The whole family can kick off our season in La Jolla with Charlottes’s Web. Charlotte the spider, Wilbur the pig, and a gaggle of other farm residents join young Fern Arable to discover the true meaning of friendship
Following at our new site in Chula Vista is The Stinky Cheese Man. When familiar fairy tales get mixed up in the telling, there’s bound to be silly surprises. Find out what could have happened with a different ending!
The tale of Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, the animated Genie and the evil Jafar opens up “A Whole New World” of magical adventure on our mainstage in Balboa Park
Celebrate the holidays at our satellite locations with deep-thinking Charlie Brown as he contemplates the meaning of the Christmas season, with a lot of help from his friends, in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Or you can celebrate with our friend Madeline and her 11 friends in A Madeline Christmas. In this tale, Madeline finds herself caring for friends who cannot go home for the holidays…and it is still a Merry Christmas for all.
Junior Theatre kicks off the start of 2007 with a production of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The mystical land of Narnia, threatened by a witch, becomes a battleground for good against evil when four adventurous kids join forces with Aslan, the lion.
Up next is Sideways Stories from the Wayside School. There is no such thing as a boring school day for the zany class on the thirteenth floor.
Junior Theatre’s older students will tackle Harper Lee's 1961 Pulitzer-prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, which tells the tale of a journey through an unsettled time of prejudice in 1932 Alabama, told through the eyes of Scout, a tomboy with very grown up ideals.
In the Spring, travel to Neverland with Peter, his Lost Boys, and the Darling children for an unforgettable journey that will convince you to never grow up in the family classic, Peter Pan.
The summer season starts off with Edward Bear – better known as Winnie-the-Pooh – and his beloved companions. With lyrics like “Isn’t it funny how a bear likes honey?” this classic musical creates a wonderful and inviting A.A. Milne world.
Concluding the season will be a fantastic rendition of Grease. Grease is STILL the word as the Rydell High gang makes the scene with all the memorable music, cool dance moves and rollicking fun!
