The Theatre is currently enrolling students (kindergarten through adult) in all levels of dance, voice, acting and musical theatre, with classes that start August 12.

“We’re proud to offer a host of engaging and challenging programs this fall, including a tap master class with professional tap dancer Debbi Dee, who has taught all over the world,” said Julie Rowe, the Conservatory’s director of education. “We also have a new Language of Music class with Kerry Rocks for students interested in learning to read music, as well as our popular once-a-month Cabaret Nights that give students the opportunity to perform new material in front of an audience.”

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. The Conservatory boasts world-class classroom facilities that include state-of-the-art dance, acting and voice studios.

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 2019/20 musicals The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Chicago and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students.

The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, modern, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in improvisation, musical theatre and once-a-month musical theatre audition techniques classes. Students enrolled in the Conservatory’s signature Musical Theatre Production classes for the fall semester will perform in The Best of Broadway Revue on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s stage in December, while students enrolled for the spring semester will perform in the full-scale big splashy musical that is set to be announced January 1. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.

The third class of the Conservatory’s premier Professional Training Program will also start their first year of the program this fall.

AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

Filled with jazz, blues, bebop and American songbook standards, the high-energy musical will be performed by soon-to-be graduates of the Theatre’s Professional Training Program

Then get ready for The All Night Strut! A Jumpin’ Jivin’ Jam, the musical that will everyone dancing in their seats at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre!

Onstage Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3, at 7:30 p.m., the musical will be performed by soon-to-be graduates of the Theatre’s two-year Professional Training Program. Filled with jazz, blues, bebop and American songbook standards, The All Night Strut! A Jumpin’ Jivin’ Jam is a musical revue that takes audiences on a journey through the Depression, World War II and the post-war boom in a musical celebration of the 1930s and ‘40s. Weaving together the work of beloved songwriters, the story moves through time and place to capture an epic American era.

The All Night Strut! A Jumpin’ Jivin’ Jam is a fantastic blend of high-energy dance, colorful characters and celebrated music,” said Julie Rowe, the Theatre’s director of education. “Our students have grown exponentially over the past two years in our Professional Training Program, and I’d love to encourage local residents to enjoy a spectacular evening out to support the next generation of great artists.”

Directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran and Conservatory faculty member Brian Andrews, the musical features design elements from a host of industry professionals, including scenic and properties design by the Theatre’s properties master Casey Blanton, sound design by the Theatre’s resident sound designer Marty Mets, lighting design by Michael J. Burris, costume design by Brittani Seach, music direction from Conservatory faculty member John Mercurio and stage management from Noelle Dibble.

Featuring nine local students (ages 17 and up) who have made acting their career choice, the musical will feature the talents of Madeline Gilbert, Sophia Gonzalez, Jawan E. Hayes, Spencer Landis, Allegra Miles, Leandre Thivierge, Frances Weissler, David Cochise Williams and Jessica Harley Woodard.

The only two-year professional training program in Florida affiliated with a professional regional theatre, the students have spent the past two years training 35 hours per week with Broadway and South Florida professionals for all aspects of performing, including acting and acting for the camera, voice and speech, musical theatre styles, multiple forms of dance, music theory, Shakespeare, stage combat, piano fundamentals, career prep and more.

A competitive, audition-only program, the program is designed for students who have graduated from high school who are pursuing a career in the performing arts (or upper level homeschooled students). The nine students will graduate from the program in August, and a new class of students will begin the program in the fall.

“We’re so proud of all that our students have accomplished during their time with us,” Rowe said. “It’s been a privilege to see them thrive as young actors and develop the discipline needed to pursue a successful career in the performing arts. The goal has always been to create working professionals who are ready for the marketplace, and they’ve shown us that they’re ready.”

Conceived by Aaron Thielen and Marc Robin, the musical features new musical arrangements by Richard Carsey, J. Micahel Duff, Ryan T. Nelson, Doug Peck and David Siegel, with orchestrations by Dave Siegel.

BRING THE FAMILY TO
YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE!

Students taking part in the Theatre’s Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts’ Junior Conservatory will perform the classic musical onstage

July 12, 2019 – Take a moment to appreciate life’s simple pleasures with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!

Renowned performer and Conservatory faculty member Ricky Nahas will direct and choreograph the upcoming production of the heartwarming musical on July 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. on the Theatre’s stage. Fun for the entire family, tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children.

The show will star 42 students from Palm Beach, Martin County and beyond who are participating in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts’ three-week Junior Conservatory summer camp (grades 3-5), in which students learn all aspects of theatre such as acting, dance and voice, culminating in fun-filled full performances of the musical.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a 1967 musical comedy with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner, based on the popular characters created by cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in his comic strip Peanuts. The musical premiered off-Broadway in 1967 to much success, with a Broadway production that opened in 1971, a West End production that opened in 1968 and nine U.S. touring companies. A revised 1999 Broadway revival also followed. The production’s original cast recording was nominated for a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album in 1968.

“A miracle!” raved The New York Times about the show, stating that “most everything works, because almost everything is effortless.” The Village Voice praised its set and cast, calling them “strikingly talented.”

A fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic, the Theatre’s version will feature Sally and Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, and Snoopy in this charming revue of vignettes and songs. Two new songs, “Beethoven Day” and “My New Philosophy,” have been added to the twelve numbers from the original version, which include “My Blanket and Me,” “The Baseball Game,” “Little Known Facts,” “Suppertime,” and “Happiness.”

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown features all of Charles Schulz’ classic characters and brings us all back to a simpler time to remind us what really matters,” said Julie Rowe, director of education for the Conservatory. “The music is dynamic and the lessons poignant. Audiences will love this refreshed stage version of the stories they know and love!”

Seen onstage in the Theatre’s professional productions of Les Misérables, The Wiz and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Nahas has served as a Conservatory faculty member for the past six years, teaching voice and dance. He previously directed and choreographed the Conservatory’s productions of In the Heights, Madagascar JR., Sister Act, Guys and Dolls, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, Jr., Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr., SEUSSICAL™ and Little Shop of Horrors, and also choreographed all three years of the Theatre’s productions of Through the Looking Glass. Notable roles include Radames in Aida, Mungojerrie in CATS, a swing and dance captain in the National Tour of Altar Boyz and Double J in Saturday Night Fever. Currently based in West Palm Beach, Nahas has performed throughout Europe, with TV credits that include Burn Notice and Guiding Light.

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown has so many creative elements and wonderful opportunities for young performers to create and explore,” Nahas said. “The music is fabulous and the musical is so much fun for everyone. Bring the entire family to this high-energy, fun-filled musical!”

During camp, Nahas will guide students through the process of auditioning for a Broadway show, a rigorous rehearsal schedule and the opportunity to showcase all that they’ve learned onstage, complete with costumes, sets, professional lighting and a professional theater orchestra.

The musical features design elements from a host of industry professionals, including scenic and props design by the Theatre’s properties master Casey Blanton, sound design by the Theatre’s resident sound designer Marty Mets, lighting design by Michael Jon Burris, costume design by Brittani Seach, music direction from Conservatory faculty member John Mercurio, dance instruction assistance from dance captain David Williams and stage management from Noelle Dibble.

Showtimes for the Conservatory’s upcoming production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown are 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, and Saturday, July 27. Tickets are $25 for adults; $20 for children. For tickets, call the Theatre’s box office at (561) 575-2223 or visit www.jupitertheatre.org.
