Junior Theatre Celebration New Zealand, in partnership with Music Theatre International Australasia and Travel Gang invite you to audition for the ultimate USA musical theatre performance adventure!

The Kiwi All-Stars will travel, accompanied by the team from Travel Gang, as a group, during the January School Holidays to New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. Successful All-Stars will spend time in New York City collaborating on a performance piece under the guidance of some of the best industry experts and Broadway performers. They will attend Broadway acting workshops and see the latest Broadway shows while also exploring the sights of New York City. In Atlanta, the students will join 6500 like-minded young performers at the Junior Theatre Festival presented by the Junior Theatre Group and iTheatrics. Kiwi All-Stars will perform their adjudication piece for feedback, attend skill development workshops presented by the world's best teaching artists, watch performances of brand new musicals and get advice from celebrity guests (past celebrities included Zac Efron and Darren Criss).


After the JTF Atlanta, the group will head to Los Angeles where they will take a VIP back-lot tour of Universal Studios to see the sets of hundreds of well-known films. The Hollywood sign will provide a great backdrop for the official tour photograph before the group visits the happiest place on earth… Disneyland… where they will be taken behind the scenes to participate in the Disney Performing Arts musical workshop and of course rides, rides and more rides.


Parents and siblings over the age of 5 are invited to join the celebration as adventure chaperones!


The Kiwi All-Stars program is a unique one-of-kind program that will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
