Pre-Professional Productions at SDMT

We will produce two musicals for pre-professional young actors and students at our new residence in the Horton Grand Theatre. Young performers will work with a variety of Directors, Choreographers, Musicians, and Technical Crew who regularly work on our Main Stage productions to explore everything it takes to bring Broadway to San Diego.

MUSIC BY: Lin Manuel-Miranda and Tom Kitt

BOOK BY: Jeff Whitty

Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic – she’s been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition – the National Championships.
