Announced in early April, Theatre Nova Scotia and the DramaFest Coordinating team have made the difficult decision to cancel DramaFest 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. With the recent announcement that Nova Scotia schools will remain closed until May 1st at the earliest, and an announcement from Dalhousie University that all events hosted by Dal are being suspended until June 1st, being able to make DramaFest happen this year is an insurmountable goal.
We hope you will stay tuned and join us next year for DramaFest 2021. Until then, please stay safe and take care.
Last year the Matchstick team was thrilled to be hired on as the official coordinators of the 2019 Nova Scotia High School DramaFest. DramaFest is an intensive weekend for high school students involving all things Drama and Theatre! Open to students and teachers from across the province, Dramafest offers master-classes, performances, over 25 workshop options, and creative opportunities of all kinds for high school students led by theatre community professionals.
2019’s Fest was a rousing success, and you can see pictures below of the amazing time everyone had. Check out DramaFest’s website for more in-depth info and to see news updates for next year at www.dramafest.ca
