It brings together students, teachers, and theatre professionals to participate in high quality workshops, view-discuss-critique student theatre performances, and learn more about the art and craft of Theatre. Participation in the Festival fosters respect, excitement, artistic development, teamwork, problem solving, and a true sense of community. > Read More
