Junior Theater Festival

JTF is the ultimate celebration of children’s theatre for the serious minded student.  In the past DRMT actors have received in-person instruction from numerous industry professionals such as Thomas Schumacher, President Disney Theatrical Group, and legendary composer, Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid,  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and Sister Act). In addition, special guest artists including Pasek and Paul (Dear Evan Hansen), Cynthia Erivo (The Color Purple), Megan Hilty (Wicked), and Caissie Levy (Disney’s Frozen) have been flown in to perform for the kids! 

Tuition:

Tuition is $1,890 and includes four nights hotel accommodations at Hyatt House Atlanta Cobb Galleria (breakfast is included at the hotel), admission for two participants (parent and student), DRMT instructional fee and a t-shirt.  Additional participants can attend for a cost of $260.   Deadline for additional participants is October 1st.

Tuition does not include transportation to and from Atlanta.  

Tuition Payment Schedule:

A non-refundable deposit of $150 is due September 1st with 4 installments each $435 due the first of each month beginning with October 1st and concluding with January 1st, 2022.
