In addition to producing full-scale professional family shows throughout the season, the Theatre’s Conservatory offers year-round learning opportunities for kids and adults of all ages, including a spring semester of thrilling, fun-filled classes taught by Broadway-caliber theatre professionals. The Theatre is currently enrolling students of all ages in all levels of dance, voice, acting, musical theatre and more!

The Conservatory offers a range of ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop dance classes, as well as courses in improvisation, web series creation, acting the song, audition techniques and musical theatre.

“We have something for everyone at the Conservatory, and we are elated that our signature Musical Theatre Production classes will be producing two full-scale musicals this spring: 42nd Street and Disney MULAN JR.,” said Julie Rowe, the Theatre’s director of education. “The musicals 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.”

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 master class with New York talent agent Nancy Carson on December 10 and a holiday open mic night on December 16. Additional seminars and workshops 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 2017/18 musicals Disney Newsies The Musical, Hairspray and South Pacific. Attendees will be selected via lottery, open to all currently enrolled students. The first “In the Style Of” of the season is scheduled for December 10 with Disney Newsies The Musical.

Students enrolled in the Conservatory’s Musical Theatre Production classes are preparing for two performances of The Best of Broadway Musical Revue on the Theatre’s stage on December 30, including songs and scenes from the major musicals 42nd Street and Pippin, as well as other traditional and holiday songs.

This spring will also mark the launch of the Theatre’s Musical Theatre Playwriting Class. Taught by the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive Andrew Kato and composer and playwright John Mercurio, the program is an elite internship program that will grant local teens and young adults the chance to learn the art of creating a musical, then have their work produced on the Theatre’s stage as part of the Theatre’s six-day ARC New Works Theatre Festival in April 2018.

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.

EXTRA! EXTRA!
SPECTACULAR BROADWAY BLOCKBUSTER
DISNEY NEWSIES THE MUSICAL
BURSTS ONTO THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE STAGE

Hot off the press, South Florida regional premiere of the Tony Award®-winning smash hit is perfect for the entire family this holiday season

November 14, 2017 (Jupiter) – What happens when the youth who sell newspapers at the turn of the century decide to strike?

Find out at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre November 28 through December 17 as the South Florida regional premiere of the Tony Award®-winning Broadway sensation Disney Newsies The Musical hits the stage.

Based on the real-life 1899 newsboys’ strike, Disney’s Newsies tells the story of the young people who struggle to sell newspapers to earn a living. As paper prices rise, they band together to take on the biggest names in New York media. This epic story comes to life in a high-energy explosion of dance – perfect for the entire family this holiday season!

“We are incredibly proud to offer South Florida families the inspiring and high-energy charm that is Disney Newsies The Musical,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “This musical is thrilling, uplifting and impossible not to love. The dancing is breathtaking and the music unforgettable. I’d like to encourage everyone to ‘seize the day’ and buy tickets before this one sells out!”

With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Disney Newsies The Musical is a Disney Theatrical Productions stage musical based on the 1992 musical film Newsies. The show made its Broadway debut in 2012 and was an instant hit, winning two Tony Awards®, recouping its initial investment of $5 million in seven months and becoming the fastest of any Disney musical on Broadway to turn a profit. In February and August 2017, a popular filmed stage version of the Broadway musical was also released in movie theatres nationwide.

“Mr. Feldman’s lyrics are spot-on, while the melody reminds us just how charming a composer Mr. Menken (who did “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid” for Disney) can be,” raved The New York Times. New York magazine proclaimed the show to be Disney’s “finest fairy tale in over a decade,” while the New York Daily News dubbed the show an “exhilarating jolt of youthful energy!”

Disney Newsies The Musical will mark the return of director Marcos Santana to the Theatre, who choreographed the Theatre’s hit production of Kiss Me, Kate in 2016. With Broadway credits that include the Tony Award-nominated On Your Feet!, Rocky and Guys and Dolls, Santana’s multi-faceted career as a director, choreographer and performer has spanned decades, both regionally and in New York.

“I could not be more honored to return to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre to direct Disney Newsies The Musical,” Santana said. “This musical is a heartfelt, high octane journey illuminating the extraordinary power of unity. It transports audiences back to one of the most crucial eras of journalism in New York City, reminding us of the importance of fighting for what is right.”

Featuring a cast of 26, the show’s vibrant creative team also includes choreographer Al Blackstone, a New York City-based director, choreographer and educator whose work includes Freddie Falls in Love at the Signature Theatre, Happy We’ll Be at Roseland Ballroom, the recent off-Broadway musical The View Upstairs and the television show So You Think You Can Dance. The musical will also feature the talents of several local young performers cast through the Theatre’s high-profile First Step to Stardom auditions.

The musical’s hero Jack Kelly will be portrayed by John Arthur Greene, currently appearing as Theo in School of Rock on Broadway. An accomplished musician and performer, Greene has also appeared in Broadway’s West Side Story and Matilda, as well as Peter Pan Live on NBC and American Idol. The musical’s heroine and Jack’s love interest Katherine Plumber will be portrayed by Clara Cox, known for her starring role as Peggy Sawyer in the national tour of 42nd Street, as well as regional credits that include Man of La Mancha and The Addams Family.

