Show Review: CYT San Diego’s Just So

A show review of CYT San Diego’s “Just So” was blogged by Family Adventure Guidebooks this week.

Here is a selection from the review:

“I found myself sitting in the audience of ‘Just So Stories’ a wonderful musical inspired by the work of Rudyard Kipling. I didn’t expect much, a children’s play based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling, how could that be relevant for today’s six year olds and for this 38 year old for that matter? Magically, as the musical began to unfold I found that it was. The story had a moral positive message that permeated my soul and brought me a few hours of peace amidst this ocean of craziness. The kids loved it to and were on the edge of their seats for most of the two hour performance.

Everyone involved in this performance, besides the director, was a young person between the ages of 6-18. Even the lighting crew and the stage managers were kids! The colorful sets and costumes were professional quality. The young performers danced and sang like experienced Broadway actors. The story was entertaining with plenty of witty asides for the grownups and more obvious humor for the kids. I was awed that this complex, professional quality production was carried so confidently by a large cast of young actors!

If you and your family find yourselves in Northern San Diego this weekend you should consider attending the next showing of “Just So Stories” at the Star Theater in Oceanside on Saturday at 2pm and 7pm or on Sunday at 2pm.”
