WGC Youth Drama Festival presents
The very best of youth drama from Hertfordshire and the Home Counties
A wonderful week of entertaining, dramatic competition that attracts around 250 young people from Hertfordshire and its adjoining counties. They compete for various awards for junior and senior sections. There are two or three short (one-act) plays each night. The teams must adhere to the festival rules and will be awarded marks by a professional adjudicator, Bev Clark GODA, for acting, production, stage presentation and dramatic achievement.
Entries to the Youth Drama Festival are welcome from schools, drama clubs, in fact any group participating in youth drama.
