BRING THE FAMILY TO
THE WIZARD OF OZ, YOUNG PERFORMERS’ EDITION
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 2, 2018 – Take a fun-filled journey down the yellow brick road with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz, Young Performers’ Edition!

Renowned performer and Conservatory faculty member Ricky Nahas will direct and choreograph the upcoming production of the beloved musical on July 27 and 28 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 45 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 full performances of The Wizard of Oz, Young Performers’ Edition.

The spectacular tale tells the story of Dorothy, a young girl from Kansas who dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away to another world. Join Dorothy, her dog Toto and her new friends the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion as they seek the Wizard of Oz!

A classic story that has been entertaining audiences for decades, the musical is a one-hour adaptation of The Wizard of Oz that is based on the 1900 children’s book by L. Frank Baum, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg, background music by Herbert Stothart, dance and vocal arrangements by Peter Howard and orchestration by Larry Wilcox. Adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company, the production is based on the classic 1939 motion picture owned by Turner Entertainment Co. and distributed in all media by Warner Bros.

The Wizard of Oz is widely considered to be one of the greatest films in cinema history, and the storytelling is truly spectacular onstage,” said Julie Rowe, director of education for the Conservatory. “Legendary for its unforgettable score and whimsical characters, it’s one of those musicals that people of all ages can see repeatedly and love it even more each time. Audiences will love this new stage adaptation of the story 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 five years, teaching voice and dance. He previously directed and choreographed the Conservatory’s productions of 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.

“I’m overjoyed to be directing and choreographing such a magnificent classic musical for local families,” Nahas said. “The Wizard of Oz has so many imaginative elements and excellent opportunities for young performers to explore and stretch their wings, and the movie has been my all-time favorite for many years. This show is a joy for both the performers and the audience. You won’t want to miss it!”

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 Jerry Sturdefant, music direction from Conservatory faculty member John Mercurio, dance instruction assistance from dance captain Keagan Cerny and stage management from Noelle Dibble.

“The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s Conservatory offers students the unique opportunity to perform in a musical at a regional theatre with full production values, just as a professional performer would do,” Rowe said. “It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students to experience what performing in a professional musical is like – and have fun while doing so.”

Adaptation and support materials for the Young Performers’ Edition were developed by iTheatrics under the supervision of Timothy Allen McDonald.

Showtimes for the Conservatory’s upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz, Young Performers’ Edition are 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 27, and Saturday, July 28. 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.

MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE STUDENTS
WORK TOGETHER TO PRODUCE
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

Students are spending their summer participating in a free ‘summer intensive’ mentorship program at the award-winning regional theatre

July 3, 2018 – A cast and creative team made up of local middle, high school and college students are dedicating their summer to producing a Pulitzer Prize-winning American masterpiece.

Under the guidance of industry professionals at Florida’s largest award-winning professional regional theatre, students are taking part in a free summer mentorship program to produce the drama To Kill a Mockingbird. The show will take place on the Theatre’s stage on Saturday, August 11.

A stage adaptation of the renowned 1960 novel by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird is told from the point of view of young girl Jean Louise Finch, or “Scout,” as she’s known throughout the play. When her father, a lawyer, takes on the task of defending an innocent black man against a potential death sentence in 1930s Alabama, Scout’s sheltered existence from racial issues is turned upside down.

Long considered a seminal classic and widely taught in U.S. schools, To Kill a Mockingbird illustrates the power of childhood innocence, morality and love. The book has been called “an astonishing phenomenon” by author Mary McDonough Murphy, and in 2006, British librarians dubbed the book as one that “every adult should read before they die.” It was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film in 1962 by director Robert Mulligan (with a screenplay by Horton Foote), followed by a play by Christopher Sergel. A new adaptation is expected to open later this year on Broadway.

Known as the Youth Artists’ Chair, the project aligns students with individual Theatre staff members for one-on-one mentoring and guidance during the creation process of the show. Since 2011, students have produced the dramas The Diary of Anne Frank, Rhinoceros, The Glass Menagerie, The Crucible, Hamlet, The Laramie Project and The Good Times are Killing Me.

“The Youth Artists’ Chair program is a wonderful annual opportunity for local students to spend their summer working on a relevant, important project with their peers,” said Julie Rowe, the Theatre’s director of education. “Our students have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge through the years and graduate-level training from highly-skilled arts professionals. We are beyond excited to be providing guidance this summer for their production of To Kill a Mockingbird.”

After passing through an extensive interview and selection process, the student creative team consists of: Frances Weissler (Director), 20, of Jupiter;  Jaynie Curzi (Assistant Director), 13, of Boca Raton; Jonathan Aviv (Co-Producer), 28, of Jupiter; Madeline Gilbert (Co-Producer), 19, of Jupiter; Brielle Cohen (Dramaturg), 16, of Jupiter; Maura Wilson (Scenic Designer), of Royal Palm Beach; Ryan Carroll (Lighting Designer), 16, of Jupiter; Kerstin Brown (Costume Designer), 20, of Okeechobee; Allegra Muilenburg (Costume Design Assistant), 15, of Palm Beach Gardens; Mia Rubin (Sound Designer), 13, of Jupiter; Sydney Geller (Props Master), 15, of Palm Beach Gardens; Colin Graulich (Assistant Props Master), 20, of Jupiter; Gabriella Smith (Production Stage Manager), 14, of Jupiter; Maya Arias (Assistant Stage Manager), 12, of Jupiter; Mitchell Hockenson (Assistant Stage Manager), 16, of Jupiter; and Sophia Gonzalez (Marketing Director), 18, of Jupiter.

The show’s cast will feature Jawan Hayes (Tom Robinson), 21, of Jupiter; Léandre Thivierge (Atticus Finch), 16, of West Palm Beach; Alexander Goodwin-Elam (Jem Finch), 14, of Jupiter; Melanie McDonald (Scout), 12, of Tequesta; Luca Riley (Dill), 13, of Jupiter; Brianna Alvarez (Calpurnia), 15, of Stuart; David Williams (Reverend Sykes), 19, of Jupiter; Savannah Sebastian (Ms. Maudie), 15, of Hobe Sound; Jessica Woodard (Ms. Stephanie), 23, of Jupiter; Summer Dingle (Mrs. Dubose), 16, of Juno Beach; Molly Dolan (Clerk, as well as understudy for Ms. Maudie, Ms. Stephanie and Mrs. Dubose), 13, of Jupiter; Spencer Landis (Bob Ewell), 18, of Jupiter; Adriana Mucia (Mayella Ewell), 19, of Tequesta; David Gaztambide (Heck Tate), 17, of Jupiter; Sebastian Rodriquez (Boo Radley/Mr. Gilmer), 12 of Palm Beach Gardens; Anthony Capizzi (Link Deas), 19 of Port St Lucie; Austin Adams (Mr. Cunningham), 21, of Jupiter; and Nicholas Russel (Judge Taylor), 14, of Jupiter.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a story that is not only classic but also timeless,” said the production’s director Frances Weissler, a student of the Theatre’s Professional Training Program. “Even though Harper Lee’s novel was first published nearly 60 years ago, the story still serves as a mirror to our society that speaks to themes such as racism, sexism and the dangers of a herd mentality. This is a story very close to my heart and something I feel is so important to share with others.”

To Kill a Mockingbird is sponsored by the Clark Family Foundation.

Tickets are on sale now for To Kill A Mockingbird, which will take place on the Theatre’s stage on Saturday, August 11, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children. Please note that this production explores mature themes. Visit www.jupitertheatre.org or call (561) 575-2223.
