Manitoba Drama Youth Festival
What is the Manitoba Drama Youth Festival?
The Manitoba Drama Youth Festival is a festival where Manitoba students get together to share their work and participate in workshops led by Manitoba theatre professionals.
The festival currently takes place over three days and approximately 300 students from across Manitoba come to take part.
This year's festival will take place on May 27th, 28th and 29th 2020 and will be held at the University of Winnipeg.
Presently, our MDYF festival coordinator is Loc Lu.

Registration is now open. Click the HERE to register.
Workshop information will be released by April 1st.
You can choose to perform a short piece in the afternoon (maximum 30 minutes), or you can attend as a non-performing school.
- Wed. May 27th has been designated as ‘Middle School Friendly’. This doesn’t mean that middle schools are not welcome any other day of the festival. It also doesn’t mean that high schools can’t register for Wed if that's the best day for you. It simply means that if you are a middle school looking to attend festival with other middle schools, this is a great day to consider signing up for.
