San Diego Junior Theatre’s Rippledink’s Repertory returns for the fourth year in a row with Magic Treehouse: Dinosaurs Before Dark and Fancy Nancy: The Musical  

Local youths from throughout San Diego County are performing two productions of Magic Treehouse: Dinosaurs Before Dark and Fancy Nancy: The Musical presented by San Diego Junior Theatre.  

When siblings Jack and Annie accidentally stumble upon a tree house time machine, they find themselves transported back to the time of the dinosaurs. Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning children’s book comes to life in Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs Before Dark KIDS directed by San Diego Junior Theatre alumnus, Eric vonMetzke.  

Can Fancy Nancy bring fancy flair to her role as a tree in her very first show?  Find out in Fancy Nancy: The Musical, based on the bestselling Fancy Nancy children’s books by Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser. Fancy Nancy: The Musical is directed by Barb Schoenhofer.  

Rippledink’s Repertory runs January 2nd through January 18th at Balboa Park’s Casa del Prado Theatre on Fridays at 7 p.m. and weekends at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tickets range from $11 to $15 and are available online at or by calling (619) 239-8355.  

Founded in 1948, San Diego Junior Theatre is the oldest youth theater in the United States. Positively affecting students of all abilities, ages 4 through 18, it thrives through show ticket sales, class and camp enrollments and the generosity of its alumni and community members. Contributions to San Diego Junior Theatre are tax-deductible.
