Jewel Box Series Returns

The El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box series in the Philanthropy Theatre returns for another great season.

The performing arts series, produced in partnership with El Paso Live, is designed to showcase homegrown talent in one of the city’s most dazzling — and intimate — spaces, the Philanthropy Theatre, part of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre.

The second season opens September 11 with “Unwanted Laughter” a Tony Award Nominated Playwright by Marty Martin, and closes May 15 with “Messenger of a Plausible God,” a Tony Award-winning and Academy Award Nominated Playwright/Screenwriter by Mark Medoff.

The nine-month series also strings music, multi-media and plays by Border Theatre, the El Paso Society for Musicians of the Future, the Frontera Repertory Theatre Ensemble, Kids-N-Co., Stage Works Ensemble, Youth Collaboration of the Arts and Zemwerk.
