About JMT...

Jenkintown Music Theatre has been bringing quality musical theater to Jenkintown and the surrounding area for over 70 years. What began as a yearly variety show has grown into one of the area's premier community theater groups.


Jenkintown Music Theatre is proud to support the performing arts programs of the Jenkintown School District. Incorporated as a non-profit group in late 2013, Jenkintown Music Theatre is continually looking to grow in efforts to support JSD by producing quality productions each year.

Long-time JMT directors Dolly and Frank Kuykendall were at the JMT helm for over 60 years and laid the foundation on which JMT continues to build. We are honored to perform in the Kuykendall Auditorium at JHS, which was named in recognition of their years of dedication to Jenkintown. Dolly retired in 2015 and passed the baton onto locally acclaimed Director, Debbie Schrager. Debbie has been performing in and directing shows in the Philadelphia area for decades and JMT is thrilled to have her. Debbie and her Co-Musical Directors, Konnie Stark and Emily Ballentine Erb, are continuing in the same tradition of excellence for which JMT is known.

We thank you for your continued support of Jenkintown Music Theatre. We couldn't do it without you!
