For Kids

The iTheatrics Junior Theater Academy


The iTheatrics Junior Theater Academy (JTA) offers you the chance to perform a brand new adaptation of a musical in a workshop setting in New York City! Every summer, it’s a different line-up. Shows are selected by the various musical theater licensing companies including Music Theatre International, the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization, Tams-Witmark Library, Inc., and Samuel French. Each new show will be rehearsed in a workshop environment with an informal presentation at the end for both the authors, creators and families.


You’ll be performing with kids from all over who love musicals as much as you do. Because we are performing musicals that are actively being developed, we focus on storytelling not production value. Our shows are performed script-in-hand and rehearsals are fast paced and intense. You’re going to learn a lot about being in a professional musical, and you’re going to learn it very quickly! So if you think you’ve got the passion to perform in one of our workshops, apply today. Check out details below for the 2017 iTheatrics Junior Theater Academy Season!

Auditions for 2017 JTA are now complete.
