MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE BREAKS RECORD,
HITS SEVEN THOUSAND SEASON SUBSCRIBERS
Final week to become a subscriber for the 2011/12 season
Dec. 8, 2011 – The Maltz Jupiter Theatre has exceeded 7,000 subscribers for the current Best of Broadway 2011/12 season!
Attorney Gerald F. Richman (President of Richman, Greer, P.A.), and his wife, Gwen, became the Theatre’s 7,000th subscribers last week when they stopped in to buy two subscriptions, unaware of the banner subscription count.
“According to the Theatre Communications Group, the average number of subscribers at regional theaters across the country has declined over the last five years,” said the Theatre’s director of marketing, Jennifer Sardone-Shiner. “We are very proud to be an exception and to have reached this milestone in attendance. We appreciate the incredible support of the local community here at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.”
On a national level, statistics indicate that in 2010, regional theaters — which employed 71,400 artists, 32,900 production and technical workers, and 15,500 administrators — directly contributed nearly $1.9 billion to the U.S. economy. This is in addition to indirect fees exchanged over babysitters, restaurant meals and more, as well as theatre employees’ own contribution to the tax base and to their communities.
In its ninth season, the Theatre is the largest regional theater in South Florida and is quickly becoming one of the state’s preeminent professional theaters. As the Theatre moves forward, it remains dedicated to bringing high-quality productions and educational programs to the community. Since its inception, the Theatre has attained multiple Carbonell Awards, South Florida’s highest honor for artistic excellence.
This week marks the final week to become a subscriber for the 2011/12 season and catch Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cabaret, Red and Hello, Dolly! Subscribers save money on single ticket prices, receive one fee-free ticket exchange per show and get advance notice and ability to purchase tickets to special events.
