San Diego Creative Arts Project – SDCAP
This new and unique Performing Arts Conservatory Training program has been created to train, challenge, and produce technically and artistically confident performers. With numerous Youth Theatre groups across America renting scripts, and music, for Junior versions of many shows, the need for original, and authentic youth theatre productions is very apparent. With 2-3 productions a year, one of our annual productions will be a classic favorite, and the other will be an original, or updated version of a well known tale with new script and music. At SDCAP doing the absolute best job, with the highest standards of artistic integrity, while teaching students the disciplines of musical theatre is the motivation, bringing amazing results, and dedication.
San Diego Creative Arts Project chose to launch our new youth performing arts program with an all new adaptation of “A Christmas Carol in Old San Diego” Giving youth the access to work with talented experts and professionals, on original scripts and music, is an exciting opportunity for young performers to be part of the creative process.
