Junior Theatre Festival
MCCA’s pre-professional musical theatre company has been attending the Junior Theatre Festival since 2017. The Junior Theatre Festival (JTF) is the world’s biggest and best celebration of young people performing musical theatre. JTF brings together student musical theatre troupes from all over the world for a weekend of musical theatre mayhem and madness. Each troupe performs fifteen minutes from a Broadway Junior show for adjudication by a panel of musical theatre experts. The weekend also features professional development for teachers, workshops for students and parents, a New Works Showcase featuring new musical adaptations soon to be released and concludes with a grand finale concert headlined by Broadway’s best! The Junior Theatre Festival is sponsored by Playbill, Disney Musicals and Music Theatre International. It is an empowering weekend that provides students a unique and professional musical theatre experience.
MCCA’s pre-professional musical theatre training and performance program is an accelerated training program that helps prepare students for the professional world. The program is exciting, high energy, and requires serious commitment from both students and parents. The program consists of summer & winter training sessions, participation in the Junior Theatre Festival, and the full performance of a Broadway Jr. Musical.
GOALS & PHILOSOPHIES
Our common goal is to nurture our young performers and to help them grow into creative, collaborative, compassionate, professional, kind, hard-working young adults. We want them to be prepared for the professional world in whatever they choose to pursue. Thank you for allowing us the privilege to work with your child and for working with us to help create the best possible environment for their growth and success.
To create dynamic, thoughtful, professional performances
To enrich and enhance the students skills in acting, dance, voice, rehearsal etiquette, and audition techniques.
To create a positive and safe environment where students are free to take risks, be bold, be their true selves, and embrace the uniqueness of those around them.
Our goal is to create a group that celebrates the unique individual as well as the commonality of the love of performing to the highest level.
