San Diego Junior Theatre kicks off 2013 with three shows running January 4 through 20: “The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (abridged),” “Go, Dog, Go!” and ‘The Stinky Cheese Man.” The productions are going to be presented in repertory – a rare occurrence among youth theaters. As the three shows run concurrently, it requires each participating student to be in the cast of one or two of the shows and a production crew member in the remaining one or two.

January 4-18, 2013, Fridays at 7 p.m.
