GO BEHIND THE SCENES
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
AND JOIN THE CAST OF VOLUNTEERS

There’s a role for everyone as the Theatre nears completion of its $36 million expansion; come play your part!

August 11, 2021 (Jupiter, Fla.) — Great theater begins with you! That’s right; the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is now casting volunteers to help the Theatre shine!

There is magic happening all around the brand-new Maltz Jupiter Theatre as it nears completion of its $36 million expansion, and its staff needs your skills, enthusiasm and time to reopen in January. This season, join the Theatre’s cast of more than 400 volunteers and become a part of the fabric of the largest regional theatre in the southern half of the country. Volunteers help in every department in the Theatre, with jobs based on talents, skills and interests.

The Theatre will host a free open house for prospective volunteers this Saturday, August 14, from noon to 3 p.m. Taking place at Jupiter Community Center, all department areas will be represented to discuss specific volunteer jobs. Residents are asked to allow one hour to visit all department stations, with no preregistration required All open house attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a pair of tickets for every limited engagement of the 2021/22 season.

“Volunteering is one of the most important ways people can support the Maltz Jupiter Theatre,” said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director and chief executive. “We’re coming back to an exciting new space following our big renovation, and having people volunteering their time is going to help bring us closer to reaching our goals of producing the next Broadway-bound play or musical right here in South Florida.”

Volunteers currently serve as bartenders, ushers, box office assistants, production support and more, with positions available daytime, evenings and/or weekends. Volunteers are recognized for their service through several appreciation events during the season.

“Most people think of ushering when they think of volunteer opportunities at the Theatre, but there are countless ways that residents can volunteer their time with us,” Kato said. “Volunteers can work in our production center building and painting sets in West Palm Beach, pick up actors from the airport or help set up our special events. We’d love to invite anyone interested to stop by and see us at our open house this Saturday to learn more and join our ‘family.’”

Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the exciting departments up for volunteer consideration:

  • Ushering and Bartending
  • Shuttle Drivers
  • Production (assist backstage or at the costume shop)
  • Marketing (special events and festivals, subscription campaign and more!)
  • Box office (customer service/Will Call)
  • Development (fundraising events)

GOLDER CONSERVATORY
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
TO BEGIN FALL CLASSES AUGUST 16

The Conservatory is offering a full schedule of classes at its new collaborative arts space in Juno Beach while the Theatre’s $36 million expansion is completed

July 30, 2021 (Jupiter, Fla.) — Children and teens seeking focused training for dance, acting and musical theatre have a new studio to call home in Juno Beach this fall.

With classes set to begin Monday, August 16, the new Goldner Conservatory at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre has a full schedule of classes for grades 3-12 at Kids Need More Art in Juno Beach. The 1,254-square-foot collaborative arts space – which is serving as the Conservatory’s temporary studio while the Theatre’s $36 million expansion is completed – will offer fine arts classes during the first half of each day, then switch seamlessly to the Conservatory’s performing arts classes each afternoon.

The Conservatory’s classes will be led by an acclaimed faculty with decades of performance experience: the Conservatory’s new director of education Becky Timms, dance instructor Brian Andrews and acting instructor Amy Dolan-Malaney. A diverse selection of classes range from Acting I for elementary school students to Jazzmatazz for middle school students and Dance Improvisation and Composition for grades 9 and up, among others.

The Conservatory is a premier professional Conservatory that offers the highest caliber of artistic education to students of all ages. It is a place where students at every level of ability can find their own artistic voice; a place to grow and explore through the highest levels of training in dance, music and acting. It is a place where students feel safe and encouraged to grow and cultivate the individual artist within them.

“We are so proud to be offering a new option for local performing arts students; a space where students can be inspired and grow as performers,” Timms said. “In addition to my role at the Golder Conservatory at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, I am a professional director and choreographer, and I always tell my students: ‘I want to train you well enough that I can hire you.’ That’s the standard of training that we aspire to at the Conservatory.”

As part of the Southeast’s largest regional theatre, the Conservatory draws talent from the finest artists both locally and across the country. In addition to its regularly scheduled classes, the unique connection to the Theatre and Timms’ relationships with New York artists will enable the Conservatory to offer a steady stream of master classes and workshops with acclaimed performers, directors and choreographers from around the world.

