About our Community Outreach Programs

Junior Theatre’s outreach programs can be customized to meet the needs and interests of your students as well as the learning goals of your classroom. Programs may be incorporated into the school day or offered after school.

San Diego Junior Theatre’s Education Outreach program travels to schools and community sites offering theatre enrichments. We offer programs to all grade levels (K through 12) for students ages 5-18. Our education programs are customized for individual schools, depending on the goals of the teachers, administrators and/or PTA/PTO organization requesting the program. Sessions utilize project-based learning by building toward a final presentation of short scenes or excerpts that may be performed for school students and staff as well as an invited audience of families and friends.

For more information regarding in-school outreach programming, please review and submit our Outreach Interest Form. Title I schools may be eligible to receive outreach programming at a discounted rate.


Junior Theatre sends qualified theatre Teaching Artists into school sites throughout greater San Diego. School day programs are 60 to 90 minutes long, and run for 10-week sessions. Students will build basic performance skills through theatre exercises, games and script work. Program goals can be modified to meet the needs of your particular student group, and may also utilize standards-based literature and/or arts integration as requested.


Students in after-school outreach programs will develop theatre skills (voice, body, imagination, focus, listening) and life skills (empathy, communication, confidence, inclusion, problem solving). Students will build basic performance skills and share their talents with friends and family on the final day of class. Program goals can be modified to meet the needs of your particular student group.


Plan a field trip by purchasing group tickets for special matinee performances of our mainstage productions. Receive a show-specific Study Guide to review with your students. For a deeper dive, you may book a Student Matinee workshop that takes place before or after the show. Students will get to participate in games and activities related to show themes.