Can’t get enough of cabaret music, especially when performed by your favorite show’s stars? Then treat yourself to an exclusive up-close-and-personal experience at Company Cabaret in the Club Level, taking place after the show on Thursday, December 14. Here’s your chance to rub elbows with the cast and crew as they sing some of their favorite tunes. This one-of-a-kind performance begins immediately after the show in the upstairs Green Room Club Level Lounge. All tickets to the Cabaret event (not including the 7:30 performance) are $10.

BORN YESTERDAY
KICKS OFF THE 2017/18 SEASON
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

Broadway’s Andréa Burns will star in the hilarious comedy about an ex-showgirl who gives everyone a run for their money; show’s creative team includes multiple Tony Award ®, Drama Desk Award and Emmy-winning costume designer Franne Lee

October 18, 2017 (Jupiter) – What would you do if the gorgeous blonde you discovered ended up being a lot smarter than you gave her credit for?

That’s the hilarious question at hand in the brazen American screwball comedy Born Yesterday, onstage October 29 – November 12 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.

Kicking off the Theatre’s 2017/18 season, the production will star Drama Desk Award winner Andréa Burns as ex-showgirl Billie Dawn, fresh off her recent Broadway performance as Gloria Fajardo in On Your Feet!, the musical based on the life and music of Emilio and Gloria Estefan. Broadway audiences also know her as Daniela, the saucy hairdresser from the original cast of Lin Manuel-Miranda’s In The Heights, or from her other Broadway roles in The Nance, Beauty and the Beast, The Full Monty and The Ritz.

Written by visionary playwright Garson Kanin and known for popular 1950 and 1993 film adaptations by the same name, Born Yesterday is a 1946 Broadway hit that tells the story of Harry Brock, a hot-tempered and corrupt tycoon who is determined to make a name for himself in the power-driven city of Washington D.C. But when he realizes his ex-showgirl girlfriend Billie isn’t quite cutting it in highbrow society, Harry schemes to transform blonde bombshell Billie into a cultured and classy woman — with a little help from friends in low places. In a deliriously funny turn of events, Harry discovers that he may have gotten more than he bargained for.

“The role of Billie Dawn requires an actor who can change from the naïve ex-showgirl that appears at the top of the play to a confident, inquisitive and more refined woman at the end. This Pygmalion-like transformation is in the capable hands of Broadway veteran Andréa Burns,” said the Theatre’s producing director and chief executive Andrew Kato. “Ms. Burns and the actors who play the colorful cast of characters that inhabit her Washington D.C. hotel suite are under the direction of Peter Flynn, who has helmed previous productions at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre including Kiss Me, Kate, Other Desert Cities, Sleuth and the Carbonell Award-winning Man of La Mancha.”

In addition to directing at regional theatres such as the Guthrie Theater and Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Flynn’s directorial credits include the off-Broadway hit musical Curvy Widow currently running at the Westside Theater, and Ragtime at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. where he is also an Associate Artist. He is also known for staging a number of star-studded New York concerts, including the Actors’ Fund concerts of the 75th Anniversary of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town with Adriane Lenox, B.D. Wong and S. Epatha Merkerson; On the Twentieth Century, starring Douglas Sills, Marin Mazzie and Joanne Worley; Chess, starring Josh Groban; and Funny Girl, starring Whoopi Goldberg and Andrea Martin.

Born Yesterday is an audacious social satire about a woman waking up to her own power,” Flynn said. “This play is for anyone who has ever dreamed of leveling the playing field and outwitting those who’ve held them back – laughing all the way.”

With a cast of 12, the play also stars Dominic Comperatore as Harry, known for his roles in the Tony Award®-winning revival of A View From the Bridge, the critically acclaimed off Broadway revival of Lost in Yonkers, Sir Peter Hall’s production of Romeo and Juliet at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles and Steven Soderbergh’s WWII drama The Good German opposite George Clooney.

Broadway’s Darian Dauchan will portray the play’s other leading man: journalist Paul Verrall, hired by Brock to educate Billie. In addition to numerous TV and film credits, Dauchan has appeared both on Broadway in On the Twentieth Century and off-Broadway with the Jean Cocteau Repertory and Classical Theatre of Harlem.

Born Yesterday will showcase the work of several designers beloved for their work at the Theatre: award-winning scenic designer Anne Mundell (Disgraced, The Audience, Frost/Nixon, Glengarry Glen Ross and Other Desert Cities), lighting designer Cory Pattak (Me and My Girl, The Audience and Other Desert Cities) and Carbonell Award-winning resident sound designer Marty Mets, now in his seventh season with the Theatre.

The production will feature costumes by famed costume designer Franne Lee, who earned Tony Awards® for costume and set design for Hal Prince’s productions of Candide and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and an Emmy Award for production/costume design during the first five years of Saturday Night Live (including the looks for such beloved characters as the Bees, Coneheads, Blues Brothers and more), in addition to numerous other Broadway, TV and film credits.

Born Yesterday is sponsored by Suzanne Niedland in loving memory of Art and Meg Niedland. Single tickets start at $58. For tickets and showtimes, call (561) 575-2223 or visit www.jupitertheatre.org. For more information on bringing your group to the Theatre, contact community relationships ambassador Cheryl McDermott at (561) 972-6117.
