Enjoy a Night Outside of Your Apartment at the Jubilee Theatre

Founded by Rudy and Marian Eastman in Fort Worth, Texas on June 19, 1981, Jubilee Theatre is the original home of African-American theater in North Texas. Jubilee Theatre was incorporated in 1982 and received its 501(c)(3) status in May 1983.

Today, Jubilee continues to grow under the current skilled staff. Increased technical capabilities, including improved online tickets sales, new lighting technologies, and sound equipment, have all been added to enhance the overall theatre-going experience. With a strong financial base, growing audiences, a dedicated Board of Trustees and Staff, and a tradition of artistic integrity, Jubilee has maintained its status as a gem in the Fort Worth cultural and arts scene. We hope you will learn more about Jubilee first-hand by visiting the theatre and joining in our celebration of a proud history and a promising future.

Last performed on the Jubilee Theatre stage in 2010 and back by popular demand, this Tony-Award nominated musical, Blues in the Night, features over twenty five songs with vocal arrangements designed to have every audience member dancing in their seat!

Set in a rundown Chicago hotel in 1938, this musical revue focuses on three women’s relationships with the same ‘snake-of-a-man’ and their interweaving stories. Told through the torch songs and blues of Duke Ellington, Bessie Smith, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Alberta Hunter and more, Blues in the Night offers audiences an unforgettable experience set to the tunes of the early 1900s’ greatest musicians.

This showing of Blues in the Night is open to all ages and can be seen through August 28th.

Even though The Artistry at Craig Ranch Apartments in McKinney, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
