Hello. I share everyone’s concern on the status of the Palace theatre. It is indeed a sad situation. i am a playwrite/director in Danbury and put on a production in October at Danbury High School, then in December at Bethel High School. This month we will go t oWalnut Hill Community Church. My vision is of course to hold productions at the Palace. I called and personally spoke with Mr. DaSilva mid 2003. He assured me that the Palace would be partially renovated by now. How discouraging. I would love to have my productions at the Palace. It is such an ideal location and could bring so much economy and excitement to Danbury. There is NO place to go to for good theatre in Danbury but all of the surrounding towns have a theatre. All were too busy to accommodate me. I spoke with the mayor and there are plans to build a new 300 seat capacity theatre in Danbury but each of my shows were over 300 people. One show was over 450 people in Danbury. So, I am pleading and praying that Mr. DaSilva softens his heart and sell so that the Palace can be restored for many good uses in Danbury.
