About Theatre@Home Jr
Theatre@Home Jr is under the direction and supervision of the Founder & Artistic Director of Theatre@Home, Justin Christopher Odon. Theatre@Home Jr features 30 young artists from around the United States and Canada ranging between the ages of 7 and 14.
The Theatre@Home Jr Ensemble made their first appearance in Theatre@Home’s virtual concert series in August 2020 during Theatre@Home’s third virtual sing-along concert installment entitled Theatre@Home Goes To Hollywood: A Celebration of TV & Movie Musicals. The first ever Theatre@Home Jr Ensemble performance featured only three members singing Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Then on December 2, 2020, Theatre@Home announced open call auditions for the expansion of the Jr Ensemble. As auditions began, the Jr Ensemble was featured in Theatre@Home’s holiday special that featured 25 Christmas songs performed by a cast of over 60 members from around the nation. During the holiday special, the Jr Ensemble featured six members performing The Polar Express. Now, with the growth of Theatre@Home’s Jr Ensemble, two virtual concert productions are set just for the young artists to perform and have their very own spotlight moment.
