Junior Theater Celebration Charlotte

Junior Theater Family,

While we sadly had to cancel Junior Theater Celebration 2020, we look forward to seeing students, teachers and volunteers at next year’s event. For participating school groups, please ‘save the date’ for Junior Theater Celebration 2021 which will be held March 29-31, 2021 at the Knight Theater.

Help Us Raise $25,000 For Junior Theater Celebration Charlotte Musical Kits And Transportation For Area Schools.

The Junior Theater Celebration Charlotte offers an enthusiastic, educational environment for students and teachers to interact with hundreds of others who share their passion for musical theatre. Created and directed by iTheatrics, a premiere creative consultant in educational musical theatre based in New York City, in association with the leading theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI) and Blumenthal Performing Arts Education Department.

During the celebration, each school group performs a selection from their school musical before iTheatrics professionals who provide feedback to help the students improve their communication with the audience, engagement in the performance, understanding of the material and connection to the lyrics and movement.

The students also participate in interactive workshops while their teachers participate in a professional development session with iTheatrics educators. Most importantly, Junior Theater Celebration Charlotte brings together theater enthusiasts from all avenues – ranging from Charlotte Area students, teachers and volunteers to professionals who work on Broadway – under one roof to celebrate and encourage excellence in student musical theatre productions. The program is free to participating area schools. 

More than 2,000 students and teachers will gather at the Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts and perform for their peers in March 2021. Your support helps to provide kids the benefit of working as a team to create something they are proud of.
