Nov. 24, 2010 (Jupiter) - Wondering what unique gift to buy that "special someone" for the holidays? How about a live theatre experience they'll never forget?

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre has an abundance to choose from in December and January, including the two hit musicals Academy and The Sound of Music, a New Year's performance by The Capitol Steps, a holiday concert by the Palm Beach Gardens Concert Band and a star-studded gala at The Breakers Palm Beach.

"Theatre tickets truly make the perfect gift," said the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's Artistic Director, Andrew Kato, who is also directing the Theatre's world premiere of Academy. "In addition to choosing tickets to a particular show, many people each year purchase a four-play season subscription or a gift certificate, which allows their loved ones to choose shows that intrigue them the most."

Here's a look at some of our upcoming Theatre entertainment this holiday season:

Tuesday, December 7 - Thursday, December 19 - WORLD PREMIERE MUSICAL: Academy
The hit new musical that has been generating rave reviews from New York to South Korea, Academy takes place at St. Edwards Academy, and follows the story of two seniors who make a harmless bet on whether they can influence an unsuspecting freshman to break a few rules to succeed. But when the transaction goes recklessly out of control, the boys become entangled in a fight for their own academic and personal survival. Call for showtimes; tickets are $46-$60.
