Jupiter, FL (Wednesday, September 17, 2008) - The Maltz Jupiter Theatre announces its 7,000th subscriber for the upcoming We Create Art season! On the afternoon of Monday, September 15, Jeremy and Sharon Browne, unaware of the subscription count, came into the Theatre to buy four subscriptions and became the celebrated 7,000th subscriber! After five remarkable seasons, the Theatre is becoming one of Florida’s preeminent professional theatres.

Reaching the 7,000th subscriber has been an internal goal for the Theatre. "According to the Theatre Communications Group, the average number of subscribers at regional theatres across the country has declined by 10% over the last five years. So we are very proud and appreciate the community support at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in helping us achieve record attendance," says Director of Marketing, Jennifer Sardone-Shiner.

The Theatre has increased 700 subscribers from last year’s attendance of 6,300, according to Jay Johnson, Box Office Supervisor of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, which was an increase of 35% from 2006’s record.

As the Theatre moves forward, it is dedicated to bringing high-quality productions and educational programs to the community. In addition to record subscriptions, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre has achieved other milestones including the “Best Musical” Carbonell Award, South Florida’s highest honor for artistic excellence for the past two years as well as being the proud recipient of a prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation grant for its new Emerging Artist Series in Musical Theater Playwriting.

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is a professional not-for-profit regional theatre dedicated to the performing arts whose mission is to entertain, educate and inspire our community. The Theatre is a member of the prestigious League of Resident Theatres and is located east of U.S. Highway 1 at 1001 East Indiantown Road and State Road A1A in Jupiter.
