Our 76th Season of Shows

76th Season Logo

A Note from Executive Director,
James Saba…

From “Impossible” to “Unstoppable” in only a matter of a few short years!

Welcome to Junior Theatre’s “Unstoppable You” Season! A collection of six carefully curated plays and musicals that will enthrall and delight every member of the family, no matter their age or interest. This season we celebrate characters who will stop at nothing to follow a dream, stand up to bullies, achieve a final goal, create a better life for their family…or just make it through recess!

Last season we bade a fond farewell to Desha Crownover, an unstoppable force at Junior Theatre for more than 25 years and with Season 76 we welcome newly appointed Artistic Director, Joey Price! No stranger to Junior Theatre, Joey is a proud alumnus returning back to San Diego from the East Coast to infuse new energy and insight into our exciting new season.

No matter if you choose to attend one, or all six of our productions, Junior Theatre is your family’s ticket to memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you, so much, for joining us for the journey!

James Saba
Executive Director
