organist Jay Spencer.


Barb is being treated to special meals and lots of cuddles thanks to her dad, Technical Director, Chris.

House Manager Mary Beth has been spending quality time with her three furry friends at home.


More time at home = more time to play ball, and our Event Staff person, Kellie, is happy to oblige.


We’re sure that Levi is enjoying having his mom and Palace volunteer, Simone, at home more, but we wish she was popping up some delicious popcorn in the theatre!


Don’t let the picture fool you – this one is normally full of energy, but she’s been accompanying Membership & Marketing Coordinator, Laura, and her family on LOTS of walks around the neighborhood.


In addition to enjoying some delicious table scraps, this little guy is enjoying keeping his mom, Executive Director, Georgia company while on Zoom meetings.


Lighting Director, Adam, says Valentino is the “perfect mixture of a crazy cat and a snuggly lap dog”.

The Canton Palace Theatre Stage Gets a Facelift

While the theatre is closed to the public, the Canton Palace Theatre technical staff has been working to keep the theatre looking its best.  Several maintenance projects that require the theatre to be closed have been moved up to be completed during this time.  The biggest of these projects was the repainting of the stage.  After prepping, sanding, painting, and painting some more, the stage is looking beautiful!  Check out the progress pictures here:

BEFORE – well loved, and in need of some work

We can’t wait to welcome performers, musicians, comedians, authors, and more back to our beautiful stage!
