I am born and raised in San Diego and one of my fondest memories was participating in Junior Theatre. Whether it was in a class, on stage, or behind the scenes the experience was invaluable. I remember it felt like I was always surrounded by the best talent and the best teachers and the organization really focused on letting the kids run all aspects of a production. They gave us the tools and we were given free rein to use them. It has been 15 years since I last participated at JT but the experience will last a life time. I know that because of the opportunities given to me at JT I will be a life-long patron of the arts and will always believe strongly in the fact that the arts are priceless in a child’s total development.
