In the upcoming weeks, over 2000 students from 75 high schools will be preparing for the 86th annual Maine Drama Festival.

March 10th and 11th, at nine regional competitions across the State, schools will present plays ranging from the classics to original student-written plays. Schools compete in two classes: Class A (over 525 students) and Class B (less than 525 students).

At each of the regional competitions, a panel of three judges will decide which performances advance to the State Finals (March 24th and 25th). The Class A finals will be held at Falmouth High School and Class B will be held at Yarmouth High School. The outstanding performance at each State Final will be nominated by the judges to participate in the New England Drama Festival (April 20th, 21st, and 22nd in Norwood, MA)
