We’re happy to recommend the Palmer-Westport Group as theatre consultants. Our Princess Theatre has been operational for over thirty years and has enjoyed many successes. But we are due for a reexamination of policies, procedures and programming plus board and staff development. Susan Palmer has brought an extensive background very helpful to the needs of our group. With her guidance we are assured of reaching our goal of making the Princess the best performing arts center it can be. Susan and Sarah have given us so much already and we’re just starting our process. Their advice has been superb and we recommend them highly.

Our task to restore the historic Columbia Theatre in Paducah, KY was greatly enhanced by our affiliation with the Palmer Westport Group. The personalized and intensive attention we received from Susan Palmer and Sarah Sperber was vital to our feasibility planning phase of this major project. The duo came highly recommended and we can now speak to those statements of confidence as well. Their knowledge of these types of projects is unparalleled and Susan’s past experience in theatre management was invaluable. We are very grateful that we made the choice to work with this outstanding company.
