To showcase students and amateur performers in the performing arts in a positive, caring, and instructional environment.
To encourage participation in the performing arts.
To foster an appreciation in the public and realization of why performing arts is essential to individuals and society as a whole.
Peace River South Festival of the Arts is used as:
A performance showcase.
A vehicle for specialized instruction in the performing arts.
A cultural experience to foster community engagement.
An opportunity to encourage the continuation of performing arts education through merit based scholarship awards.
The instructional aspect for performances takes the form of adjudicators written and video comments to performers.
The cultural aspect of the festival is achieved through participants and public having the ability to watch our participants perform as well as through our PRSFA Honours Concert; which will showcase the best performers from this years submissions. These performances will be scheduled and filmed over a 1 week period for the safety of all our competitors and to follow all provincial covid-19 guidelines. Entry to the live shows will be limited to 50% capacity and patrons will be required to provide proof of vaccination. The honours concert will also be streamed through our website following the concert for any participants and public who were unable to attend.
