Looks like Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s new season is off to a great start, and it hasn’t even begun.
With four months to go, the regional theater announced it has already broken its record for season ticket sales by reaching 7,628 subscribers (so far) for the 2016-2017 season.
“[W]e believe this new record is a testament to the outstanding artistic excellence that our patrons have come to expect,” said Andrew Kato, Maltz Jupiter’s producing artistic director and chief executive, in a release.
Season ticket packages start at $202, and sales will continue through December. Single tickets also go on sale Monday, Aug. 22, at 10 a.m.
The decisive 7,628th ticket package was purchased by longtime supporter and donor Priscilla Heublein, who is one of the sponsors of the upcoming season’s production of “Disgraced.”
“Of all crazy things – I’ve been a friend of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre since its inception, and I can’t believe I’ve broken the record,” she said in a statement.
The previous record of 7,627 was set two years ago during the 2014-2015 season.
Season ticket holders save 10 to 15 percent on single ticket prices, receive advance access to purchase tickets for limited engagements and other special events, and more.
The upcoming season will kick off in October with a performance of “The Audience,” a play about Queen Elizabeth II’s private meetings with each of her prime ministers. The play will run Oct. 23 through Nov. 6. (Click here for the full schedule of performances.)
