Nearly 100 students teachers from 30 schools, including universities, middle primary schools kindergartens, will perform onstage at CNTC.
The 33 dramas they will bring to the audience reflect teachers' students' understanding of drama education. Their performance will also provide inspiration for drama educators.
During the festival, CNTC will also hold various drama workshops lectures.
Through these activities, it is hoped China's drama education will continue to develop in an orderly way enable more children to understenjoy drama.
