Palace Theatre Announces Samuel P. Hunt Foundation Grant

The Palace Theatre has announced it is a recipient of a $41,042 grant award from the Samuel P. Hunt Foundation for a new orchestra pit cover. The Hunt Foundation, located in Manchester, NH, was created for general charitable purposes. The latest gift to the Palace Theatre Trust will be used to support the purchase and installation of a new orchestra pit cover that will replace an out-of-date, heavy, wooden pit with limited functions. The replacement pit cover will provide the Palace stage with a safer surface and increased design capabilities.

The Board of Trustees of the Palace Theatre Trust is grateful for the generosity of the Samuel P. Hunt Foundation, which has been a major supporter of the Palace Theatre for over a decade and has helped the Palace with a variety of projects designed to update and improve the facility. The Foundation's commitment assists the Palace Theatre in maintaining a community-oriented center for the exploration and presentation of theatre, music, and dance.

Built in 1914, the Palace Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Palace Theatre is a nonprofit performing arts center that hosts its own professional company, youth and teen program and presenting acts. It is committed to achieving its mission through preserving the historic facilities of the theatre, responding creatively to the cultural and entertainment needs of the community and governing in a fiscally responsible and strategic manner. The Palace Theatre's Web site is www.palacetheatre.org.
