The Arts Alive Drama Festival provides the opportunity for public schools across Metropolitan North to showcase drama works created in schools by students and staff from Kindergarten to Year 12.
Students will benefit from an excellent performance venue and be enthused through interaction with other drama students. It provides teachers with a platform to promote the arts as a vital part of the school curriculum.
Improvisation, movement, mime, storytelling, readers’ theatre, puppetry, mask and play building are eligible genres to audition with for the festival.
The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
