Come with me and you’ll see a world of pure imagination at San Diego Junior Theatre. 

San Diego – San Diego Junior Theatre kicks off their 63rd season in Balboa Park with Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka. The search for a Golden Ticket is on! In this fun-filled, world-premiere stage musical based on Roald Dahl's beloved children's novel, a sweet-natured boy named Charlie and four other winners get the tour of a lifetime in a mysterious candy-maker's fantastical factory.

Alumnus Matthew Novotny is the lighting designer and the show features an ensemble cast of 54 students from throughout San Diego.
