PALAIS THEATRE MANAGEMENT PTY LTD
Palais Theatre Management Pty Ltd’s (PTM) goals have been to make every interaction with the Palais Theatre positive – to support and enhance the promotion, presentation and appreciation of the artists and events which grace its stage.
Managing this iconic, historic theatre since 2007, Palais Theatre Management Pty Ltd substantially increased annual performance numbers and ticket sales through its supportive management style, involvement with the community and investment into the Theatre’s amenity. PTM developed the range of promotional opportunities for events including the use of social media, cross promotions with local businesses and providing community access. PTM also developed a staff who are positive and enthusiastic and love the opportunity to be part of this St Kilda institution. PTM encouraged all staff to take pride and responsibility in all aspects of the venue.
The Palais Theatre holds a special place in the hearts of many thousands of people and it has been a wonderful experience since 2007 to ensure that Patron expectations, desires and memories have been respected and where possible exceeded. We are disappointed that we won't be continuing to present artists and events of the highest calibre as well as school, charity and community events at this great institution. We hope the new operator has as much respect and care for the Palais Theatre as we have and loves every minute of it as much as we have.
