KEYBOARD CONVERSATIONS® WITH JEFFREY SIEGEL
RETURNS TO THE PALM BEACHES
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

Featuring popular American masterpieces by three beloved composers, Siegel’s exclusive ‘An American Salute’ concert showcases the renowned pianist’s talents with engaging commentary

February 19, 2020 (Jupiter) – Internationally-acclaimed pianist Jeffrey Siegel is bringing an all-new Keyboard Conversations® concert to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre for one night only.

Taking place at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 22, the concert follows in the engaging, accessible tradition of the popular sellout concerts that Siegel performed for more than a decade at Palm Beach’s The Society of the Four Arts.

An enjoyable concert for music lovers and those who would like to be, Siegel’s An American Salute will feature lively discussions and performances of some of the most beloved works of American composers: the rarely-heard solo piano version of George Gershwin's ever-popular Rhapsody in Blue, Siegel’s own exclusive arrangements of excerpts from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story, Aaron Copland's humorous Cat and the Mouse and rousing Hoedown and the Florida premiere of Bernstein’s unpublished Meditation on a Wedding.

How does Mr. Siegel happen to have an unpublished Bernstein piano piece? Why did Bernstein's esteemed biographer Humphrey Burton give it to him? Find out at this fast-paced and fun-filled concert, perfect for all ages.

Hailed by The New York Times as “an artist who means every note he plays” and The Chicago Tribune as “the Leonard Bernstein of the piano,” Siegel brings power and passion to his celebrated Keyboard Conversations® concerts. Siegel has toured the globe, appearing as soloist with the world’s great orchestras in white tie and tails.

Known for his flawless technique and insider’s “scoop,” Siegel’s concerts each offer brilliantly polished concerts-with-commentary in which his dynamic, captivating remarks precede virtuoso performances of piano masterpieces. The concert concludes with a fast-paced Q & A. New listeners will discover an informal, entertaining and instantly accessible introduction to the magnificent piano repertoire, while seasoned music lovers enjoy an enriched, more focused listening experience.

PREPARE FOR
THE ROARING 2020S AT THE
MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE’S GALA

Inspired by this season’s smash hit musical Chicago, the Theatre’s annual gala will honor the Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation

February 5, 2020 (Jupiter) – Get ready for the roaring 2020s at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s annual gala!

Inspired by the Theatre’s sold out hit Chicago, the glamourous affair will take place on Saturday, February 15, at Jupiter’s hottest new venue, Pelican Club. Led by Honorary Chairs Isanne and Sandy Fisher, the evening will honor an entity that has supported the Theatre since its inception: the Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation.  

“Our largest fundraiser of the year exemplifies the Theatre’s mission of entertaining, educating and inspiring our community, and we are so happy to honor the extraordinary ongoing work of our founding benefactors Milton and Tamar Maltz and their foundation,” said Erin Tartaglia, the Theatre’s major gifts officer. “The gala is a fantastic reason to dress up and enjoy an unforgettable evening for a wonderful cause: the largest regional theatre in Florida, which wouldn’t exist without our community’s generous support.”

Considered to be one of South Florida’s most spectacular and fun-filled “must attend” annual events, the Theatre’s development team has spent the past year working with Pelican Club, Xquisite Events and AllComm rentals to create the perfect vision for the evening. In true ‘20s style, guests will encounter the jazz, glamour and panache of a prohibition-era Supper Club, complete with dazzling entertainment as the night progresses.

With stunning panoramic views of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum and Intracoastal Waterway, guests will be treated to Big Band and jazz music as they dance the night away in the venue’s glass ballroom, bid on elegant auction items to benefit the theatre and are treated to a sumptuous three-course feast at tables adorned with flourishes of burgundy, cream and gold.

Entertainment will include a performance by more than 80 children, including students from the Theatre’s Conservatory and youth performers from the Theatre’s Professional Training Program. An eight-piece orchestra and singer will bring all the drama and beauty of live theatre into the evening, and an exclusive surprise tribute to Milton and Tamar Maltz in honor of their 90th birthdays will enthrall and delight all who attend.

“Since the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s inception, founding board members Milton and Tamar Maltz have continued to be pivotal visionaries and leaders every step of the way,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “We are so proud to honor them at this season’s gala, not only for their tremendous support of the Theatre but for their impactful contributions across the country through their foundation.”

The Foundation – which supports programs in the areas of the arts, health and human services, medical research, education and the environment – was part of the original team credited with the acquisition of the former Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre building and its subsequent transformation into the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Nine years later, the Foundation helped create the Theatre’s $10 million endowment by committing $7 million through a three-to-one matching fundraising challenge, and last season, the Maltzes announced that the Foundation would match all new donations to the Theatre’s Believe capital campaign dollar-for-dollar up to $5 million, inspiring the community to invest further in the Theatre’s expansive future.

The Theatre is only one piece of a diverse tapestry of initiatives the Foundation has fulfilled, including the creation of the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beechwood, Ohio. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that art remains accessible to young people at both the Cleveland Orchestra and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Their focus on medical research has seen the creation of the innovative Cleveland Clinic Mobile Stroke Unit.

