Villains are taking over Playhouse Square! Enjoy an evening of mischief and revelry in the theater lobbies and stages as we celebrate a wonderfully wicked affair.

At JBB, indulge in endless cocktails, live entertainment, dancing, games of chance, a raffle & silent auction, hors d'oeuvres & dessert and more. It's a night you won't forget.

Jump Back Ball is the annual fundraiser hosted by Partners, Playhouse Square’s official young professionals group. It is chaired by Partners Board Members Alexis Fender, Ryan Herman and Lindsey Jump.
