Foodie Fridays is a pre-show series featuring San Diego’s hottest new trend – food trucks! Theatergoers with a love for beer and delicious eats are invited to attend this one-of-a-kind event, where a ticket to select Playhouse performances also includes a complimentary microbrew tasting and access to San Diego’s hottest food trucks.

The Aug. 12 pre-show party will feature a complimentary microbrew tasting by Stone Brewing Company (for patrons 21 and over), plus food trucks Chop Soo-ey, Devilicious (making its national debut on “The Great Food Truck Race, Season 2 on Aug. 14) and Corner Cupcakes, servaing up gourmet barbeque fare, twisted comfort food and delicious cupcakes (Cost of food is not included in the ticket price). Tickets start at $40. For more information, visit

From Aug. 19–21, families who buy a ticket to the musical can get a second ticket for half-price. To participate in this offer, theatergoers can use the promo code FAM2368 when buying tickets online at or through the Box Office (858) 550-1010. Up to 4 tickets per patron. Offer is available for Area 1 only.

In Sleeping Beauty Wakes, a young woman is brought to a sleep disorder clinic, and soon all the patients find themselves sharing her dreams. The show reunites two members of the acclaimed rock trio GrooveLily – Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda – with Tony Award-winning librettist Rachel Sheinkin, who last collaborated on the inventive holiday tale Striking 12. With beguiling characters, hypnotic lyrics, and a rocking score, Sleeping Beauty Wakes delves into the magical space between dreaming and waking in this delightful adaptation of a classic tale.
