Local arts program Public schools Drama

Arts Alive Drama Festival provides the opportunity to showcase the skills and talents of NSW public school students and teachers in creating and performing drama for students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

The festival encourages and supports the development of drama programs at a school level by providing an opportunity to work towards a quality performance in a professional venue. 

Students will benefit from an excellent performance venue and be enthused through interaction with other drama students. This festival provides teachers with a valuable platform for encouraging drama in their schools and promoting the arts as a vital part of the school curriculum.


In 2022, the festival was held from Monday 25 July to Thursday 28 July 2022 (Term 3 Week 2) at The Concourse Theatre, Chatswood.

Congratulations to all schools who participated in a fantastic showcase of drama.
