We're Not Joshin' You

March 2017

Joshua Altamura, son of Redding Civic Auditorium’s Theatrical Director, is to appear on Episode 3 of Food Network’s Chopped Junior on Wednesday, March 22 at 5 pm PST.

Joshy has performed as Thomas of Warwick in the four time Tony award winning show Camelot and more recently as Tiny Tim in Christmas Carol, A Love Story both at the Redding Civic Auditorium. 

Joshy has had a passion for cooking since the age of 8 and currently works at Tantardini’s European Bakery and Deli. He attends Bethel Christian School, loves hanging out with his friends and playing soccer.

Joshy’s Food Network bio:

Originally from England, Joshy, 12, moved to Northern California when he was 8 years old. He learned to cook Italian food from his Italian family, and he's even mastered cookies, biscuits and cakes. Despite being a bit of a control freak in the kitchen, Joshy likes to cook with his friends. He dreams of becoming both a chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant and a soccer player, even though that sounds like a crazy combination.
