FOR studentsThe 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, iTheatrics workshops new adaptations of Broadway musicals for young performers. Each workshop consists of learning music, choreography, and staging, culminating in a presentation for the musical’s respective licensing company, the show’s creators, and the students’ families. Young performers get the hands-on experience of workshopping a new adaptation with some the finest directors, choreographers, and educators in the field. Titles for this summer include Anastasia, Spongebob the Musical, Dot and the Kangaroo, and Mean Girls.
The iTheatrics one-week programs run from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. Our one-week programs cost $695.00 per student. iTheatrics will be offering need-based scholarships to qualifying students. The program will take place at a state-of-the-art studio space in the heart of New York City. Students are responsible for their own housing, meals, and transportation. Program dates are as follows:
Monday, July 5 – Friday, July 9
Monday, July 12 – Friday, July 16
Monday, July 19 – Friday, July 23
Monday, July 26 – Friday, July 30
Show titles will be announced once casting is finalized. To ensure everyone’s safety, we will only be casting 25 students for each program. We are accepting students currently in 6th through 12th grade. Masks will be required at all times for all participants when they are not eating and/or drinking. If you cannot wear a mask, you will not be able to participate.
If you are interested in participating, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are not doing auditions this year and all registrations are due by June 2nd.
AUDITION IN NYC
Students will be asked to prepare 16 bars of a musical theater song and to bring sheet music with them as an accompanist will be provided. We also ask that students bring a hard-copy of this completed audition form with them. Additionally, if students would like to apply for a need-based scholarship, they must submit this scholarship form at their audition.
Auditions will be done in small groups, and students should expect to stay approximately 90 minutes for the audition. You will receive a confirmation time and the exact location of the auditions by February 25th. Audition slots will be available on a first come, first serve basis and there are a limited number of slots available. Make sure to sign up as soon as possible!

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
iTHEATRICS CHOREOGRAPHY VIDEOS
Our summers kick off with the filming of the iTheatrics Choreography Videos, an essential part of our educational musical adaptations. Resident Choreographer Steven G. Kennedy takes a select number of songs from each musical we work on and adapts the choreography to make it accessible to young performers.
These numbers are filmed by our fantastic team and features a company of young people we cast every year. Auditions occur both at the iTheatrics Junior Theater Festival and auditions in New York City. Keep your eyes peeled to our website for when that information is readily available.
For the iTheatrics Junior Theater Festival, we are looking for a group of high school and college-aged interns to complete a diverse set of tasks. From making sure our adjudication performance rooms are running smoothly to ensuring that mainstage presenters have exactly what they need—the work can be as planned out or as of-the-moment as possible. We’re looking for students who can handle the flexibility and rigor of a fast-pace environment, while always enjoying the joy of what we do – musical theater. Thank you to all who applied for the 2020 iTheatrics Junior Theater Festival Internship. Applications will reopen again in the fall of 2020.
