The National Student Drama Festival presents outstanding productions made by young theatre makers.
You can now submit a production for the 2014 Festival – click here for more information.
A professional selection team of actors, directors and producers see every production submitted, give feedback after the show and keep in contact with you if need more advice or notes.
Even if your production is not selected, you can still come to the festival and enjoy all it offers. Tickets for NSDF14 will go on sale on 9th September – click here for more information.
And it doesn’t stop there…we also invite outstanding individuals who we have seen and met during the selection process, to be a member of the Festival Company. So even if your production is not selected, you may well be invited to the Festival because you are a particularly talented actor, producer, director, stage manager, designer etc.
Such an extraordinary opportunity for young people to exchange, explore and share in the intimate setting of workshops and in the theatre whether watching or in dialogue. I was struck daily by the skills base in my groups. so vivid and immediate and always ready to present.

NSDF is a reminder that the act of making theatre is people-centred. The quality of the product is a given but an appreciation of the process is the real prize. It’s the finest kind of apprenticeship, requiring trust, generosity, creativity and heart. The festival serves to atomize this energy for all of us, theatre-goers and theatre-makers, to enjoy in years to come
