EdTA, in collaboration with New York City-based companies iTheatrics and Music Theatre International (MTI), created JumpStart Theatre, a scalable pilot program designed to build sustainable musical theatre programs where there previously were none. The pilot launched in Cincinnati in 2015. JumpStart Theatre is modeled after the successful Broadway Junior Musical Theatre Program founded by The Shubert Foundation, iTheatrics, and MTI in 2005 in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education. As of 2019, JumpStart Theatre is being implemented in Cincinnati, Ohio, San Diego, California, St. Louis, Missouri, and Atlanta, Georgia. Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, February 20 at 2pm ET for a presentation by the program’s leadership.
