Parkway Playhouse Junior Is Preparing For Competition!

logo_200x200_000275From January 17-19, twenty-eight students from Parkway Playhouse Junior’s Production of Mulan Jr will be competing at the 2014 Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta Georgia.

We’re excited to announce that six of our students will be highlighted at the festival this year.  At the end of the Sunday Afternoon Awards Ceremony, six students from ten different groups are chosen to perform a number together.  For the 2014 big festival finale, six students from Parkway Playhouse Junior were chosen and will be singing “This Is Our Story” from Shrek Jr.

Those students featured are: Lily Bartleson, Logan Bryant, Kade Hoilman, Taylor Hutchison, Emily Sigmon and Logan Walden.


We are proud to announce that former Parkway Playhouse Junior student, Haven Jenkins, will be traveling to the Junior Theater Festival again, this time as an intern.

Only a select few are chosen from over a hundred college student applicants from across the country, who have previously attended the Junior Theater Festival.

Interns provide general festival assistance throughout the weekend and attend a special master class with members of the Junior Theater Festival staff.

The Junior Theater Festival began this internship in 2013 for former students who have shown maturity, leadership skills, and a desire to learn about all aspects of theater.
