SPEECH & DRAMA FESTIVAL
This festival is traditionally held in the winter month with seniors performing at the Prince Edward Beit Hall and Music Centre while choral verse is at Twin Rivers School or the Harare International School.
In 2019 over 1,700 candidates entered and captivated audiences with poetry, prose, dramatic excerpts, mime, fantastic Shakespeare on the Reps Stage, and choral verse. Performances were adjudicated by an energetic and highly qualified duo from California – Sherry Diamond and Victoria Bryan. Due to the pandemic that affected us in 2020 the festival went virtual and over 300 candidates had their performances posted on social media. It was agreed not to adjudicate but to let viewers select the best. We will be going ahead with plans for a virtual festival this year but will adjudicate and issue certificates!
