ISTA DRAMA FESTIVAL: UPDATE: We still require 10 placements for the ISTA Drama housing..see below for details.
ISM is excited to be hosting this year’s ISTA Middle School Theatre Festival! The International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA) facilitates two MS festivals each year in Asia, which provide an amazing opportunity for international students from around the world to engage in new theatrical experiences and to develop skills that will deepen their passion for performance. As a school, ISM has been a proud supporter and participator of ISTA, and we now have the opportunity to give the participants an experience they will never forget! We will be hosting the first ever Musical Theatre ISTA festival, and we are very excited about welcoming other international students to the Philippines and to our wonderful school. The ISM ISTA Festival will take place November 19-21 (Friday to Sunday), and will involve as many as 100 students from other countries, as well as our own ISM participants.
As with any event, the whole ISM community has the opportunity to get involved in this Middle School event. The most significant way for the ISM community to get involved is to provide housing for the visiting students. If you are able to host some students, you may contact the ATAC Office and/or the Fine Arts Office at email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org . Most guests will arrive on November 18th and will depart on either November 21st or 22nd. If you would like to help out with organization or facilitation during the ISTA Festival, you may also contact Vicki Close in the Fine Arts Office (email@example.com) for more details on how you can help. More information about ISTA can be found at http://www.ista.co.uk/ We look forward to this fantastic event, and this excellent opportunity for ISM to “show Manila proud”!
