Forward March Festival, April 12-16
This April, Theatre Direct presents Spark the Future!, our third annual Forward March Festival, in which we ask emerging artists to show us the future, now.
Each day of the online festival will feature the premiere of a new work by emerging artists that sparks the future of performance and reminds kids that the show must go on–even if it’s online!
This year’s online festival will feature live performances from emerging artists and an Industry Series including screenings, workshops and panel discussions with industry professionals around the creation and curation of digital work and theatre for young audiences.
Join us as we gather for five days of festival fun and uncover new ways to let the show go on! Select Industry Series events are open to the public outside of our participating artists, festival delegates and Virtual Spring Break campers. We encourage you to register in advance here and secure your spot. All public programming is free to attend and ASL Interpretation (provided by Deaf Spectrum) or Closed Captions available as indicated in each event description. Please see below for the full festival schedule including events open to the public and registration.
Spark the Future! runs in partnership with our Virtual Spring Break Camp. As part of the program, campers will attend the premieres before presenting their own original show at the end of the week.
