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 22, 23 and 24, 2019.
It will be held at Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) this year.
Presently, our MDYF festival coordinator is Loc Lu.

At Canadian Mennonite University (CMU)
500 Shaftesbury Blvd, Winnipeg
You can choose to perform a short piece in the afternoon (maximum 30 minutes), or you can attend as a non-performing school.
New This Year:
- Due to scheduling conflicts, MDYF will not be run out of PTE. We are running out of the theatre at Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) for this year. We are working to bring MDYF back to a theatre space in 2020.
- Wed. May 22nd 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 consider signing up for.
