My daughters attended numerous classes and camps at Junior Theatre (JT). They were also members of the cast or crew for many JT shows/performances. It was wonderful to watch my daughters' self-confidence and abilities grow as they learned acting skills and took on more and more challenging roles. It is great to see how the multi-age groups work together; with older students helping younger students. And the staff and teachers are always very supportive of the students. My family has also subscribed to the JT season for many years. Performances provide a great opportunity for students to use their skills in front of an audience.

San Diego Junior Theatre has done more for my son's personal development than any other other program he has been a part of. I am not sure where he would be today if not for SDJT. And he is not alone. After 10 years of involvement with SDJT, I can honestly say that it does more to prepare kids for life as an adult, regardless of whether or not they pursue a career in theater, than any sports or other extracurricular program available in San Diego. Thank you JT for helping my son become a man.
