Willow is thrilled to perform the role of "Little Red" in Into the Woods, Jr., on Dare to Dream Theatre's performance team for the 2014 Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta! The 2013 Junior Theater Festival was sponsored by Music Theater International, Disney Theatrical Productions, Playbill VIP, Disney’s Newsies and more. This is a really exciting opportunity for Willow, and we are so proud!
What is JTF?
Produced by iTheatrics and Theater of the Stars, the Junior Theater Festival is the biggest and best festival dedicated to young people and musical theatre.
The Junior Theater Festival brings together people from all aspects of theatre, ranging from students and teachers to Broadway professionals, under one roof to celebrate outstanding student musical theatre productions. The festival offers an enthusiastic environment for students and teachers to interact with thousands of others who share their passion for musical theatre. Each group performs a selection from a Broadway Junior or KIDS Collection musical for professional adjudication by a distinguished panel of international theatre professionals. Groups participate in interactive workshops lead by Broadway and West End professionals, meet celebrities, enjoy professional development, fellowship, and attend a world-class professional production.
This will be Dare to Dream's 5th year in attendance. Our goal this year is to raise the ENTIRE $16,000 for the trip. Will you help us? 20 people representing Dare to Dream Theatre will be attending the festival. Our group will be presenting a 15 minute segment from Into the Woods JR in front of a panel of Broadway and professional judges. Will you help us toward our goal? Each attendee has a goal of raising (or otherwise contributing) $800 to cover their costs.
