It’s that time of year again…that magical time when our thoughts turn to an upcoming winter event that always gets everyone so excited. No, not Christmas! Playhouse Square Jump Back Ball! JBB, as it’s come to be known, is always one of the hottest parties of the year and a fabulous fundraiser for one of Cleveland’s greatest treasures: Playhouse Square.
This year promises to be even bigger and better, as Playhouse Square Partners celebrates its 25th anniversary and the 25th Jump Back Ball. The theme is “Jump Back Under the Big Top: The Greatest Party on Earth,” which will transport guests back to a vintage, glamorous circus era. The theme for Jump Back Ball provides a jumping off point (haha) for the fabulous decorations and activities that will fill the State Theatre that night.
Jump Back Ball takes place on Saturday, February 27. The VIP reception is at 6pm, followed by a VIP sit-down dinner in the Connor Palace Theatre (this is a change from last year and definitely sweetens the VIP ticket deal). At 8pm, general admission guests will be served a buffet dinner on the State Theatre stage. At 9pm, RadioActive take the State Theatre stage for dancing galore. Then move on out to the State Theatre lobby at 11pm to enjoy more music from The Sunrise Jones.
As a change from previous years, there will not be a ticket kick-off event. Rather, you’ll be able to purchase tickets online and via telephone starting on designated dates for Partners and non-Partners. To take advantage of the Partners early ticketing and special pricing (as well as all the other great benefits of membership), all you need to do is join Partners at the $100 or above level.
