National Theatre School DRAMAFEST UPDATE - April 14, 2020

Dear Festival community,


The NTS DRAMAFEST will not be holding its Atlantic Showcase in Prince Edward Island this year.


As a national festival, we are accountable for the safety and wellbeing of our communities of dedicated students, teachers, volunteers and spectators. It was collectively decided that we must do our part in minimizing the Coronavirus’ impact.

The NTS DRAMAFEST team is actively looking for creative solutions to this year’s tempest. We are taking this time to consult with the pedagogical team to see what is possible or what we can come up with as a plan to give students and teachers access to resources and to give everyone a positive outcome in the end, even if it's just a ray of theatrical light!

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and your families.

Let's look forward to happier times.
