The Drama Teachers Association of Southern California (DTASC) hosts well-regarded theatre competitions in the fall and spring. Over fifty regional high schools are invited to compete in these prestigious competitions and Samohi Theatre students routinely receive high honors. We’ve taken first place in several categories over the years!
Students interested in participating in DTASC competitions should contact Kate at and watch for notices about DTASC auditions. Samohi typically enters at between 20-40 students for each competition. Students must commit to attending additional practices after school and will work with a professional acting coach in addition to working with Ms. Barraza.
