SEASON OFFERINGS | OCTOBER 2017 â€“ JUNE 2018
OLD SCHOOL SQUARE IS EVOLVING! Good Day All, Beauty is, as beauty does… We are headlong into a series of sweeping aesthetic and functional changes on the historic Old School Square campus. By now you will have noticed that all of our historic buildings have received a fresh coat of paint and new roof systems to protect our community’s heritage. In the very near future, you will notice artistic and informative signage on the campus to help spread the word on the diverse offerings we have to share. You can expect lighting and landscaping changes that will create a welcoming, park-like setting at Old School Square to provide a respite from the rigors of Atlantic Avenue. As promised, we are evolving to become an “Arts and Entertainment Park.” Old School Square is getting a long-awaited makeover…but our focus is on providing dynamic and meaningful service to our community. The 2017–2018 Season is a reflection of the people who call Delray Beach home. We have been diligent in the process of coming to understand the needs of our community and providing “something for everyone.” Our diverse offerings have been effectively “reverse-engineered” to match the eclectic tastes, budgets, and calendars of our rapidly growing audience. Old School Square is committed to striking a happy balance between the amazing touring productions you will find in this brochure, and a growing number of new, “home-grown” entertainment offerings and activities. We have a long tradition of service to our local non-profit partners as we utilize our campus on a continual basis to help them fulfill their missions. These collaborative efforts have a profound impact on the strength and vitality of Delray Beach.

COMEDY | CREST THEATRE CAPITOL STEPS Wednesday, January 3 at 8 pm Thursday, January 4 at 8 pm No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy?! Over 30 years ago, the Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Based in Washington DC, most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there's never a shortage of material. Says Elaina Newport, “Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That’s what we call the two-party system.” Tickets: $75/$65 (Premium/Regular Reserved); $450 (Premium Club Seating—Sold through Box Office only)

The show has been compared to Defending the Caveman and was called “A Comedic Multimedia Masterpiece” and “Hysterical” by Parade Magazine. Lesson Plans to Late Night is one of the highest rated main stage shows on Norwegian Cruise Lines and was called “Truly Innovative” and “A total crowd pleaser” by cruise directors and entertainment coordinators. Anyone whose ever been around children can relate to this hilarious show! Tickets: $65/$45 (Premium/Regular Reserved); $400 (Premium Club Seating—Sold through Box Office only)
JAMES JUDD Saturday, June 2 at 8 pm Monologuist and humorist James Judd, headliner of NPR‘s Snap Judgment, has accidentally ended up in a whorehouse in China while working as a banned journalist, singlehandedly ruined more than a half dozen good jobs (and counting) in industries ranging from journalism to law, and is a former patient—and current pen pal—of sham Manhattan dermatologist turned Attica prisoner Dean Faiello. Judd is also a writer and performer whose comic, autobiographic tales crowd the stage with hilarious characters and situations. Often compared to David Sedaris and Oscar Wilde, Judd connects with audiences as he shares stories classified as “spectacular public embarrassments and utter failures.” However humiliating, they affirm that part of being human is telling the stories that have happened to us, emphasizing that even in the face of failure, it’s getting up and moving forward that matters. Tickets: $65/$45 (Premium/Regular Reserved); $400 (Premium Club Seating—Sold through Box Office only)

EXPERIENCE SOMETHING NEW The Fieldhouse is a popular venue for events, parties, fundraisers, wedding receptions and other creative uses. Follow the Fieldhouse on Facebook: @OldSchoolSquareFieldhouse Photo by Julia Rose Photo
FIELDHOUSE Formerly known as the Vintage Gymnasium, the Fieldhouse has been a popular venue for music events, parties, wedding receptions, craft/trade shows, community events, town gatherings and other creative uses for more than 25 years. Originally a separate building, the Fieldhouse was connected to the Crest Theatre’s backstage area during restoration in the late 1980’s. While the Fieldhouse is no longer used for sporting events, the original backboards remain in place, and the heavy, wood ceiling beams still bear the markings of students who dared to climb up to scrawl their names in chalk. A stage was added, and the loft, which held bleacher seating for the “away” teams, provides space for seating or displays. The facility includes an adjacent food preparation/load-in area and the former locker rooms were converted to beautifully appointed restrooms.

The Fieldhouse has played a major role in event partnerships with other non-profit organizations. Some of these events include the Milagro Center’s Monster Mash (October), Delray Beach Orchid Society: Orchids on the Square (October), Southern Handcraft Society Holiday Sale (November); Plein Aire Palm Beach: Plein Fun Fest (January); Delray Beach Women’s Club: Real Men Bake (April); and Achievement Centers for Children and Families Fundraiser (April).

FOUNDED IN 1986
NE 1ST AVE
Old School Square is an award-winning arts center and the cultural heart of Delray Beach. The campus includes early 20th century school buildings, which were beautifully restored and re-adapted to house the Crest Theatre – with the Creative Arts School on the second floor, the Cornell Museum and the Fieldhouse. Also on the campus is The Pavilion, a state-of-the-art outdoor performance venue. By combining historic preservation and the arts, Old School Square became the catalyst for the 1990’s renaissance of downtown Delray Beach, now regarded as one the hottest destinations in the country. In 2012 Delray Beach was named “America’s Most Fun Small Town” by Rand McNally and USA Today. Old School Square is a community gathering place for a diverse schedule of activities. Nearly half a million people come to Old School Square each year for performances, lectures, exhibits, concerts, tours, classes, events, festivals, and rental activities such as weddings, receptions, private parties, and corporate events.
