The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is a professional not-for-profit regional theatre dedicated to the performing arts whose mission is to entertain, educate and inspire our community.
The not-for-profit Maltz Jupiter Theatre has become one of Florida's preeminent professional theatres, committed to performance, production and education through its collaborations with local and national artists. The state's largest award-winning regional theatre, the Theatre's performances have drawn rave reviews from media outlets across the world.
Under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Andrew Kato, as well as a dedicated board and staff, the Theatre has received multiple Carbonell awards, South Florida's highest honor for artistic excellence, including the prestigious Bill Von Maurer Award for Theatrical Excellence in 2012. The award is given to the theater company that exemplifies excellence for the totality of its programming: productions, educational outreach, developmental programs and audiences served.
The Theatre boasts a subscription base of more than 7,576 and has world-class facilities in support of its Paul and Sandra Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts, which serves hundreds of students in after-school, weekend and summer programs.
After receiving a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fund grant, the Theatre created the Emerging Artists Series in Musical Theatre Playwriting. Through this new program, the Theatre developed the musical Academy for the New York Musical Theatre Festival, which went on to win Best Musical at South Korea's Daegu International Musical Festival. Also through the series, the Theatre commissioned the world premiere of Fanny Brice: The Real Funny Girl and Through The Looking Glass.
In addition to a supportive Board of Directors, the Theatre has more than 400 volunteers assisting in a variety of functions, including office support, ushering, special events and computer services.
The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) public charity and serves over 70,000 people annually in the tri-county area. Located at the corner of State Road A1A and Indiantown Road in Jupiter, the Theatre's annual budget is $6.1 million, of which $2.3 is donated. The Theatre recently launched a $10 million endowment campaign to ensure that it continues in perpetuity.
The Theatre's standing as largest in the state is determined through average box office income by the League of Resident Theatres (LORT), the largest professional theater association of its kind in the United States.
The 617-seat venue is Florida's only LORT B theatre. Theaters are categorized into tiers A through D, with tiers determined by the weekly actual box office receipts averaged over the last three complete fiscal years.
