Student actors from a dozen different Surrey secondary schools will take centre stage at an upcoming festival at the Bell Performing Arts Centre.
The Act 1 Festival is Jan. 23, 4:30-9:30 p.m. and will feature performances in an array of categories, including monologues, group scene, solo/duet musical, group musical, short play, open performance and student written piece.
Participating schools include Clayton Heights, Enver Creek, Fleetwood Park, Frank Hurt, Johnston Heights, Kwantlen Park, L.A. Matheson, Lord Tweedsmuir, North Surrey, Salish, Semiahmoo and Sullivan Heights.
Spectators are welcome and admission is free.
The Jan. 23 event serves as a bit of a warm-up for schools participating in the Surrey One Act Play Festival at Salish Secondary on Feb. 22. It spotlights nine one-act plays from six Surrey secondary schools – one of which will be selected to perform at the B.C. National Theatre School Festival at Douglas College in May.
Both Surrey events provide a friendly venue for local students to showcase their work, meet like-minded peers, share ideas and grow creatively.
