High School Theatre Festival 2020 Has Been Canceled:

Due to the rapid changes in the spread of COVID-19 across our state, it has become critical to protect the students, peers, and communities by reducing the number of close interactions that occur. Given recent instructions from the Governor’s Office and the North Orange County Community College District we feel it is best to cancel for the health and safety of all.
