| August 9, 2022 | 0 Comments

The San Diego Premiere of Junior Theatre’s “Head Over Heels,” runs through Sunday, August 14 at the Casa del Prado Theatre, located at the corner of Old Globe Way and Village Place in Balboa Park.

An inspired mash-up of posh and punk, “Head Over Heels is an unpredictable Elizabethan romp about a royal family that must prevent an oracle’s prophecy of doom. In order to save their beloved kingdom, the family embarks on an extravagant journey where they are faced with mistaken identities, love triangles and self-discovery. This fearlessly fresh new musical comedy from music legends The Go-Go’s includes the hit songs “We Got The Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation” and many more.

The“Head Over Heels”creative team features a trio of top San Diego talent: Blake McCarty is directing along with Ian Brandon as music director and Ricardo Valenzuela as choreographer.

“Head Over Heels” is recommended for ages 10-plus due to mature content and themes.

Thanks to a generous contribution from The Conrad Prebys Foundation, Junior Theatre continues to provide an ASL-interpreted performance for each production. For “Head Over Heels” the ASL-interpreted performance will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, August 13. For optimal seating, members of the Deaf community can reach out directly to the box office at
