Maltz Jupiter Theatre


The Theatre’s twelfth annual gala is inspired by the Theatre’s upcoming
Tony Award®-winning musical Les Misérables

January 21, 2015 – Get ready to take a journey through the splendors of 19th century France at The Dream Ball: the most spectacular, elegant evening of the year!

Inspired by the Theatre’s upcoming production of the Tony Award®-winning musical Les Misérables, the lavish affair will take place on Saturday, February 21, at The Breakers Palm Beach. The benefit will transport guests back in time to the glamour and magnificence of 19th century French aristocracy – complete with crystal candelabras and chandeliers, lush floral arrangements and more. Led by gala chairman Gil Walsh, the evening will honor Board Member and Endowment Chairman Roberta and Harvey Golub.

The Theatre’s development team has spent the past year working with the Design Studio at The Breakers and Frost Lighting to create the perfect rustic, elegant Old World feel for the ball – complete with an exquisite color palate of blush, creams and golds. Collections of freeform candlelight will illuminate the perimeter of the Venetian Ballroom, while the center of the stage will showcase a beautiful Austrian drape backdrop. Tables will be dressed in elegant linens with glorious centerpieces, golden plates and golden-rimmed goblets. The evening will feature a cocktail reception, dancing, a live auction and dynamic performances in celebration of the evening’s theme from Les Misérables: “I Dreamed a Dream.”

Guests will dine like royalty on a succulent four-course meal, featuring Beef Wellington, a crab salad (complete with peas in a pod and marigolds), and a dessert trio of caramel salted ice cream and dark chocolates, key lime pie and fresh strawberries in a crystal praline fruit cup.

“The novel by Victor Hugo still tells one of the greatest stories of all time, and it’s the perfect show to inspire this year’s gala theme,” said the Theatre’s Director of Development Pamela Dyar. “The Dream Ball is a great reason to get dressed up and enjoy an unforgettable evening for a great cause: the largest regional theater in South Florida, which wouldn’t be here without its generous supporters.”
