“I am honored and beyond excited to be joining the Senior Leadership Team at the Palace Theatre, and especially at this exhilarating time.” said Robin “Twelve years ago, I found myself in a very similar situation, where my passion was ignited daily.  Now, with vast experience working not only within a theatre, but as part of an economic impact generator affecting the entire community, I feel like an over-energized horse at the starting gate - I just can’t wait to do it all again in this very essential and highly influential capital city!”
