Bard Youth Fest

A journey of creativity and discovery providing young people with an opportunity to make Shakespeare their own.

Give your students the chance to collaborate with professional Theatre Artists to create bold, original performances. Join in a non-competitive Finale that celebrates the infinite variety of ways young people play, think about, and perform Shakespeare.

As we look at the 2020/2021 school year, Bard Youth Fest will adapt to incorporate digital and in-person programming as needed.

Bard Youth Fest is made possible thanks to the ingenuity and generosity of the Pamela and David Richardson Family Foundation.

Additional thanks to the Telus Community Board for making this opportunity possible.
