SDSCPA Brings Our Favorite Family to Life With The Addams Family, A New Musical Comedy

Welcome to the San Diego School of Creative & Performing Arts (SDSCPA)— an arts focused public magnet school for artistically passionate students in grades 6-12 located in Southeastern San Diego. At SDSCPA we nurture excellence in arts and academics through a rigorous dual curriculum. Our students must be extremely dedicated and willing to persevere through challenges, failures, opportunities and successes.

For 2019-2020, the San Diego School of Creative & Performing Arts presents the Mainstage Season named “Cycles”.

The Addams Family, A New Musical Comedy

The Addams Family is a musical comedy based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre.

SDSCPA is excited to present this production with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and the book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.

The Creative and Performing Arts at SDSCPA

SDSCPA dance and theater department shows

“At SDSCPA, the arts are not an “elective.” They are a core and essential area of study. Students do not just perform or create—they live through their performance or creation. It is their existential voice and way to interact with the world. SDSCPA tirelessly creates a space where students feel safe to create, explore, and discover. Students are encouraged to be courageous in telling stories through choreography, with pencil, camera or voice.”


Our vision: All students will complete a pre-collegiate curriculum in the arts and academics. All students will demonstrate they are (1) prepared for conservatory study in the arts and (2) a sophisticated, literate critical thinker ready to engage in the 21st century creative economy.

Our mission: 

Through a safe and supportive learning environment, we will fulfill our promise to students by:

* Offering a rigorous pre-collegiate scope and sequence of courses in the academics and arts;

* Ensuring all students have access to diverse industry professionals in the arts and academics;

* Providing a passionate, student-centered staff dedicated to ensuring all students experience success;

*  Providing ample opportunities for innovation, creativity, and critical thinking.
