NEW NorCal Festival Event on January 20, 2018
— more info to come!

Historically, the NorCal Festival is an exciting educational event for high school theatre students who are interested in learning more about onstage performance work or about the many technical design aspects of theatre. Students attend workshops on acting, playwriting, and TV/Film or Technical Theatre. Seniors auditioning with monologues for a Senior Scholarship attend one workshop and a preliminary competition round before finalists are selected for the final round after lunch. The day wraps up with a general session where awards are given and winning monologues are performed. Awards recipients qualify to perform at CA Youth in Theatre day in Sacramento in March each year!
