Virtual Festival 2020

We are pleased to announce that the organization has been preparing to launch our first-ever METG HS/MS Virtual Festival. Details will be forthcoming from Division leadership in the next few days and will be posted here. We know nothing can ever replace the spirit of our in-person festival, but we hope that providing a virtual platform to students and schools will nourish our artistic souls for the next few months.

General Information on the METG Middle School Festival

The first Middle School Drama Festival was held in 1995 at the Belmonte Middle School in Saugus. John Gould, drama coach at Belmonte, had wanted to institute a drama festival so students from across the state could share their productions. The festival grew until 1998, when the Massachusetts Middle School Drama Festival and the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild merged and created a Middle School division to the MHSDG.

Participation in the annual one day drama festival provides your students with the unique opportunity to share their work with other member schools. Professional adjudicators evaluate your students’ work and present awards for both acting and technical excellence in your production.

$12 Entry Fee gets audience members admission to sites both days of the festival.
