Donate to San Diego Junior Theatre

Dear Junior Theatre Supporter,

Junior Theatre is taking a brief “intermission” from programming until further notice. The health and safety of our staff, students, patrons and supporters is our top priority. Junior Theatre is closely monitoring the national situation surrounding COVID-19 and we are looking forward to the day when we receive our cue for places from the San Diego Parks and Recreation Department.

We have every hope that soon our classrooms will be alive and thriving once again with summer campers and Shakespeare workshops; and in our theatre, students might soon be wowing families with tales of frogs and toads, snowy days, Chinese dragons, gigantic peaches, glass slippers, and a cheesy little man who stinks…all led by a girl named Matilda who is much too determined to let a setback stand in her way!

We are working remotely to keep critical operations moving forward. When our building is re-opened, we will be ready to jump back into programming with enthusiasm and a renewed sense of appreciation. “Like” our Facebook page to get updates, or take a trip down memory lane as a reminder of all the hope and happiness that Junior Theatre students have shared with audiences over the past 73 years.

The recent cancellations of programs will have a serious financial impact to Junior Theatre and our ability to serve families in the future. If you would like to support us during this unprecedented challenge, please consider making a donation.

The Show Must Go On, as they say, and your gift will help ensure a standing ovation!

Thank you for your understanding and support during this critical time. We wish your family good health and good spirits. Please do not hesitate to reach out at with any questions.

We look forward to having you back and on the edge of your seat again soon!

James Saba
Executive Director
