A musical earth rover, the Mexican Revolution, military veterans’ war stories, a musical afternoon devoted to love, an evening of choreography inspired by the night and more will be part of the fourth annual El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre.
The Jewel Box Series, created by the El Paso Community Foundation to showcase local performing arts groups in the charming Philanthropy Theatre, has carved out a niche presenting diverse, unusual and inventive programs.
The 2017-2018 season, which features eight shows from October through May, will be no different.
It will feature music, theater, multi-media and dance programs by El Paso’s Impact | Programs of Excellence, Tumbleweed Collective, Eden Enterprises, Los Actores, actor-director Camilla Carr, the El Paso Society for Musicians of the Future and composer-musician Daniel Rivera, plus the Scaffolding Theatre Company of Las Cruces.
The Jewel Box Series is produced in partnership with El Paso Live, and is supported by the City of El Paso’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
The 191-seat Philanthropy Theatre is located above the Plaza Theatre box office on the second floor of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre annex.
