T3 Triple Threat Youth Mentors (T3)

Meet The Directors

Morie Williams:

Originally from Los Angeles, Morie grew up in San Jose California where he found a love for performing with San Jose Children’s Musical Theater. Morie has performed his way across seven continents and over 200 counties.

Morie has always believed that when a performer gets to a certain level in their career, they should help someone else along the way. Thus, T3 Triple Threat Youth Mentors was born. Some of Williams credits include performing in events with the likes of Lorna Luft (daughter of Judy Garland), Chita Rivera, Oscar-winning actress/singer Jennifer Hudson, Latin pop-star and American celebrity Charo, Marty Thomas from the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Wicked and the late Nell Carter of the Broadway musical Ain’t Misbehavin’.

In response to COVID-19 and state-wide conditions, T3 has moved its programs outside. In time “The Show Will Go On”, but for now we’ll continue to train & educate our students in the safest and healthiest of environments. The health and safety of our students is our number one priority. All classes are held outside, mask are worn at all times and physical distance is always maintained. Click through on the link below for our full safety and operating plan. We welcome your solutions, resources, and important information that helps our community move through this together. In fact, feel free to email us. Morie Williams Executive Director Click through on the link below for our full safety and operating plan. Click Here for COVID-19 Operating Plan


8 through 18-year-olds. A good attitude and willingness to learn is more important than experience. We aim to keep students in three age groups:
1) 8-11
2) 12-15
3) 16-18

There may also some production spots for those interested in learning about this side of the show process. (directing, stage managing, technical theatre, etc.)


“The Best of Broadway JR In The Park” is a musical theatre workshop. Exploring Pop Rock musical styling students will train with a “Triple Threat” mindset. A Triple Threat is an industry label for someone that can sing, dance, and act. Following CDC guidelines for outside activities, participants will learn techniques to strengthen their vocal, dance, and acting abilities. This 12-week workshop culminates with a student showcase on or around the middle of August; pending COVID 19 conditions. Following California’s State Board of Educations Arts Standards for public schools we’re able to meet and exceed the requirements of our state for public schools. The overarching goal is for students to attain lifelong, creative, cognitive, social, and emotional benefits from studying the arts. We look forward to calling “places” with you soon.


June 6, through August 22. Classes will be held in- person and will take place on Monday, Wednesday & Friday between 4:30 to 7:30 PM. We’re aiming for our last day of class/ our showcase(s) to be on or around August 18, 2021. However due to the fact we will be working outside and at mercy of the elements we’d like everyone to be open and flexible regarding these matters. In person classes scheduled on a rainy or wet days will be held on-line.
