Youth Theatre

Thank you to Ignite Theatre Co. for costume provision

Places everyone! The Youth Theatre Program is an all-inclusive educational theatre program for grades K-9. 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!

Check back later for tickets to Youth Theatre’s Spring Musical: Matilda Jr.

What makes the J Youth Theatre Program so unique?

  • Everyone who auditions is cast in every show
  • We welcome first-time actors, as well as those who are more experienced
  • Rehearsals are concentrated on Sunday afternoons until right before the production
  • You become part of the Youth Theatre family, creating bonds, collaborating with friends and sharing your progress and successes as performers

Youth Theatre Spring Musical: Matilda Jr.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda Jr., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda Jr. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
