Junior Theatre Festival Australia 2024

After our successful run of The Little Mermaid Jr we are now setting our sights on Newcastle!

The Junior Theatre Festival is Australia’s largest celebration of young people and musical theatre!
Alongside JTF Atlanta, JTF Sacramento, JTF Europe and JTF New Zealand, the Junior Theatre Festival Australia enjoys a large network of JTF festivals worldwide.
Produced by OzTheatrics and under the educational and artistic supervision of iTheatrics, sponsored by Music Theatre International Australasia, the Junior Theatre Festival Australia (JTF Australia) brings students, teachers and industry professionals together to celebrate outstanding student musical theatre productions.
Festival events include: adjudications, student workshops, professional development for teachers, the New Works Showcase, an awards ceremony and the largest collection of Aussie musical theatre lovers under one roof. Held annually in Newcastle, NSW, JTF Australia has become a must attend musical theatre event. The festival welcomes special industry and celebrity guests each year and since its inception in 2016, JTF Australia has grown from 250 people in attendance to over 1,000 attendees. It is a weekend of true musical theatre madness that is not to be missed!

From auditions a group of performers aged 8 – 18 will rehearse and perform a 15 minute presentation of The Little Mermaid Jr at the JTF in Newcastle on Saturday 26th October. They will also have the opportunity to attend workshops with theatre professionals from Australia and Broadway.
