The San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts presents

The Challenge with Truth:

Our 40th season is dedicated to truth in a world of alternative truths.

Last season marked our debut effort in creating a different kind of performance and exhibition experience. We were able to spotlight what we do at our very best when we bring together guest artists, professional production values, our community partners and our talented students and alumni to produce thought-provoking, courageous, conversation-building, intellectually curious arts experiences for our SDSCPA and San Diego communities. It’s a huge challenge; one that requires the village; our SDSCPA family, our community arts partnerships, the Friends of SCPA, our wonderful guest artists, and our alumni working together to elevate the experience for our students, families and community-at-large.

In today’s world of alternative truths, the 2018/19 Mainstage Season seeks to engage our community in rich conversations surrounding the theory of truth. Our season theme will be put to the proverbial test through our production of The Crucible by Arthur Miller, our music concert It’s About Time, our spring dance concert Reflecting Forward, our visual and media arts and creative writing exhibition Changing Stories, and the Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret.

We invite you all to join us as we get set to celebrate our 40th Anniversary, and to witness our latest journey in becoming the greatest school in the universe. I guarantee you will come away feeling like we just engaged your heart.

Student Matinee Thursdays are back, thanks to ARC/21st Century ASSETs Grant.
