“We must all do theatre, to find out who we are, and to discover who we could become.”
Asheville Junior Theater (AJT) is a boutique youth theater company dedicated to helping children express themselves both on and off the stage. We are an answer to the past two years of dark theater opportunities for many kids. We provide engaging, innovative and high quality theater education and productions for children of all ages and backgrounds. We value creativity, liberty, and face-to-face theatrical opportunities. Whether your child is simply being introduced to the stage or joining us as a seasoned performer, Asheville Junior Theater welcomes you.

Increase their happiness through playful peer interactions
Identify emotions and understand the emotions of their fellow actors