Becky Timms is a multi-talented artist with extensive professional experience on Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours and regionally. A teacher, director, choreographer and performer, she has more than 35 years of teaching experience at such prestigious institutions as the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City and the famous Perry Mansfield summer camp in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. She has worked with such legends as Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Michael Bennett, Bob Fosse, Susan Stroman and Trevor Nunn, and has directed and choreographed more than 60 productions for professional Equity theatres across the U.S. She served as associate choreographer for the Tony Award®-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2002.

Brian Andrews is a long-time alumnus of such Broadway and national tours as CATS (which he and Timms performed in together) and A Chorus Line, including nearly 6,000 cumulative performances. In New York, he studied with David Howard at the Harkness School of Ballet and at STEPS, with Finis Jhung and Madame Darvash. Brian has danced at such regional venues as the St. Louis Muny, Corn Stock and Peoria Players in Peoria, Illinois, and has received dance training at Hubbard Street Dance and Ellis Du Boulay School of Ballet in Chicago. He is a member of the Cecchetti Council of America and a certified Cecchetti Instructor, having obtained training from such masters as Suzanne Gray-Granger, Pirkko Lawler and more. For ten years Brian taught at his own school, Ballet Plus, and also served on the teaching staff at Ballet Florida. He spent 11 years as a sought-after music and dance instructor at the Conservatory (prior to its closure in spring 2020 due to the Covid-19 crisis) and is happy to return.

Amy Dolan-Malaney is a veteran of the stage. Among her varied theatrical roles is an appearance in the first national and Broadway cast recording of Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? She was also seen in multiple mainstage opera productions during a 21-year career with the Michigan Opera Theatre at the Detroit Opera House. Amy has worked at a diverse array of regional venues, including Chicago’s Marriott Lincolnshire and Drury Lane Oakbrook, Michigan’s Meadowbrook Theatre, the Kenley Players in Ohio and many more. She recently performed the role Mrs. Whatsit in A Wrinkle in Time and Jack’s mother in Into the Woods at Flint Repertory Theatre. Amy is a proud member of the professional actors’ union Actors' Equity Association (AEA).

After construction is complete, the Theatre’s 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility will feature two theatres, six studios and a complete floor dedicated to arts education for local youth. The Theatre’s grand reopening will take place in early 2022, with continued fundraising to complete the Conservatory’s interior. The Conservatory is tentatively scheduled to reopen in its permanent space later in 2022.

The Theatre is now actively raising funds specifically to support the Conservatory. Named the Conservatory Comeback Campaign, anyone specifically interested in supporting the Conservatory’s future at the Theatre can contact Andrew Kato at This email address is being protected from spambots.

MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
ANNOUNCES NEW SEASON
FOLLOWING $36 MILLION EXPANSION


Spectacular 2021/22 grand reopening season will kick off with a three-week open-air run of Broadway’s Jersey Boys at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in January

July 26, 2021 (Jupiter, Fla.) — The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s 2021/22 grand reopening season is set to be its biggest and most unforgettable season yet!

Scheduled to reopen in early January following a $36 million expansion, the Theatre’s 2021/22 season will open offsite with a truly spectacular treat for local theatregoers: a three-week open-air run of the smash hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in January (January 11 – 30), as well as the fun-filled comedy I Hate Hamlet at The Benjamin School’s 800-seat theater in Palm Beach Gardens (February 8 – 20). The season will then move onto the Theatre’s brand new Broadway-scale stage for the high energy, dance-filled musical Sweet Charity (February 19 – March 9) and the Tony®-nominated Broadway sensation Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (March 22 – April 10).

“We have always felt that the show must go on, and we’ve nicknamed the first two shows in our season ‘Maltz Without Walls’ because we are doing just that,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “We are very excited to partner with Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium and The Benjamin School and can’t wait to show everyone what’s possible in these two very unique venues – including a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Florida premiere of Jersey Boys alfresco in South Florida with our gorgeous January weather. We also are elated to welcome audiences back to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre for our final two shows following our $36 million expansion.”

Mike Bauer, general manager of Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, said the opportunity to host the Theatre’s production of Jersey Boys is a thrilling chance to marry two of America’s favorite pastimes.

“We are delighted to host one of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s most sought-after musicals at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, especially one as popular and beloved as Jersey Boys,” he said. “This production is the result of a wonderful community partnership, and it’s bringing together the worlds of performing arts and sports in a way that’s never been done before. This will be an experience that fans won’t soon forget.”

