She debuted on “The Andy Williams Show” as a toddler, where her older siblings made a weekly appearance. While the Osmond brothers found success in pop music, Marie was drawn to country & western by the young age of six. When she was just 13, Marie became a recognized country & western singer with the chart topping hit “Paper Roses.” Fred Silverman of ABC was the mastermind behind teaming the only female in the Osmond clan with her older brother, Donny, to create “The Donny and Marie Show” in 1975. Beginning each week with Marie sweetly singing, “I’m a little bit country,” followed by Donny’s reply “and I’m a little bit rock and roll,” the siblings hosted a series of comedy and musical sketches until 1979. This was followed by several movie appearances and a television series run. As an icon and trusted name in family entertainment, Marie Osmond brings her warmth, joy and the “magic” of the Christmas season to the Palace. With every wonder-filled song, this event will create holiday memories for the whole family. From Marie’s symphonic version of “O, Holy Night” to rockin’ the house with Kay Thompson’s “Jingle Bells,” this is a concert that will bring a true sense of celebration to every heart. Enhanced by Marie’s orchestra and Christmas cast, the scene is set for favorite holiday tunes including “Sleigh Ride,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “The Christmas Waltz,” “Let There be Peace on Earth,” and “White Christmas.” The afternoon will also include a medley of some of Marie’s own hits over the past 25 years, along with a unique video sharing memories from some of the most famous televised Osmond Family Christmas shows. This concert is like getting an invitation to Marie Osmond’s personal Christmas celebration, as it includes appearances by some of Marie’s younger children. They’ll join her on stage and welcome a sleigh full of holiday cheer with a visit from Santa Claus. In addition to performing, she has made an exercise video for pregnant women, published a beauty book, designed a line of clothing patterns, and oversees the manufacturing of fine porcelain collector dolls, which she makes available on shopping networks and at Disney theme parks. In addition, Marie is committed to helping children. In the ’80s she and actor John Schneider founded the Children’s Miracle Network, a charitable organization that helps children’s hospitals around the world. This event is a holiday memory in the making, gift-wrapped and delivered at Marion’s Palace Theatre. Marion General Hospital and National City Bank generously sponsor this holiday concert. Quilt Raffle for Capital Campaign Bits & Pieces Quilt Guild visited the Palace to gather ideas for the creation of a quilt in appreciation for the contribution the Palace makes to the Marion area. The elements represented include the stained glass ceiling lights located under the balcony, the twinkling stars in the ceiling, the beautiful red curtain on stage, and the mighty Wurlitzer organ. Quilted into the border are the Palace marquee and the trademark parrot that resides in every Eberson theatre. Guild members spent 180 hours working on this quilt in the summer of 2006. The quilt is on display in the lobby. Raffle tickets are $10 each and are available at the theatre box office during regular box office hours and in the lobby at the Marie Osmond concert. The winner will be announced on Friday, December 22. GIVE THE GIFT OF THE ARTS THIS CHRISTMAS With Christmas just around the corner, the Palace is a great last minute, one-stop shopping destination.

Back by popular demand, the Marion area’s talented will dance, sing, and play their way into your hearts during the Lights, Camera, Amateurs competition. Each age category will compete individually, with preliminary winners moving on to the final round of competition on January 27. To compete, pick up a registration form in the box office or mark your calendar now to watch all four events so you can follow the talent from beginning to end. Look out American Idol........Lights, Camera, Amateurs talent is here! Looking for a place to park? No problem! The Palace staff is frequently asked, “Where can we park?” Recently we sent our staff on an expedition of nearby downtown parking lots that are available during our shows. Here’s what we found -Palace parking lots (west and north) offer spaces for 90 vehicles, City Hall and the Rec Center provide for 120 cars, the County Building can park 168, and the Nazarene Church offers 250 additional spaces. These lots are all within a short walk of the theatre. This does not include the street parking available along Orchard and Center Streets as well. We hope this will help you in your quest for a parking spot during your next visit to the Palace. FYI The Palace Wurlitzer organ is featured on the World Wide Web.
