What is The Rhode Island Drama Festival?
The Rhode Island Drama Festival is an annual event where high school theatre companies across the state perform for each other and a set of adjudicators. Stellar work in Acting or Theatre Tech is awarded All-State recognition and two schools are awarded the opportunity to perform at the New England Drama Festival that year.
While there is a competitive aspect to the festival, we at RITEA believe the festival is an excellent event where students and directors can co-mingle, connect, and collaborate on ways to enhance theatre in RI schools. Students take various professional workshops and make friends at other schools throughout the 2-3 day event, while the community comes together to celebrate the best in RI High School Theatre.
