EYT FEST AND FEATS
English Youth Theatre Festival
Every year, we hold a festival celebrating youth theatre across all of our groups! This year, our first edition featured 7 plays, one performed by each of our Senior groups, and four prizes were awarded: Best Group Performance, Best Lead Performance, Best Supporting Performance and the Adjudicator's Award.
The 2023 edition will take place in February at De Nieuwe Vrede in Antwerp. All seven Senior groups will take part, each performing a one-act play. Exact dates and details on the performances will follow shortly!
Every few years since 2004, EYT has been invited to participate in the Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS). This is an adult competition: our group is the only youth theatre group to be invited. EYT has won several awards at FEATS. Participation in FEATS is a special privilege extended to those willing to work hard and meet the standards expected by the competition, so students must audition for a role in the show.
For the 2022 edition, EYT is taking the play Boom by Vincent Eaton, and the play Chaos by Laura Lomas will be performed on the FEATS Fringe by the winning group of EYT Festival, the Ixelles Senior Group.
