Curtain Call Drama Festival

Curtain Call Drama Festival is a two day festival for public schools of the Far North Coast. Held in Lismore, this festival provides students Kindergarten to Year 12 with the opportunity to take their classroom skills to a higher and more demanding level to perform in a professional theatre before a public audience. 

The festival takes place over 2 days:

  • Day 1 - Kindergarten to Year 6
  • Day 2 - Year 7 to Year 12

The festival is not only a useful showcase for public schools in the area but a valuable platform for encouraging drama in schools. The festival demands of students a higher degree of focus, commitment and performance. 

2021 dates

Curtain Call Drama Festival is currently in planning for 2021.  

It is anticipated that the festival will be held in Term 3.  

Further information and confirmed dates will be available in late Term 1.

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.
