Jewel Box Series
The El Paso Community Foundation Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre returns for its seventh season with a seven-show series running November 2022 through May 2023.
The new season features four plays, including a stage version of Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays With Morrie, two concerts, and an interactive modern dance piece.
General admission tickets are $15 for each show and will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, October 21 at the Plaza Theatre Box Office and ticketmaster.com.
The Jewel Box Series was created in partnership with El Paso Live in 2014 to host local performing artists and groups in that jewel box of a venue, the Philanthropy Theatre in the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre. Its sixth season was cut short in March 2020 by the pandemic lockdown.
