Holiday Activities at the Palace

Now more than ever, we need some holiday cheer! Come down to the Palace Theater for some festive activities to make spirits bright this holiday season. All activities are FREE to the public to participate.

Toy Drive

Working in partnership with New Opportunities Inc., the theater will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the agency’s client families.

Drop off gifts for the Toy Drive during open Box Office hours. Curbside pick-up is available on December 8 and 12 from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Box Office Hours are: Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00am – 3:00pm and Thursday 9:00am – 12:00pm. The final opportunity to drop toys off is Saturday, December 12 at 2:00pm.

Letters to Santa

Children can send a letter to Santa via the North Pole’s Palace Post Office Branch. Letters will be accepted by email to Meg Luddy, the Palace Post Master at [email protected], with “Letter to Santa” in the subject line. Meg will reply the letter has been received and that she will pass it on to Santa Claus.

Letters will also be accepted by traditional mail to: Santa c/o Palace Theater, 100 East Main St, Waterbury, CT 06702 or letters may be dropped off at the Santa Mailbox located inside the Palace during Box Office hours. All letters must be received by December 15 to ensure the child gets a reply back from Santa before his trip on Christmas Eve.

Family Holiday Photos

Take a family holiday photo at the Palace Theater set against the beautiful backdrop of the Palace Theater’s decorated Grand Foyer. Garlands and wreaths will adorn the marble staircases with the large Christmas Tree standing proudly in the center of the room. Bring your own professional camera or use your cellphone to capture a unique holiday photo.

Reservations required. Limited time slots are available (December 10 – 22) and can be reserved by calling Deirdre Patterson 203.346.2011, during Box Office hours. No walk-ins allowed. While this activity is free, donations to either the Palace Theater’s Annual Fund or the Toy Drive are appreciated.