The season will also feature a dazzling lineup of limited engagements that will all take place on the Theatre’s brand-new stage, featuring concerts such as David Clark presents Live at the Garden: The Music of Billy Joel (February 10), The McCartney Years (February 11), Top of the World: A Carpenters Tribute (February 12), Destination Motown, featuring the Sensational Soul Cruisers (February 13), Best of the Eagles (March 10), Tribute to Journey: Odyssey Road (March 11), the Elton John tribute Yellow Brick Road (March 13) and The Prince Project (April 16).

March will bring an extra-special rescheduled benefit concert to the Theatre: 2019 Tony Award® winner Stephanie J. Block of The Cher Show, who will headline the Theatre’s eighth annual Tony Award® winner benefit concert. April will bring Grammy Award®-winning bassist Jason Newsted (former bassist for Metallica) and The Chophouse Band, who will perform an exclusive concert to benefit the new Goldner Conservatory at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.

“The brand new Maltz Jupiter Theatre will exceed all of your expectations,” Kato said. “Seeing performances on our new stage and touring our state-of-the-art production center is something you won’t want to miss. We’re looking forward to welcoming our patrons back safely to our gorgeous new building for an extraordinary season of outstanding entertainment.”

It’s time to become a new season ticket holder or renew your season subscription to get the best seats available. The Theatre is offering one four-play subscription option for the Theatre’s 2021/22 season.

With many of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s productions selling out well before they open, becoming a season subscriber is the best way to lock in the best seats at the best rate. Subscribers are able to book their seats and make exchanges in advance of the public sale.

Patrons may purchase subscriptions for club level premium seats in the Theatre’s premium space, The Green Room, and enjoy the stylish lounge and amenities.

Closed since last spring due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Theatre opted to complete its planned expansion during the 2020/21 season shutdown. Its focus became its long-awaited plans for a Broadway-scale stage and production facilities, joining the ranks of theatres such as La Jolla Playhouse and the Goodman Theatre. Several big grand opening events are being planned for January to celebrate the Theatre’s new space.

Highlights of the expansion include a new larger stage will allow the 659-seat LORT B+ theatre to qualify for a pre-Broadway or national tour development production, three floors of state-of-the-art production facilities with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, an innovative dining experience, expanded Conservatory and lobby, redesigned entrance and second theater space.

Designed by Oscar Garcia in tandem with visionary architectural firm Currie Sowards Aguila Architects, the fast-tracked plan has entailed first framing out the “shell” that will house all aspects of the expansion, giving priority to completing the stage, production support facilities and lobby to ensure that the Theatre can move seamlessly into its 2021/22 season as planned. Over the next year, the Theatre will continue to fundraise to put the finishing touches on the remaining inside portions of the building, such as plumbing and electrical work for the new Golder Conservatory, Scene Café and 199-seat second space.

The plan would not have been possible without a $5 million top-off grant from philanthropists and founding board members Milton and Tamar Maltz, who stepped in to offer the remaining funds required to complete the work this season, in addition to the $5 million matching challenge grant through The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation previously granted to the project. Many donors also added to their prior contributions when they learned the project would be starting sooner than expected.

Jersey Boys is sponsored by Kathy and Joe Savarese and Homecare America, Suzanne Niedland in loving memory of Art and Meg Niedland, John Osher and John McDonald Company; I Hate Hamlet is sponsored by Patty and Bob Hendrickson and Jodie and Dan Hunt and the Roy A. Hunt Foundation; Sweet Charity is sponsored by Dee Dee and Marty Jaffe and the The Jeff Hunter Charitable Trust, Jana and Ken Kahn and LRP Media Group, the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation and Isanne and Sandy Fisher; and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is sponsored by Priscilla Heublein, Carol and Jack Parker and John Osher.

The Stephanie J. Block benefit concert is sponsored by The Samuel J. & Connie M. Frankino Foundation and The Clark Family Private Foundation; Destination Motown is sponsored by Dorothy and Ed Slade; Yellow Brick Road, The McCartney Years and Best of the Eagles are sponsored by The Clark Family Private Foundation; and Top of the World: A Carpenters Tribute and Odyssey Road: A Tribute to Journey are sponsored by Kathy and Joe Savarese and Homecare America.

Season subscriptions and limited engagements are currently on sale. The deadline for current subscribers to renew and avoid losing their seats is September 10. Circle of Friends members receive priority to exchange season tickets for other preferred dates September 22 – 25, while donors and subscribers may exchange tickets September 27 – October 1. Single tickets go on sale Monday, October 4, at 10 a.m. For more information, answers to a list of frequently-asked questions and to become a subscriber, call the box office at (561) 575-2223 or visit www.jupitertheatre.org.
