Our 77th Season of Shows

Dare to Leap Graphic for Junior Theatre's 77th Season

A Note from Producing Artistic Director,
Joey Price…

Dare to Leap! A season of adventure & discovery.

We’re so excited to announce San Diego Junior Theatre’s 77th season! This season, prepare to be captivated and enchanted as we explore the exhilarating possibilities that exist when we Dare to Leap.

First up, get ready to be immersed in the ooky and kooky charm of The Addams Family Musical, where the unconventional becomes the norm and eccentricities are celebrated with ghoulish delight.

Next, embark on a journey into the timeless world of Shakespeare through our devised process, where we’ll push the boundaries of tradition and creativity to take audiences on a unique journey into the bard’s beloved tales with Churlish Chiding of Winter Winds: A Shakespeariment.

For those seeking whimsy and wonder, Sideways Stories from Wayside School promises a topsy-turvy adventure that will ignite the imaginations of all ages as we wander through the corridors of one of the stranger schools you’ve ever attended.

Then, hold on tight as we soar into the fantastical realms of James and the Giant Peach, where a boy’s extraordinary adventure teaches us the power of courage, friendship and the thrilling possibilities that unfold when we dare to take that leap of faith.

In the heart of the African Savanna, Disney’s The Lion King, Jr. roars to life, reminding us of the beauty of the circle of life and the bravery it takes to embrace our destinies, no matter how daunting they may seem.

Finally, our season culminates in the glitz and glamor of The Prom, a celebration of love, acceptance and the courage it takes to stand up for what’s right, even when faced with adversity.

Please join us as we dare to leap into a season filled with magic, wonder and endless possibilities.
