As the owners, agents and employees of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities gear up for the holidays, they are patronizing local businesses, donating to area charities and taking advantage of all the entertainment opportunities Jupiter has to offer.
One of them is the holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” being presented at the Atlantic Arts Theater. The tale originated by Charles Dickens tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter and greedy old man with no Christmas spirit who is haunted by three ghosts.
The play famous for the phrase “bah humbug” will be shown Dec. 7 through 9 at the theater on Indiantown Road and Central Boulevard, near several neighborhoods of Jupiter homes. Showtimes are 7 p.m. Dec. 7 and 8 and 2 p.m. Dec. 9. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students.
“A Christmas Carol” has become a tradition at the Atlantic Arts Theater and is gracing the stage for the eighth year.
“It’s a classic, heart-warming tale of scrooge-fighting redemption,” said Jesse Furman, the creative director of the Atlantic Arts Academy. “It’s an all-ages, family play. If you’ve never seen ‘A Christmas Carol’ before, this is the perfect way to experience the play.”
The Atlantic Arts Theater is a 160-seat room that offers years round live theater, stand-up comedy performances, improvisation, concerts and dance productions. It is a wonderful asset to the Jupiter community and makes living in the area an enriching experience.
Later in December, the organization behind the Atlantic Arts Theater – the Atlantic Arts Academy – will offer a pair of popular musicals: “Schoolhouse Rock Live!” and “Shrek Jr.” Both performances will take place at The Borland Center for Performing Arts in the Midtown shopping and dining destination in Palm Beach Gardens.
“Schoolhouse Rock Live!” showtimes and dates are 8 p.m. Dec. 14 and 3 p.m. Dec. 15. The original Saturday-morning educational cartoon won an Emmy Award and will be a great hit on the stage. “Shrek Jr.” is at 8 p.m. Dec. 15 and 3 p.m. Dec. 16. The box-office bash won an Oscar Award and is sure to offers fun for the entire family.
Furman said the debut of “Shrek Jr.” at The Borland Center for Performing Arts marks the world premiere of the performance based on “Shrek the Musical.” All of the players involved are age 17 and younger.
“It’s true community theater,” he said. “Atlantic Arts Academy is a pre-professional, performing-arts academy that trains students of all ages in all aspects of performing arts, including dance, theater and music.”
