CISDF: Drama Festival
Hosted by none other than the world-renowned Stratford Festival each April, this multi-day theatrical experience makes a lasting impact on aspiring actors, producers and technicians.
The offerings include seats for a current production. (Spamalot or Chicago may just be on the bill.) Stratford Festival teaching artists deliver on-site workshops and each evening students participate in and watch pieces they’ve been rehearsing back at school.
Working with Stratford's performing artists sets a high bar and raises the calibre of conversation about theatre, whether they’re offering supportive feedback or educating students about how to adjudicate a show.
It’s also an exciting way to expose young artists to social opportunities with passionate and dedicated peers from member schools. (Senior students stay for the full three-day option while Middle School students come for one day.)
Details regarding this year's festival are currently under review. Decisions will be made as to whether the event will offer a modified program, transition to online or be held in person, if it is safe and permitted to do so. News about CISDF 2021 will be published on this page, our News feed and our social channels.
