San Diego Theatre Presents “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

| June 5, 2022 | 0 Comments

San Diego Junior Theatre, the nation’s longest-running youth theatre program, presents “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales,” which will run from Friday, July 1 through Sunday, July 17 at the historic Casa del Prado Theatre, at the corner of Old Globe Way and Village Place.

Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in John Glore’s adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s quintessential children’s book of fractured fairy tales. Everything from Chicken Little to The Gingerbread Man gets a complete makeover.

Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies and enough stinky cheese to go around.

“The Stinky Cheese Man” will be directed by first-time Junior Theatre director, Hunter Brown. Hunter is a long-time teaching artist, performer and director. Previous credits include “She Kills Monsters” (Theatre Downtown, Alabama), “The Secret Garden” (Wildsong Productions) and “Weirdo” (or Make Nice) for New Village Arts’s Final Draft New Play Festival. This summer, Hunter also will be directing “You’re A Good Man, “Charlie Brown at Trinity Theatre Company and Junior Theatre’s Conservatory Acting Intensive production of Puffs, and follows that up in the fall with “Big Fish” for Coronado Playhouse.

Junior Theatre strongly encourages all eligible patrons to be fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. For the safety of unvaccinated students who perform without masks, and young, unvaccinated patrons, masks are still required for all patrons two-years old and up. Patrons are asked to check for full details and any policy updates prior to attending a performance.

For tickets and more information, visit or call the box office at 619-239-8355.
