The Good Will Shakespeare Festival is a multi-discipline theatre arts festival
that brings together like-minded students, and their teachers,
to create, learn, and share their passions in the theatre arts.

The festival is three days of inspiring Keynote speakers, workshops, performances, and social activities. Students choose either the Drama Rotation (variety of different workshops in drama, dance, writing, art, etc) OR one of the Intensive Workshops where they work with the same instructor for three days and present their work in the Gala Showcase at the end of the festival.

The modest registration fee ($150 per delegate) includes keynote speeches, workshops, all evening performances, three food truck lunches, snacks, social events, and a gift bag which contains a festival T-shirt, notepad and pen, as well as many other surprises.
