ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

All students attending JTF must be prepared to be an active team player and to present an ensemble-based story with many moving pieces. The nature of a JTF performance downplays “lead” characters and emphasizes group storytelling.

Conflicts must be submitted at the start of rehearsals.  Our rehearsal period is short and intense.  Therefore, only students with minimal or no conflicts will be considered for JTF 2022.

InnOVATION: $225 Rehearsal Fee

JTF Trip Fees (approximate fees based on 2021 rates):

$265/person participant fees (for each student or parent attending the festival) due in October or November, 2021.

Families are responsible for travel and lodging expenses to attend JTF. (InnOVATION Arts will reserve a block of hotel rooms.)
