| September 6, 2021 | 0 Comments

San Diego Junior Theatre, the nation’s longest-running youth theatre program, is pleased to present “The Impossibly Possible Season.” All of the upcoming shows will celebrate how hope makes all things possible.

Executive Director James Saba, Artistic Director Desha Crownover and the entire production team are very excited to welcome back Junior Theatre students for live performances after the prolonged shut down. “We have put a lot of thought into the safety and well-being of our performers and will be ensuring that everyone follows COVID guidelines that include masking by cast and crew, frequent sanitation and testing“ says Saba. “We are revising our ticketing process, as well, to seat families in socially distanced pods, with face coverings required of all audience members. Junior Theatre is a family and family takes care of one another.”

“A Year with Frog and Toad” runs from Friday, October 29 to Sunday, November 14.  Book and lyrics by Willie Reale, music by Robert Reale, and based on the Books by Arnold Lobel.

Two unlikely friends, the cheerful Frog, and curmudgeonly Toad take a musical journey through four colorful seasons along with their friends Snail, Turtle, and the Birds, as they enact many adventures, from rushing down a hill in a runaway sled in the winter to taking a picnic and a quiet moment in the summer. Frog and Toad discover that the differences that make them unique are also what makes their friendship so special.

All Junior Theatre productions are performed in Balboa Park’s historic Casa del Prado Theatre, at the corner of Old Globe Way and Village Place. Tickets are $16 to $18. Discounts are available for children, seniors and military. For tickets and more information, visit, or call the box office at (619) 239-8355.

Founded in 1948, San Diego Junior Theatre is the oldest continuing children’s theatre program in the country. Our mission is to provide engaging, innovative, high-quality theatre education and productions for children of all cultural heritage, ages, abilities, and levels of interest.
