Group registrations now open for JTCNZ18

Now in its second year, the 2018 Junior Theatre Celebration New Zealand (JTCNZ) provides an opportunity for young Kiwi’s ages 8 to 18 years to celebrate their love of musicals and experience the transformative power of theatre.  The event is produced by AMICI Trust’s Junior Theatre NZ, in collaboration with international partner iTheatrics and sponsor Music Theatre International (Australasia).

“This is a truly amazing opportunity for New Zealand’s young performers to be recognised as having the ability to create high-class Music Theatre.  We are so excited and grateful to have the team from iTheatrics (NY) and Music Theatre International come to work with our NZ performers and teachers,” says Emma Bishop, from Junior Theatre NZ.

This year’s programme will see groups from around New Zealand come to Auckland for the Celebration Day on Saturday 3rd November.  Groups will perform a ten-minute extract from their Broadway JR production for adjudication by our amazing panel from iTheatrics alongside international and local industry leaders.

For your young performers it will be an event like no other as they get feedback on their performance, participate in workshops and then enjoy the closing ceremony.

As a registered group you have the opportunity to nominate four performers to take part in the inaugural JTNZ Pilot Programme. 

This programme will see a number of young performers from around the country workshop Disney's Newsies JR with the team from iTheatrics (NY).  The group will then perform the pilot as part of the Celebration Opening.
