Youth Theatre


The JCC’s Youth Theatre program provides an energetic creative outlet for kids and teens in grades 3-12 to learn about theatre and the arts, and for experienced actors to try more challenging roles. Auditions for the 2019/2020 season are Sunday, October 20 and Wednesday, October 23. Rehearsals will be twice weekly, on Sunday afternoon and Wednesday evening, culminating in performances February 15 and 16, 2020.

Children’s Theatre 2019-20 Season Auditions

Children and teens in grades 3-12 are invited to audition for the JCC Children’s Theatre production of Peter Pan Jr.! Come prepared to sing a verse and chorus of a song of your choice. You are welcome to bring accompanying piano music or digital recording to sing along with. Please wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to learn basic choreography. The audition will last no longer than 45 minutes.

Rehearsals begin October 30 and will be at the Boonshoft CJCE on Wednesdays from 6:15-8PM and Sundays 1-4PM. Show dates are February 15 and 16, 2020. There is a $150 program fee for participation.
