Opening Number


Georgia Junior Thespians would like any interested Troupe Directors to participate and produce a musical number as a part of the Conference’s Opening Number. Directors have the option to select a musical number from the approved list to produce, rehearse the musical number on their own schedule at their own school with their own students, and bring it to the Georgia Junior Thespian Conference to present as a portion of the Opening Number. Schools are responsible for securing sheet music and karaoke tracks for musical number. Troupes will only be allotted a three minute performance and the troupe director is responsible for cutting the track and sending it into the Opening Number Chair by the deadline communicated to them. Slots are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Submissions will be accepted between October 1, 2017 and December 4, 2017.

In conjunction with the Opening Number we are offering two opportunities for your troupe to be “involved” in the opening number by sending in video clips or still shots to be used.

  • We are looking for you, someone from your troupe, or your entire troupe to hold up a sign reading #Noneofusarealone. We are looking for you to share your thoughts on the phrase “None of us are alone” or explain how thespians/theatre has helped you feel part of a community. This should be presented in the style of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. Submissions should be 10 seconds or less.
  • We are looking for still shots or videos of your students bowing at the end of a performance.

Pictures and videos should be sent to All-State Show Committee by November 17, 2017.

Submissions will be accepted from October 1, 2017 to early December 4, 2017.
