The Junior Theater Festival is a festival produced by iTheatrics for children ages 8-18 held every year in Sacramento and Atlanta, GA. It is designed for serious minded performers who are committed to working hard and delivering an amazing performance. Organizations from all over the world attend each year and present a 15 minute condensed version of a Broadway Jr. show under the license of Music Theatre International or Disney Musicals. The weekend festival includes the show presentation, workshops, guest speakers, awards, a dance party, and a ticket to a Broadway-style performance. All of this is available for the organization presenting their show, the directors, and the parent chaperones.

We will be putting a class together for this project. Students who want to be involved in the class must sign up and pay the $100.00 deposit by April 10th. All students in the class will be cast in a show from the Music Theatre International Junior collection and that cast will be considered the “JTF19 class”. After we know how many kids will be participating, we will pick the show and cast it using all of the young actors in the “ JTF19 class”. This is a great opportunity for our kids to do a production, meet other kids from around the United States and beyond who love musical theatre, see working professionals and take workshops.

The JTF19 class will have a rehearsal schedule based on their conflicts. The cast will also have fundraisers and do a send off performance for Helena audiences.

Sneak Previews

These are the final dress rehearsals for our main stage shows. Currently enrolled theatre school students are invited to watch with the understanding that the show is not quite finished. It is a great learning opportunity for all the students. Not all of the shows are age appropriate and we will let you know, however, we feel it’s important for the students to see as much live theatre as possible and are open to discussion about all of the productions. No parents or family members are invited.
