Shea’s 2019 Junior Theater Celebration has been expanded into TWO days!
Shea’s Performing Arts Center and iTheatrics join forces once again to offer schools and arts organizations the opportunity to participate in the sixth annual Shea’s Junior Theater Celebration. All organizations and schools that produce a musical with upper elementary and middle school students in the greater Buffalo area are invited to apply. This free event is created and artistically supervised by iTheatrics, the premiere creative consultants in educational musical theater based in New York City, and offers students and teachers a chance to interact and learn with others who share their passion for musical theater in a professional environment.
This year, we have expanded the program to two days! Selected schools and organizations will now have the option to participate in Shea’s Junior Theater Celebration on either Friday, May 31 or Saturday, June 1.The Celebration will take place at Shea’s 710 Theatre from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on both days, and each group will only participate in one of the days.
During the Celebration, students from each program will perform one musical selection from their show for a distinguished panel of theater education professionals. These professionals will provide valuable feedback to the students about their ability to tell an engaging story, their performance skills, and their work as an ensemble. Additionally, students and teachers will both participate in interactive workshops that will provide further training and instill a deeper understanding of the art form. This event is not a competition, participating schools and organizations are brought together to share in a day of musical celebration filled with performances, educational experiences, and excitement.
If your school or organization is interested in participating in the sixth annual Shea’s Junior Theater Celebration, send your application to email@example.com or fax it to 716-847-1644. Applications are available and will be accepted until all spaces are filled.
