Award winning theater prepares for tenth season

In an age when theaters are closing and canceling shows, The Maltz Jupiter Theatre keeps on keeping on with on a variety of programs celebrating the launch of their 10th season, 2012-2013.

Fresh off a pinnacle of eight Carbonells for their ninth season, the theater launched a costume exhibit on April 16 at the Grand Court in the Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, featuring costumes from their own collection as well as those from Costume World, the largest supplier of costumes to theaters around the world.

The exhibit runs from April 16 to 29 and is free and open to the public during regular mall hours of Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

Nine seasons of productions are represented with costumes from over 35 different shows including La Cage Aux Folles, The Sound of Music and more. Costumes from up-coming shows are also on display including Amadeus, The Music Man, Singin’ in the Rain, Doubt, and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to launch our10th anniversary season and celebrate with the entire community,” said the Theatre’s producing artistic director, Andrew Kato. “This is a chance for people to experience an interactive, behind-the-scenes costume tour while visiting The Gardens Mall.”

Kato also noted that the theatre has been experiencing a tremendous growth in attendance with a 10 percent growth in subscriptions and the house at 97 percent capacity throughout the last season.
