We are making plans to attend the Junior Theatre West Festival in Sacramento, CA in February 6-10, 2020! And we want you to join us!
SIGN UP NOW! THE SOONER WE CAN LOOK INTO AIRFARE THE CHEAPER THIS TRIP GETS.
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 non-refundable deposit by April 1st. 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 “JTF20 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 “ JTF20 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 JTF20 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.
How many will be in the cast?
16-40 participants will be cast. We must have 1 chaperone for every 4 kids so how many we can cast will depend on how many chaperones we get.
What will we do at the Junior Theatre Festival (JTF)?
Groups perform a 15 minute selection from one Broadway JR or KIDS collection show for adjudication, participate in workshops, participate in other fun events such as “tech Olympics”, watch outstanding performances by their peers.
How old do you have to be?
8-18 years old.
Does this take the place of my regular theatre school class?
No, you must be enrolled in a regular after-school class to be considered for the JTF18 class. If you decide to leave the theatre school class you will also no longer be in the JTF18 class/cast.
Will there be chaperones?
Yes, we will need one chaperone for every four students attending the festival.
Do the chaperones travel for free?
Does it cost money?
Yes. See the expense details at the end of this document.
Will there be fundraising involved?
Yes, unless you want to pay for the entire trip yourself and forget the fundraising.
Will there be scholarships available?
Can I use Frequent Flyer miles for airfare?
Yes. You can make your own airfare or transportation plans as long as you have a parent with you. You will then be responsible for your own transfers to and from the airport/hotel.
When will you be casting?
Can I make payments?
Yes! All students will be asked to put down a $100.00 non-refundable deposit by April 1st to be considered. After that you will make $100.00 payments per month through January 2020 if you would like to make payments. After October 1st you must have $600.00 deposited on your account which at that time cannot be refunded if you withdraw.

Beware of some common mistakes:
1. Grandstreet is one word (not Grand Street)
2. List your shows with the most recent at the top
3. Don’t list a category if you have no experience (i.e commercials, film)
4. Remember to list your special abilities and make sure you can actually do those things.
