GEORGETOWN PALACE THEATRE RECEIVES GIFT FROM THE ESTATE OF DOUG SMITH; PAYS OFF REMAINDER OF MORTGAGE in GEORGETOWN, TEXAS
On Monday, December 20, 2021 at 4:30pm, various staff, donor, volunteers, and board members of the Georgetown Palace Theatre will gather in front of the Doug Smith Performance Center on 206 W. 2nd St. in Georgetown, Texas, to celebrate and document a most generous and monumental occasion. Last week, the Palace received a gift bequeathed by the estate of Doug Smith that allowed the non-profit theatre organization to pay off the mortgage on Smith's namesake building.
"It is such an exciting time for the Palace and we look forward to the future. We are so grateful for the deep generosity of Doug Smith, his family, and his estate and are honored to be the keepers of his legacy with this namesake building," states Executive Artistic Director Ron Watson.
