“The Junior Theater Festival is the best experience any actor could hope to take part in. From the moment you arrive, you are surrounded by hundreds of others who share the same passion and dedication to performing as you do. Throughout the weekend, the memories you make, and the people you meet, will stay with you forever. The festival, while being fun, also teaches many valuable lessons such as how to love, how to listen, and how to look at everyone through the same eyes. The Junior Theater Festival is and will always be my favortie memory and I cherish the moments I made there.”
— Dawson, Participant

Together as artists, instructors, staff, and parents we became more than our roles. We became one mind, one body, one soul. We had Kind Hearts, Fierce Minds, and Brave Spirits. The stage, the people, the education was inspirational. An experience never forgotten.

Dawson McDonald was recognized as an Outstanding Male Actor for his portrayal of Cosmo Brown!

Attending JTF last year with my son was a fabulous experience! My son loved being surrounded by so many kids that shared the same passion for theater as he did and this experience allowed him to bond more closely with his [Poison Apple Teens] troupe. It was a great opportunity to see him in his element. The kids have a fabulous time connecting with each other and those around them and learning from professionals in the field. Poison Apple made it a truly a wonderful and enriching experience for everyone involved!
