It’s not every theater that can claim it was built by Burt Reynolds, but the Maltz Jupiter Theatre (long before it acquired this new name) did in fact begin as Mr. Reynolds’ brainchild back in 1978. The actor created the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre as a place where he could flex his muscles as a director and a teacher. He eventually sold the venue, which re-opened under its current name in 2004, following a renovation that transformed it from a dinner theater to a state-of-the-art regional theater.
The Jupiter Theatre remains committed to education, demonstrated through its many student workshops, master classes, arts camps, internships, and school-based initiatives. With the Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA), Jupiter Theatre also provides instruction for kids and teens in all aspects of performance, including acting, voice, musical theater, ballet, and jazz (scholarships are available).
