The Mixed Nut Cracker is an irreverent update of the beloved holiday classic The Nutcracker, transporting toe-pointing heroine Clara from Palm Beach to New York City. All dedicated dancing will be performed at the Eissey Campus Theatre on the campus of Palm Beach State College, a modern space outfitted with ample lighting to see every leap, twirl, and digitally added drop of sweat in perfect clarity.
- As a member of the arts community, there is no better place for training or for entertainment than The Atlantic Theater in Jupiter. Stand up comedy, indie music acts, serious and comedic plays, and the improv troupe The Jove are all reasons this theater is the best in the area. – lpottinger25, CityVoter
Named in honor of golf-course designer Bruce Borland, who died in a plane accident in 1999, the Borland Center swings open its doors to the community by focusing on family values. Concerts, plays, and recitals are just a few of the events that coax guests into the venue's 10,000 square feet of space, which harbors a 500-seat theater and a multipurpose ballroom that doubles as an indoor practice field for local cribbage teams on rainy days.
