JTF - 2023

January 13th - January 15th, 2023

Renaissance Waverly Hotel Atlanta

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.

This year marks the 20th anniversary for JTF and promises to be bigger and better than ever.  We are excited to be able to celebrate their 20th anniversary by staying for the first time on-site at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel Atlanta!  No need to drive over to the convention center this year.  You have the option of staying in a King bed room with a maximum occupancy of 2 (rollaway beds may be added to this room type for an additional cost of $50 bringing occupancy up to 3) OR a 2 Queen bed room with a maximum occupancy of 4 (no additional charge).  There is a $25 daily parking charge and breakfast is NOT included at this hotel.

Tuition is $2,250 and includes four nights hotel accommodations at Renaissance Waverly Hotel Atlanta, admission for two participants (parent and student), DRMT instructional fee and a t-shirt for both parent and student.  Additional participants can attend for a cost of $300.   Deadline for additional participants is September 15th.
