Magik Theatre Announces 2021-2022 Season

Magik Theatre has announced the 2021-2022 season, featuring six inspiring and courageous productions: Maddi's Fridge, Snow White, Ella Enchanted: The Musical, The Snowy Day & Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats, as well as the world premiere productions of Selena Maria Sings and Junie B. Jones: Toothless Wonder at its downtown theatre at Hemisfair. Marking the 28th season of Magik, these classic stories will come to life onstage beginning September 2021 and run through June 2022.

This will be Magik's first full season under the helm of new artistic leadership. Anthony Runfola became Magik's artistic director in the fall of 2019, right at the beginning of the 2019-20220 season. Planning for the 2020-2021 season came to a halt as the pandemic forced Magik and many other theatres to pivot away from the traditional play watching experience and explore virtual programming. Plays such as Señora Tortuga and Snow White were produced, recorded, and distributed to families and schools across San Antonio and South Texas. With restrictions lifted and vaccination rates increasing, Magik looks forward to a robust season with in-person audiences.

"This is Magik's 28th year serving the families of San Antonio and South Texas. The new season comes at a time where families are starting to venture out more, and we will continue to serve our community one performance at a time," says Magik Theatre Artistic Director Anthony Runfola. "By making Magik a place for families to experience the joy and wonder of the theatre, we hope to encourage our community to imagine a future of limitless possibilities."

Junie B. Jones: Toothless Wonder (World Premiere) is based on Junie B. Jones, a children's book series written by Barbara Park and illustrated by Denise Brunkus.

This performance centers around six-year-old Junie B. Jones and her adventures in first grade. In Toothless Wonder, one of Junie B. Jones's top front teeth are loose! Only Junie B. is not that thrilled about this development because what if she looks like toothless Uncle Lou? And even worse -- what's all this tooth fairy business? Meanwhile, that meanie Jim has invited everyone in Room Nine to his birthday party on Saturday except Junie B.! Should she have her own birthday party six months early and not invite Jim? Or should she move to "It's a Small World After All" in Disneyland?

This world premiere performance will captivate kids of all ages!
