Coming Soon: Junior Theatre Festival Auditions

   First Stage Theatre Company in Huntington, W.Va., has been accepted to the Junior Theatre Festival (JTF) in Atlanta again this coming winter to perform and learn from professionals in the field of musical theatre. 

   But, this year they’re going to try something new! The traveling cast attending JTF 2016 will not be tied to a full-length play. 

   JTF 2016 is an awesome weekend long experience for kids to learn and perform with over 3,000 peers from across the country. Sponsored by iTheatrics, MTI, Disney, and Playbill. The event allows for showcasing a 15-minute show selection, workshop classes, guest speakers and performances. It is an awesome event!

   To audition, actors must be 10 years old by Sept. 1, 2015, and have performed or worked tech for at least one First Stage production previously.  

   An informational Parents Meeting will be held to answer questions (parents are not required to attend for their child to audition, although it is encouraged).

   Parents Meeting: Tuesday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. They will discuss deadlines, financial commitment, fundraising, rehearsal days/times, and other trip/travel information.

   Audition Date: Saturday, July 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

   Location for the Meeting and Auditions: Pea Ridge United Methodist Church at 5747 East Pea Ridge Road in Huntington.

   Auditioners should prepare 32 - 64 bars or 1-2 minutes of a musical theater song (NOT a pop song). An accompanist and CD player will be available. Bring sheet music or a karaoke track - please, no a cappella auditions. Actors should be prepared to learn a short dance. 

   Rehearsals will begin in the fall. The Junior Theatre Festival will be one long weekend in January in Atlanta. Festival Dates: January 15-17, 2016
