In 2019, Breakthrough Workshop Theatre is celebrating our 7th Season.



June 29, 2019 at the La Jolla Library

On the weekend of June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Riot erupted in New York City.  Presented exactly 50 years after the fight for LGBT equality was forever changed, Stonewall: A BWT 24-Hour Play Experience will inspire two teams of Breakthrough Artists to conceive, write, direct, rehearse and perform two short plays about Stonewall within a strict 24-hour time period.  This unique theatrical event will provide an unforgettable opportunity for the artists and audience alike to reflect and celebrate the legacy of a quintessential breakthrough moment of history.


Special Event Breakthrough Experience

July 28, 2019 at the La Jolla Library

Based on Kate DiCamillo’s beautiful novel of the same name, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a theatrical tour de force.  Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of china. He is loved unconditionally by a little girl, but Edward doesn’t care because he is vain and self-centered. When he is accidentally lost during travel, Edward embarks on an extraordinary journey lasting decades, learning along the way what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again.
