Watermark Theatre will host the National Theatre School of Canada’s Atlantic Drama Festival at their theatre in North Rustico.

The Festival, which runs from May 17-19, brings together high school students from throughout the region to view, discuss and enjoy each other’s creative efforts, under the guidance of an experienced adjudicator. Participants also take part in acting workshops with local acting teachers. The Festival facilitates and inspires a love of theatre, teamwork, problem solving, originality and entrepreneurship. 

The Atlantic Drama Festival is part of a trio of Drama Festivals, the other two are in Ontario and B.C. all now under the umbrella of the National Theatre School (NTS).

Earlier this year, NTS announced a new partnership with TD Bank Group as the national presenting partner of the National Theatre School Festival. The agreement and sponsorship, which began this year, will support thousands of high school students, in hundreds of communities across Canada, who will create and present shows in their schools, regions and provinces.
