Drama Club wins 4 awards at NTS Festival – Moves to the Provincial Level

Southwood Secondary School’s Drama Club wins 4 awards at the National Theatre School (NTS) Western Regional Showcase (formerly SEARS) on Saturday, April 13. The production “Sometimes I Look Up to the Sky” received overwhelming feedback from the NTS Adjudicator and audience. In addition, the club will represent the Waterloo Region District School Board at the NTS Provincial Showcase.

Why this is a BIG deal

The students should be extremely proud to be performing among the top shows in the Province.
