Covina High Theatre Arts
Welcome to Theatre Arts! We are an award winning Theatre Program in Southern California. Daily courses are offered during the school day in Introduction to Theatre, Play Production, and Advanced Acting.
We are proud of all of our hard work in the 2017-18 school year and we were recognized for our superior quality theatre productions. We were nominated for 11 National youth Arts awards and won 4 awards! We were also nominated for 7 Jerry Herman Awards through the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, and I am proud to report we won 2 awards- One for Best Supporting Actress, and Best Student Orchestra! The Jerry Herman Competition is extremely competitive, with over 30 Los Angeles County High Schools competing, many of them private or Arts Magnet high schools. We were so proud to be nominated and absolutely astonished to win!
Several of our students have been accepted to and attended the California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA) at Cal Arts in Valencia and have been able to work with professional working artists in theatre, music and movement in the last 4 years.
In the 2016-2017 school year, Our Large Group Comedy Entry into the DTASC fall competition won first place over more than 60 other Southern California high schools.
Our Productions of "The Addams Family: A Musical Comedy" and "Almost, Maine" were nominated for and won several National Youth Theatre Awards.
