CHILDREN'S SHOW, CONCERT, SATIRE
AND AUDITIONS COME
TO MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

March 31, 2010 (Jupiter) - The Maltz Jupiter Theatre's 2009/2010 Dream Imagine Escape season recently ended on a high note with near sell-out of the tap-dance extravaganza Anything Goes.

But the theatre won't be quiet for long, as it raises the curtain on a series of top-notch Limited Engagements. And talented kids should audition for two of next season's shows, Academy and The Sound of Music.

Here's a look at the next few weeks:

CHICK-FIL-A PRESENTS THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES - 10 a.m. Saturday, April 24 - Join some crafty swindlers, the bumbling Emperor and his entire court as they learn the cost of conceit in the original "fashion faux pas." This endearing musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic is sure to weave its way into your heart. Tickets: $12.

COOPER GETSCHAL AND THE BEACH BOOMERS - 8 p.m. Saturday, April 24 - The singer-songwriter, who has worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Jeff Barry, performs a concert titled 3 Minutes from Retirement. Tickets: $20.

SHINE THE LIGHT - 3 p.m. Sunday, April 25 - Concert to honor Makayla Joy Sitton will benefit the Jupiter Academy of Music and Florida Classical Ballet Theatre. WPTV-Channel 5 anchor Kelley Dunn will emcee the event. Tickets: $15-$50.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST - 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 30 - Student director Wade Jennings and the Future Youth Director's Chair presents Oscar Wilde's satire, written and set in 1895. In it, Jack leads a double life, in which he is Earnest in town, and Jack in the country.  He has come to town "expressly to propose to Gwendolyn." However, Algernon discovers Jack's double life, and a hilarious mistaken identity tale ensues when Jack accidentally reveals to Algernon the location of his home in the country. Tickets: $15 adults, $8 students. This is a Dreyfoos School of the Arts Student Production.

FIRST STEP TO STARDOM - 12-8 p.m. Saturday, May 1 - Auditions for Academy and The Sound of Music will be for children ages 4 to 18. Audition workshops, to help children learn what will be expected at auditions, will be offered at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 17, and 3 p.m. Saturday, April 24.
