Representatives from Drama Victoria will visit every school to observe a small part of everyone's creative development process and share these snapshots of comparitive ideas of artistic process with all students and teachers involved in the Festival.
Performance evenings will occur between 29 May - 9 June. This will include an afternoon dress rehearsal at the host venue and a showing of every group's work in the evening.
We have attempted to represent a broad geographical area but are aware there are some key regional areas that would find it difficult to participate. We would love to find some keen host schools for future years, and if you would like to be a part of the festival but feel your area is not represented please let us know! Email email@example.com with any feedback you might have.
