Jewish Teen Theatre Initiative

JTTI is a new, interest-based youth initiative for OC Jewish teens ages 13-18 interested in all aspects of theater production, including playwriting, acting, set-design, choreography, sound, promotion, and more. 

Thanks to a generous Teen Engagement & Wellness Initiative grant from the Jewish Federation of Orange County, each of the six events are offered at no charge to participants. Voluntary donations in support of this program are welcomed and appreciated.

We understand that teens are busy and families travel during the summer. Even if your child is only able to participate in one or two programs, we still encourage them to enroll.


JTTI provides a range of programs that can be added to theatrical resumes, college applications, while helping to forge new friendships. RSVP today!
