Youth Theatre


Places everyone! The Youth Theatre Program is an all-inclusive educational theatre program for grades 2-10, Theatre Chaverim (2-5) and Teen Theatre (6-10). Youth Theatre produces five shows each year, each age group doing one show each semester (and Teen Theatre also producing a summer production). In addition to learning about theatre, we strive to help students build confidence, improve communication and increase skills. Theatre is an experience your child will never forget; it’s a unique group effort that requires everyone’s participation to bring a show to life. We invite you to take the stage with the J Youth Theatre Program!

Tickets for Youth Theatre productions can also be purchased by calling the New Jewish Theatre Box Office at 314-442-3175.

Youth Theatre Audition Workshop (3rd – 10th Grades)

Workshops are designed to help children learn techniques to replace nerves with confidence, making the challenging audition process comfortable and easy to overcome. Participants learn how to prepare for cold readings in a way that will make them stand out from the crown. Younger participants (grades 2-5) will also learn part of a song and choreography for an upcoming J production while teens will focus on character work and scenes from the play. Workshop includes improvisation and games.
