Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation Backs Proposed Expansion Campaign of Mrs. Bailey's Beloved Maltz Jupiter Theatre
The not-for-profit Theatre has proposed an expansion that will improve production facilities within the next five years. Under the current plan, the Theatre’s improved stage will be ten feet deeper and six feet wider on either side, enabling the Theatre to qualify for pre-Broadway and national tours. A third-floor rehearsal studio will provide actors with a view, and residents will have the opportunity to see actors working and rehearsing.
Designed by Currie Sowards Aguila Architects, the expansion’s proposed layout will double the square footage of the building without impacting the 617-seat audience chamber’s intimacy.
“We are so excited about the endless possibilities for the Maltz Jupiter Theatre,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive.
The $5 Million grant with be paid in two payments; the first being put forward for capital improvements to the existing structure and mechanics of the building and the second payment for the naming of the Glenn W. and Cornelia T. Bailey Production Center.
Our Foundation is excited for the community to enjoy this new space for quality and entertaining theatre productions.
