Junior Theater Festival - January 17, 18 & 19, 2020

The Junior Theater Festival began in 2003 as a way to celebrate and encourage students and teachers who are presenting musicals in their schools and communities. Each year, participating groups seem to bring even more creativity, enthusiasm and joy to this event, and in turn, iTheatrics responds by creating more opportunities and experiences. As of 2010, the Junior Theater Festival has become an annual event.

The festival brings together people from all aspects of theatre, ranging from students and teachers to Broadway professionals, under one roof to celebrate outstanding student musical theatre productions.

The festival offers an enthusiastic environment for students and teachers to interact with thousands of others who share their passion for musical theatre. Each group attending performs a selection from a Broadway Junior or KIDS Collection musical for professional adjudication by a distinguished panel of international theatre professionals. Groups participate in interactive workshops lead by Broadway and West End professionals.

Performances - May 8 & 9, 2020

The entire show will be performed at CCM May 8 (7:00) and May 9 (3:00) in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater. Other opportunities for the students to perform selections from the show will be explored throughout the year.
