Centre Stage Drama Festival

Centre Stage Drama Festival is a secondary schools drama showcase open to public school students from Year 7 to Year 12. 

At the local schools level, the festival provides a clear focus for teachers to deliver specific classroom programs that lead toward demonstration of exemplary skills. 

Centre Stage Drama Festival is founded on equity principles with a focus on participation instead of competition. 


Centre Stage Drama Festival is currently in planning for 2021.  

It is anticipated that the event will be held in Term 4.  

Further information and confirmed dates will be available in late Term 3. 

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.
