Special Event Set Following Jesus Christ Superstar In Boca


BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — An upcoming performance of Jesus Christ Superstar in East Boca will be followed by a tribute to Jan McArt who is the director of theatre arts at Lynn University and considered a big deal when it comes to musical theater in Florida.

Vickie Halmos, executive producer of Entr’Acte Theatrix and Palm Beach Principal Players, today announced that she will be hosting a special after-show tribute to Jan McArt, the Director of Theatre Arts Program Development at Lynn University who is widely recognized as the First Lady of Florida’s Musical Theatre.

Ms. McArt will be honored at a Piano Bar/Pizza Party at the Count de Hoernle Theatre (formerly “The Caldwell”) following the Sunday matinee performance of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR on July 8.

This heart-warming and music-filled tribute to Jan McArt will include a reunion of supporters and performers from her long-running Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, where an after-show pizza party was a tradition. The cost to attend both JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR and the after-show tribute is only $35 in advance and $40 day of show.

“Just as this production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is resurrecting the recently-shuttered Caldwell Theatre, so too are we going to use this show to remember with great fondness another vanished cultural landmark in Boca Raton, the Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, and its guiding light and guardian angel, the always enchanting Jan McArt,” said Halmos.

With a dynamic 25-person cast, this production of the smash hit musical JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice will run for 10 performances at the Count de Hoernle Theatre, the former home of the Caldwell Theatre Company, located at 7901 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton:

+ Thursday, July 5 – 8 p.m.
