The San Juan Community Youth Theatre program’s mission is to nurture the intellectual, artistic and personal development of children and youth through multi-arts education, performing opportunities, and extraordinary theatre experiences.

*SUMMER MUSICAL THEATRE CAMP
A three-week day camp for ages 7 to 16, culminating in public musical theatre performances in the Whittier.
*SJCT FAMILY THEATRE
Under the direction of Penelope Haskew, dozens of volunteers and a cast of children and adults/parents present a major staged production in the Whittier.
SJCT works with local schools on productions presented annually in the Whittier and Gubelman Theatres.
