Welcome to Festival 2016!
District Three Jr. ITS Festival 2016 will be on Friday, December 16 & Saturday, December 17 at Dillard High School Center for the Arts in Fort Lauderdale.

On the evening of the 17th, all participants gather in the Mainstage auditorium to celebrate the festival with videos, music and recognition of Thespian efforts and achievements.
