Our Guiding Principles
Anyone who wants to participate can
Registration fees are low and non-prohibitive. They are waived entirely for children who may be under severe financial constraints. Everyone gets a part regardless of ability. The only condition of participation is adherence to our code of conduct.
Respect everyone as an individual
JKT is an inclusive environment that embraces individuals who may not ordinarily succeed in mainstream sports and leisure activities. We work with the individual’s unique challenges, support them in a team environment, and create the conditions for a positive experience.
Honor the discipline of theatre arts
Adherence to JKT’s written code of conduct is a mandatory requirement. Through modeling our code, demonstrating consistent theatre discipline and production values we impart life skills that will benefit children in their formative years.
Find the joy and meaning
JKT is often the first exposure rural children may have to live theatre. It is our responsibility to help all participants find the joy, wonder, and sense of possibility this art form has to offer.
