Theater J has announced auditions for its first-ever Summer Musical Theater Camp programs, The Jungle Book, running from July 1-18, 2024, and The Wizard Of Oz, running from July 22–August 8, 2024.

These musical theater programs are an opportunity for rising 2nd-9th graders to spend the summer singing, dancing, acting, making new friends, and performing on the Theater J stage. No experience is necessary, just a love for the performing arts, and no preparation is necessary for auditions: students will learn a dance and may read from a script. Auditions are for program placement only; casting for the productions will take place during the summer.

Auditions are being held Tuesday, March 5, from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM, and Sunday, March 10, from 10:00AM – 12:00PM at Theater J, located at 1529 16th St NW. The programs run Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, with a culminating performance at 7:00PM on the final Thursday evening of each session. The program cost is $1,795 for EDCJCC members and Theater J subscribers and $1,955 for non-members/non-subscribers. Need-based scholarships are available.
