Jump Encore! was developed in 2010 as a children's performance company as part of Jump Dance Company. Jump Encore!'s children's performance company has been producing 2 children's musicals for the last 8 years directed by Kristina Kennedy Babcock. Jump Encore!'s children's theatre program creates theatre experiences that educate, challenge, and inspire their students. Jump Encore!'s program isn't like any in the area. Students enrolled in our children's production, rehearse once a week from August-May. This makes our program a great option for children enrolled in several extra curricular activities or families with busy schedules.
In June 2021, Jump Encore! announced they would be expanding their program to include adult professional productions. Jump Encore! is excited to begin producing family friendly productions to educate and stimulate the minds and imaginations of our audience of all ages through high-quality productions, year-round education, and community outreach. Our Professional performance company actors will work and perform as an ensemble to help bring out the intimacy and creativity of theater. Our exciting new program hopes to present several productions each season ranging from new releases to some of your favorite classics with a twist.
