The Vermont Drama Festival consists of several regional festivals and a state festival. Open to Vermont secondary schools, the festival is co-sponsored by the VPA and by the Vermont Drama Council (VDC).
The festival’s goal is to stimulate and support high school drama programs in Vermont. This is done through presenting, watching and discussing one-act plays, participating in workshops, attending dinners, and being willing to “Celebrate Theatre” by promoting the spirit of festival.
