WHAT IS THE JUNIOR THEATER FESTIVAL -- "JTF"?

Team-focused experience for a minimum of 20 student performers, ages 10-18, to prepare for and attend this national festival in Atlanta, GA, each January.  Primary goals are personal growth and enrichment for each student while developing a 15-minute, team-focused "mini musical" showcase for a competitive national environment with adjudication by performing arts professionals.

  • Annual convention of 6,500+ people from across the USA, gathered to celebrate music theater 

  • Long weekend filled with energy, fun, judging, performances & workshops

  • Opportunity to see what other theater companies are performing and how you compare

  • Chance to bond with actors from THT and an opportunity to meet other kids who love theater


WHO CAN ATTEND JTF?

  • Boys and girls, ages 10-18, who must audition

  • Production Team members

  • Adult Chaperones  ** mandatory for team members ages 10-12

  • Adult Guests

 

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THIS TRIP?

  • All local instruction and round-trip travel arrangements

  • Team t-shirt to be worn during "mini-musical" performance in Atlanta

  • Round-trip bus and airfare to/from Manitowoc and Atlanta

  • Four nights lodging 

  • Student meal allowance of $100 

  • Festival participation fee (t-shirt, educational workshops, special guest speakers, yearbook)

WHY ARE REHEARSALS NEEDED?
Each attending group performs their 15-minute "mini-musical" of selected scenes and songs that highlight an MTI "Jr."  production for nationally recognized judges.  They score each group's performance and provide immediate feedback to the actors and production crew.  Highest scoring groups and individuals are recognized at the Awards Ceremony.

Treehouse Theater will strive to bring another polished, professional-looking "mini-musical" piece to perform at JTF 2020.  In order for this to occur, ALL members of the Performing Team must be committed  to properly preparing for and attend all rehearsals.
