International Junior Theatre Celebration

International Junior Theatre Celebration

Saturday 21st Oct, 2017 – Aotea Centre, Auckland.
Saturday 28th Oct, 2017 – Civic Theatre, Newcastle.

OzTheatrics and AMICI Trust, in collaboration with international partner iTheatrics and sponsor Music Theatre International, Australasia, will present the second annual Junior Theatre Celebration in October.

The Junior Theatre Celebration hosts national and international musical theatre celebrities and provides an opportunity for young people ages eight to eighteen years in Australia and New Zealand to celebrate their love of musicals and experience the transformative power of theatre. 

The day includes adjudications by local and international industry professionals, workshops for students, theatre celebrities, a New Works Showcase of titles soon to be available, awards ceremonies and the largest collection of musical theatre professional development under one roof.

Throughout the day, participating groups present a 10-minute excerpt from their recent Broadway Junior ™ musical in front of their peers and an adjudication panel of distinguished theatre professionals.

Following each performance, students receive valuable and constructive feedback from the adjudicators.

The Junior Theatre Celebration is inspired by the American Junior Theater Festival (JTF), held in January each year with over 6,000 participants in attendance.
