B.C. National Theatre School Festival
In light of the March 12, 2020 decision by B.C. Minister of Health Adrian Dix to ban all gatherings of 250 people or more, and in discussion with the National Theatre School’s Festival Organizing Committee, we are cancelling the 2020 B.C. National Theatre School Dramafest Apr. 30 - May 3, 2020.
The Ontario NTS Dramafest has also been cancelled.
This decision is made in the interest of public health and safety concerns posed by the current worldwide Coronavirus.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
