What’s New from San Diego Junior Theatre

A Note to Our Students and Families

Waiting in the Wings

We are waiting in the wings…

San Diego Junior Theatre is closely monitoring federal and local guidelines for our cue to return to safely return to the Casa del Prado Theatre for live performances and classes.

In the meantime, we invite your family to stay connected to our community with a plentiful lineup of virtually amazing classes and workshops offered via the Zoom platform. Please check out the many ways to engage with us from the comfort of your own home this fall.

For the health of our students, families and staff, all live performances are temporarily on hold through the remainder of 2020, and the first two productions of our 73rd Season (A Year with Frog and Toad and A Snowy Day) have been postponed until further notice.

Please keep checking back for future updates.

Thank you for your continued support of San Diego Junior Theatre during such a challenging and unpredictable time. Please consider making a donation to help to sustain our work and help us prepare for when our doors may safely 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.
