EMACT Annual Drama Festival
One of the highlights of the EMACT theatre season is the Annual Community Theatre Drama Festival, held in the late spring of each year. The popular long weekend event, which can maximum accommodate 18 participating member companies, entertains as well as educates. It's an opportunity to witness a wide range of theatre and learn from professionals who adjudicate each production presented.
The Festival is highlighted by an exciting tension filled closing awards ceremony, citing the productions and individuals for outstanding performance and theatre excellence. The crowd waits nervously as each award is announced and count down to the climax of the festival -- which production will receive the coveted Best of Festival trophy and cash award.
