Variety Show 2013

We’re really excited to announce that the show will be held at a beautiful new venue this year – the Joan Kroc Center .  If you’ve never been, it’s absolutely beautiful…..please check out the website:

Because the theater is bigger than San Diego High’s theater we will only be having the show one night – Friday March 1st only.  However, we have close to 120 kids performing this year.  To make sure we have enough seats, we’re advising families to only count on six tickets (even if you have more than one child performing).  Please shoot an e-mail to Sandy Mattson ( and let us know how many tickets you think you will actually use or if you think you will need more.  We’ll try our best to accomodate.

We’re a little light on volunteers this year, so please consider volunteering the night of the performance.

This year’s Variety Show will be held on a Friday!
March 16, 2012

The Variety Show is an annual event allowing McKinley students of all ages the opportunity to perform on stage.  For the past 5 years we have held it at the North Park Theater.  The students create their own acts and rehearse for a solid month before inviting families and friends to spend an evening watching them shine!  From magic, cultural dances, and skits, to hip-hop dancing, singing, and joke telling…. McKinley’s Got Talent!

The 39th Annual McKinley Variety Show will be held on Friday, March 16th. Tickets are $5 adults, $3 kids: available the night of the performance starting at 5:30pm. Raffle tickets also for sale, plus snacks at intermission. All sales benefit McKinley! See you there.
