The mission of our Competition Team is to create a positive and healthy competitive atmosphere by giving students opportunities to participate in musical theatre festivals and competitions nationwide.  We not only train our students to be the best performers they can be, but also professional work ethic and be healthy competitors. By the end of each season, it is our goal that our competition team understands the idea of an ENSEMBLE and the importance of teamwork in musical theatre and beyond.

For the 2024/25 season, City Springs Theatre Conservatory has been given a special opportunity to pilot a brand new JR. musical for Music Theatre International as part of their MTI Pilot School program.  This August, we will perform 9 TO 5 JR.

Following the show in August, the competition team will return in Winter 2024 to rehearse their official 15 minute cut of Disney’s High School Musical One-Act Edition for the Junior Theatre Festival, held in January 2025.  Students who want to be part of this program MUST BE AVAILABLE for BOTH the August show and Junior Theater Festival performance, no exceptions.
