If I could give this organization 6 stars I would. It's been around for 60+ years -- I'm an alumna and my two children are the next generation lucky enough to have SDJT in their lives. The well organized classes and productions teach kids teamwork, self discipline, determination, public speaking skills, creative and critical thinking, how to follow instruction, and most importantly how to use their imaginations while having fun learning! The staff and teaching artists are top-notch, many holding graduate degrees in their fields. I love the location because while they're in class I can either get some exercise in beautiful Balboa Park, tap into the Park's WiFi and get some work done, or have a glass of wine at the Prado Restaurant. I highly recommend San Diego Junior Theatre.
