Each summer the Tony Award-winning La Jolla Playhouse offers a variation of one- to five-week acting and production experiences for grade school students. The curriculum is designed to prepare emerging theatre artists with a multitude of performing arts experiences wither they are auditioning for BFA college programs or are just yet discussing their love for performing. From our conservatory where eight hours a day, five days a week, students study acting, scene study, voice and speech, ensemble-devised performance, movement and yoga alongside some of the most exciting theatre professionals in the field to our workshops for younger students where expert teaching artists inspire and provide a fun-filled, nurturing place for young performers to reach for the stars. Or for our behind the scenes creators of tomorrow, our Tech Theatre class teaches on costumes, lighting, props, scenic design and painting sets.
Beauty and the Beast, A Christmas Rose is an updated version of the classic tale in the style of a traditional British family pantomime. The show features family-friendly magic with a comedic twist, dancing (with So You Think You Can Dance alums), contemporary music, and more.
Fancy Nancy and her friends Bree, Rhonda, Wanda, and Lionel are going to be performing in their very first show, "Deep Sea Dances." Nancy is positive (that's fancy for 100 percent sure) that she and Bree will be picked to be mermaids. When another girl wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one she wanted?
Audiences help Cinderella, Snow White, Little Bo Peep, and even Mother Goose confront the magic and mystery of modern living as they try to find Belle, save the fairy-tale world, and prove that you're never too old to believe in imagination and happily-ever-afters. Finding Belle is a family musical for anyone between the ages of 2 and 102. It has a whole new perspective on fantasy and reality, sharing and caring, and the importance of family togetherness.
Theatergoers with a love for beer and delicious eats are invited to attend Foodie Fridays, where a ticket to select Playhouse performances also includes access to some of San Diego's finest food trucks, plus a complimentary microbrew tasting!!!!

PigPen Theatre Co.'s The Old Man and The Old Moon combines their signature shadow puppetry, indie-folk music, exuberant energy, and array of ever-changing characters. The Old Man tends to The Old Moon, refilling the light that spills out every night. When his wife unexpectedly leaves home, he journeys across land, air, and sea to remind her—and us—of the unwavering power of love. New York magazine said PigPen shows us "how unapologetically and unpretentiously playful theater can be."
Fun (and appropriate) for everyone from 2 to 200 years old, The Really Awesome Improv Show features improv games that rely on audience suggestions and participation. Because there's a rotating cast, audiences see different performers and games each week.