The gala will raise funds for the Theatre’s award-winning productions to help keep its performances affordable for all, as well as inspiring the next generation of young audiences through the Theatre’s community outreach programs. It will also help support local families by providing scholarships for children to attend classes and camps at the Conservatory. More than 25 percent of students receive scholarships.

Located on the Theatre’s property in Jupiter, the Conservatory is a premiere professional Conservatory that offers a challenging, innovative and quality theatre experience to students of all ages and abilities. In addition to a full schedule of year round classes, the unique connection to the Theatre allows for exclusive hands-on workshops and master classes that offer students an opportunity to learn from nationally-known directors and Broadway performers, agents and local instructors. With state-of-the-art dance, voice and acting studios, the Conservatory is also home to the Theatre’s Professional Training Program, a two-year certificate program designed to train young actors for a career in theatre, musical theatre, film and television. The Conservatory draws more than 600 students per year from as far as Miami, Wellington and Fort Pierce.

Sponsors for The Roaring 2020s gala include Executive Producer Hawthorn, PNC Family Wealth; Grand Benefactors Roberta and Harvey Golub, Donald Huber and Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach Gardens, Peggy and Rick Katz and Milton and Tamar Maltz; Diamond Sponsors Phebe Bauer, Dr. Alceste T.

THE MUSIC MAN
MARCHES ONTO THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE STAGE
THIS SPRING

Family-friendly hit musical is just one of the opportunities for local students to perform with spring classes for all ages at the Theatre’s Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts


January 24, 2020 (Jupiter) – Seventy-six trombones are leading the parade at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre this spring!

Students from the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts are spending their spring semester preparing to perform the beloved American classic The Music Man onstage May 15 – 17.

With four full-scale performances, the Conservatory is implementing double casting for the first time in its history, offering select roles the opportunity to be played by two different students. Students in the first cast will perform their roles May 15 at 7:30 p.m. and May 16 at 2 p.m., then perform as pit singers for the remaining two performances. Students in the second cast will perform as pit singers during the first two performances, then perform their roles May 16 at 7:30 p.m. and May 17 at 2 p.m. Students cast in featured roles, dancing chorus and the show’s ensemble will perform in all four performances.

“We have something for everyone at the Conservatory, and we are delighted to be offering students in our signature Musical Theatre Production classes double the performance opportunities for the fun-filled, heartwarming classic The Music Man,” said Julie Rowe, the Theatre’s director of education. “The musical will be performed on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s stage complete with professional production values: sets, costumes, lights, a full orchestra and more. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.”

Performed by students in grades 6-12, this classic American musical takes audiences on a toe-tapping adventure with fast-talking salesman Professor Harold Hill, who convinces the townspeople of River City, Iowa that they need a band, instruments and uniforms. His plans to skip town with their money come to a crashing halt when he falls in love and has to face the music.

With book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson (and based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey), The Music Man features unforgettable songs such as “Til There Was You,” and “Seventy-six Trombones.” This Tony Award®-winning sensation is a treat for the entire family!

Directed and choreographed by international performer Ricky Nahas, the musical is just one of the many unique performance and learning opportunities offered by the not-for-profit regional theatre’s Conservatory. Spring classes taught by Broadway-caliber theater professionals are currently in session, with opportunities that include hip hop, singing, acting, exclusive master classes with nationally-known Broadway professionals and more.

The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, modern and tap classes. Faculty members include Broadway veteran Brian Andrews – an original company member of CATS and A Chorus Line – who teaches all levels of ballet in the Cecchetti tradition. The Conservatory is now offering yoga, six levels of tap dancing, two different afternoon hip hip classes, ballet for men and more.

Over 600 students per year come from as far as Miami, Wellington and Fort Pierce to study at the Conservatory. The connection to the Theatre allows students the opportunity to perform on the Theatre’s stage and work alongside professionals both onstage and off, with hands-on workshops and master classes that offer students an opportunity to learn first-hand from nationally known directors and Broadway performers, agents and local instructors.

Upcoming opportunities include a dance improv class with Broadway veteran Becky Timms on April 18 and an elite tap class with internationally-recognized master teacher Debbi Dee on March 7. Additional events are scheduled throughout the spring.

An exclusive program is the Theatre’s “In the Style Of” series, which offers an extra-special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre’s upcoming musicals Chicago and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students. The second “In the Style Of” of the season is scheduled for January 26 with Chicago.

The Conservatory is home to the Theatre’s Professional Training Program, a premier two-year certificate program designed to train young actors for a career in theatre, musical theatre, film and television. Meant for students who have graduated from high school or are homeschooled, this competitive, audition-only program enrolls 6-16 students per class, enabling participating students to grow at an accelerated pace with extremely high classroom expectations. It is the only two-year professional training program in Florida affiliated with a professional regional theatre.

The Conservatory’s staff includes Brian Andrews, Frances Weissler, Chloe Beal, Paul Carlin, Kim Cozort, Kristine DiMartino, Alexa Evans, Sophia Gonzalez, Jay Johnson, Kenneth Kay, Shelley Keelor, Breana Mejia, Ricky Nahas, Kerry Rocks, Lea Roy, Becky Timms and Suzanne Ankrum.
