Maltz Jupiter Theatre Just Announced Its 2016-2017 Lineup. Take A Look.

It's never too early to start making your theater plans for next year.

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre announced its 2016-2017 season Monday. The lineup, which kicks off in October and runs through April 2017, includes two shows that were on Broadway last year, musical comedies and a beloved classic.

The five in-house productions are: "The Audience," "Me and My Girl," "The Producers," "Disgraced" and "Gypsy."

In addition, the regional theater will host nearly two dozen other performances, from limited engagements to productions by the conservatory. 

Andrew Kato, producing artistic director and chief executive of Maltz Jupiter Theatre, noted that the upcoming season will offer theatergoers shows that take some risks.

"I think you have to diversify," he said. "You can't do the same shows—you have to mix it up."

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Disgraced," for example, is a beautifully written show that discusses important topics that shouldn't be shied away from, Kato said.

"You like to be popular, but sometimes you have to be brave and stick your neck out," he said.

Single tickets for plays and musicals go on sale Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. Tickets for special productions, special engagements and limited engagements go on sale May 6 at 10 a.m. 

Season subscribers will also have the chance to be entered into the "Keys to the Kingdom Sweepstakes," the winner of which will receive two tickets to every single performance and event held at Maltz Jupiter Theatre all season long. That includes cast dinners, parties, behind-the-scenes opportunities and more. Subscriptions begin at $202.

The full schedule of performances is below:

 

The Audience

For more than sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has held private weekly meetings with each Prime Minister, from Churchill to Cameron. In these intimate and sometimes explosive conversations, we see glimpses of the woman who wears the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch. Go behind the walls of Buckingham Palace and into the private chambers of Queen Elizabeth II for the audience in Peter Morgan’s riveting new play that swept Broadway last season.

 

Me and My Girl

Nov. 29 – Dec. 18, 2016

What happens when you discover you are royalty? In this hilarious romantic comedy, an unrefined charmer learns he is heir to the Earl of Hareford. His aristocratic family believes he can become a gentleman and earn his inheritance – but only if he gives up his true love. Will love or money win? Filled with show-stopping hits such as “Love Makes the World Go Round” and "The Lambeth Walk," this heart-warming dance sensation is perfect for the entire family this holiday season.

 

The Producers

Jan. 10 – 29, 2017 

Start off the new year with this hilarious musical comedy. When Mel Brooks' humor meets the magic of Broadway, you know you're in for an outrageously funny adventure! Meet a down-on-his-luck producer and his accountant who decide to take a chance on Broadway with a brand-new show. Together they scheme to produce a flop in order to keep the backers’ money and become rich. Winner of 12 Tony Awards®, this musical phenomenon explodes with witty antics and over-the-top shenanigans that will keep you laughing from beginning to end. 

 

Disgraced

Feb. 12 – 26, 2017

There are some things that you just shouldn’t discuss at a party. What begins as innocent table conversation among four friends explodes when the topic turns to current events, leaving everyone’s relationships and beliefs about race and identity in pieces. But will their friendship survive? This Pulitzer Prize-winning play examines the stories we share with our friends, the secrets we tell our lovers, and the lies we tell ourselves. This provocative and thought-provoking new Broadway hit will leave you questioning your biases. 

 

Gypsy

March 21 – April 9, 2017 

Let us entertain you with one of America’s most beloved classic musicals. Inspired by the memoirs of the legendary burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee, this story follows the dreams and efforts of a powerhouse stage mother to get her two daughters into show business. This Broadway smash features such unforgettable songs by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim as "Together, Wherever We Go,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “Rose’s Turn” and “You Gotta Get a Gimmick.”
