My students are beyond excited to be one of one hundred group’s participating in the 10th annual Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta Georgia next weekend. They have been doing a phenomenal job in rehearsals for a 15 minute version of The Music Man. Run by Itheatrics and sponsored by Playbill, Music Theater International and Disney, the Junior Theater Festival is a celebration of musical theater in schools. It is a great way for students to meet other kids from all over the country and even all over the world who share a common interest. Personally, I can’t wait to network with other theater professionals and reconnect with many I’ve met at several workshops I’ve attended in the last year. I can’t wait to be inspired by all the workshops, performances and speakers at this amazing event with over 4500 people.

My students will be live tweeting and Instagraming the entire weekend and it sure to be very entertaining ride. Check back after next weekend for an update on how it went.
