Class Description

Interested in having your young performer experience musical theater Broadway style? This is a wonderful opportunity for young performers to prepare 15 minutes of one of MTI's Broadway Musical Jr pieces as a group. They perform for leading theater professionals and then receive feedback that will improve their performances and nurture their hearts to believe that they can become better. The students will attend incredible workshops, watch performances and stretch themselves as performers. Last year JTF Atlanta was attended by students from 29 states, South Korea, New Zealand and Australia and this opportunity is in our backyard. Past speakers and performers included Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Corey Cott, Darren Criss, Megan Hilty, and Tom Schumacher (President of Disney's Theatrical Group). Please see link to JTF for more great information.
