Junior Theater Festival

Music Theater Competitions of America

For 2021, in addition to the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, we will be taking another competition group to Musical Theatre Competitions of America (MTCA) held in Fullerton, California.

JTF is a great experience for the serious minded theater student. Students are given the opportunity not only to compete, but to participate in workshops held by industry professionals. Past years we were able to listen to and meet with Thomas Schumacher, Producer and President of Disney Theatrical Group. Also, direct from Broadway, actors from Disney’s “Newsies” performed for the group. In addition, Alan Menken, composer of such great musicals as “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “Sister Act” to name a few. Most recently, Caissie Levy, who plays Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen” on Broadway, was flown down to Atlanta to perform for the group!

MTCA is very similar to JTF on a smaller scale.  There is an adjudication with feedback from industry professionals, workshops, and an awards ceremony held at Disneyland with a day at the park included.

Audition and participation in Summer Camp are prerequisites.

Auditions for JTF 2021 and Musical Theatre Competitions of America 

For our DRMT 2021 competition teams we are holding auditions online!  To audition, just follow these simple steps:

     2.) Include a “slate” at the beginning of the video with your name, age, school for 2020-2021, and the song title.

     3.) Upload your audition as an unlisted video to YouTube.

     4.) Email a link of the YouTube video to info@mydrmt.com with a subject line of DRMT Travel Teams 2021.
