OTT is going to Broadway!! (Well...a few of us.)
Although we've had to cancel our summer programme this year; due to a lack of funding. (Yes, we are still bummed about it....) We couldn't let an entire summer go by without doing something!So we decided that we'd use the small amount of money we did have to help four of our most promising students take part in the 2013 Broadway Student Summit, which is held in New York City. You might be asking, "Why only four?" We absolutely wish we could take more students but that's all the summit could accommodate right now. The summer session is sold out, but don't fear! We're already looking at doing the trip again--maybe next Easter! For more information about the programme visit: Also check out "The Wall" on OTT's website for daily updates on the trip, starting from July 10th through 15th.

Chad Montplaisir, Charlene Morris, Cherise Clarke and Kwasi Perry.

So that everyone can benefit from this trip, we'll be holding a 2-day workshop upon our return so we can share with you all we've learnt , and so we can have a fun day or two doing what we love best--PERFORMING!!!! So listen out for further details as the workshop will take place this August.

We had a lovely day with american singer and rapper Shea Rose.

6:15pm, Frank Collymore Hall

Join us as we join the students of "PA" as they journey through 4 years of hardwork, love, joy and pain
at the celebrated Performing Arts School in New York City.
Come dressed in your 80's best to win cool prizes for the Best Dressed Dude and Dudette!

The cat is finally out of the bag!
Wait for it........
OTT's 2012 final production will be "Fame Jr." !!
Show Date: August 23rd, 2012
Place: Frank Collymore Hall.

From the hit motion pictures, television series, and international stage success, FAME is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME JR. is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today. 

This year (2012), we are happy to let you know that Operation Triple Threat is now an official member of Musical Theatre International (MTI). We are extremely excited about this because it means our participants will have the incredible opportunity to be a part of internationally celebrated musical theatre productions—an invaluable experience for any young person to add to his/her performance resume. (See "Partners/Supporters" for more details.)

OTT's Director, Janelle Headley-Newton, was chosen to be highlighted in the UNDP/ARC Magazine's Youth-IN Visions Webisode project. It was an awesome opportunity to spread the word about Operation Triple Threat! 
Thank you Holly Bynoe and Nadia Huggins! Also a BIG "thank you" to the OTT 2011 students who participated in the video shoot-- you guys were awesome, as usual :)
