This year’s captains are Megan Borgerding, William Gomes, Heidi Krauss, Maya Mic, and Lucas Thurston. If you have any questions about being a JTC captain, ask one of them about what’s involved.

Also, check it out with your parents. This affects them too! Parents of captains may be asked to coordinate areas such as concessions, tickets, publicity, etc. Complete the application by Monday, May 1st. Theatre captains will be announced after the Aladdin production!

JTC Reunion

We are planning a reunion of JTC past and present. Here is some information about the project:
Who: All current and Alumni of JTC
What: Perform at (or attend) the first ever JTC Reunion Concert — dinner and a show
Where: On the JHS stage
When: Tentatively performing on July 12th, dress rehearsal would be the day of, or the day before (whichever works with a majority of everyone’s schedules!)
Why: Meet the talent of JTC from both past and present!

This event is meant to bring together JTC members and directors, even parents! We are looking for a few people who would be willing to perform a song at this event. You can accompany yourself, have someone else do it, or use a recording.  Heck, get a whole band together!! You can do solos, duets, trios, quartets or even just dance! We will be performing ON the stage in the auditorium and will be serving some small hors ‘d’oeuvres. Songs can be from any show your heart desires. We encourage a range of song genres i.e. comedy, ballads, jazzy, etc. Time limit for songs can be from 1 min. to about 4. We really want this to come together so if you have any questions or want to perform we’d love for you to contact us!

Help spread the word too! Ask your friends if they’d like to perform, or attend with you, even get your parents to come. This is a chance to reunite with old friends and meet new members of the company, say hi to old directors and also eat some food… (Because we all loved food during the run of a show).

Hope to hear from you by Friday, April 7th so we can see if we’ll have enough people interested to get the ball rolling on this!
