What is the CISDF?

The Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario Drama Festival is an exciting two-day event for students studying drama and for their teachers. Over the two-day festival, students will engage in four interactive, educational, fun and applicable workshop sessions delivered by theatre industry professionals, and have the opportunity to perform a 20-minute piece on the main stage for professional adjudication. The festival can accommodate 14 performances. With an audience comprised of festival performers/participants, the performance atmosphere is wonderfully celebratory and fosters an empowering environment where students are encouraged to explore and challenge their dramatic range.

In addition to providing your students with this outstanding learning/performance opportunity, this is a great PD opportunity for yourself as a Drama educator. Take this occasion to connect with your Drama colleagues from other CIS schools and sit in on any of the wide variety of specialty workshops being offered for the students.

How do I register my school to attend?

There are two options for attending the festival:

  1. Attend as Performers - this means that you would like to present a piece for performance and professional adjudication at the festival. Each piece must not exceed a 20-minute run time.
  2. Attend as Participants - if you and your students are not interested in presenting a piece for performance but would like to take advantage of all the great workshops and the opportunity to be an active audience member and enjoy the performances, then this is the option for you.
