Each year CETA holds its Southern High School Theatre Festival during
the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. The
weekend offers a variety of opportunities for artistic growth for high
school students and their teachers. The three-day Festival showcases
four Main Stage plays selected from four regions of Southern California:
Los Angeles, Orange County, the Inland Empire, and San Diego County.
Additionally, eight schools are selected to perform 10-minute scenes
from their productions for the Festival’s SceneFest. The CETA Southern High School Theatre Festival is open to all high schools across the state of California.

The Drama Club will be participating in CETA's theatre festival in Fullerton, California this January. This event is packed with classes, workshops, and excellent high school theater. It is an opportunity for students to see the work of their peers and possibly the honor of performing a scene from our own show.
Cost: $140 per student (includes festival registration fees, bus transportation, hotel and breakfast). Students need to bring money for lunch and dinner.
Forms and payments are due no later than Wednesday December 10, 2014. Checks payable to MCHS Drama. Forms available in the Drama Classroom G40.
Field trips to live
theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance, and empathy among
students, according to a study. The research team found that reading and
watching movies of Hamlet and A Christmas Carol could not account for
the increase in knowledge experienced by students who attended live
performances of the plays. Students who attended live performances of
the play also scored higher on the study's tolerance measure than the
control group by a moderately large margin and were better able to
recognize and appreciate what other people think and feel.
