What’s New from San Diego Junior Theatre

On behalf of the entire San Diego Junior Theatre family, our hearts are with all of those whose health has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we wish everyone health and safety during this challenging time. We look forward to re-opening and re-engaging our students and audiences in person, just as soon as health and public officials indicate it is safe to do so.

We invite your family to stay connected to our community as we create new and innovative opportunities for young people to explore and grow in a digital media setting. Virtual summer camps are currently enrolling. Register & learn more here.

We have canceled scheduled performances, through September 1, 2020, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

Wake Up Brother Bear
Matilda
Spring Break Camps
Jungle Book
West Side Story

Please email boxoffice@juniortheatre.com to exchange, donate your tickets, or receive a refund.

As a non-profit organization, San Diego Junior Theatre relies on both ticket sales and contributed revenue. The cancelation of performances and classes has been necessary for the health of our students, families and staff, and will have a significant financial effect on our organization.

Please consider donating the cost of your tickets back to Junior Theatre for a tax deduction. It will help to sustain our work during this challenging time—and help us prepare for when our doors re-open to our community.

Despite setback, the show goes on for School of Rock

We’re so proud of our resilient School of Rock cast and crew for pushing through opening weekend despite an overnight break-in at the Casa del Prado Theatre on Friday, which resulted in four stolen guitars.

“I’m proud of the cast for bouncing back and putting on a great show. I spoke with my mom and she helped me put things in perspective. We prayed that the stolen instruments get used for a good cause. I recognize that we maybe have more than others and I hope that whoever has them is able to do some good,” said Pita Birkbeck (age 15), one directly affected student.

Oliver Davis (age 12), another student who was impacted by the theft, said “Props to everyone for sticking with this. My teacher said that the show must go on; sometimes you have to be prepared for the worst. And worse things could have happened. No one got hurt. A guitar is a guitar. That can be replaced. You can’t replace a person, or their health if they get hurt. We’re okay,”

The cast and crew are in good spirits and look forward to a successful closing weekend of shows Nov 1-3.
