EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The El Paso Community Foundation’s Jewel Box Series at the Philanthropy Theatre is returning for its seventh season beginning in November.

Tickets for the first show go on sale Friday, Oct. 21 at the Plaza Theatre Box Office and online through Ticketmaster.

The series will showcase four plays, two concerts, and one interactive dance piece between November of this year and May of next year.

The Jewel Box Series began in 2014 in conjunction with El Paso Live as a way to host performances by local groups in the Philanthropy Theatre located in the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Center.

Unfortunately, the series was put on hold in 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, but the 2022-2023 season offers fans of the performing arts a chance to once again sample a wide variety of shows.
