The Casa del Prado stage to be transformed into the Great Green Room for the premiere of Goodnight Moon.

San Diego Junior Theatre is proud to present everyone’s favorite bedtime story, Goodnight Moon. With appeal for children of all ages, this lively show promises an entertaining experience for the whole family – and, as part of SDJT’s continued commitment to inclusion, July 16th performances of Goodnight Moon offer an ASL-interpreted show as well as a sensory-friendly performance for families with children on the autism spectrum. Friday night performances on July 8th and 15th will be Pajama Nights for children and adults alike.

Goodnight Moon, the classic story by Margaret Wise Brown, has been loved and passed down through the generations for more than 60 years. The bunny in the blue and white striped PJs wants to delay going to bed for as long as possible, so he says goodnight to every object in his room – and beyond. In this new musical adaptation by Chad Henry, the objects and characters jump off the pages, and the bunny’s bedroom comes to life. Suddenly, the cat and the fiddle, red balloon, clocks and socks, kittens and mittens, and the cow jumping over the moon are just a few of the many that spring into action.

Directed by SDJT alumnus and Executive Director, James Saba, Goodnight Moon opens July 1st at Balboa Park’s Casa del Prado Theatre with shows on Fridays at 7p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $11 to $15 and are available online at juniortheatre.com or by calling (619) 239-8355. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.

Founded in 1948, San Diego Junior Theatre is the oldest, continuously producing youth theater in the United States. Engaging students of all abilities, ages 3 through 18, SDJT thrives through ticket sales, class and camp enrollments and the generosity of its alumni and community members. Contributions to San Diego Junior Theatre are tax-deductible.
