Stephenville Theatre Festival
The seeds for Stephenville Theatre Festival were sewn in the mid-1970'sduring a provincial drama festival in Stephenville. Adjudicator Maxim Mazumdar was very impressed with the caliber of performers who had gathered from across the province. A dedicated group of volunteers lured Maxim to return to Stephenville, which he did, establishing the Provincial Drama Academy in 1978/79. The Academy was a place to learn about theatre, work with established theatre professionals and practice the craft.
