Western Ontario Drama League (WODL) Festival - 2017

Celebrating 150 Years of Theatre in Canada WODL Logo

The Western Ontario Drama League (WODL) is composed of 30 theatres from the South-Western Ontario region. Every year WODL holds a Festival and many of the member theatres submit one of their plays for adjudication. Through this process the five best plays are chosen to be performed at Festival during the March break. Guelph Little Theatre is hosting the WODL Festival in March 2017. See the contenders.

The qualifying adjudication process ends in February and the 5 best shows are announced on Sunday, February 19th, 2017. Later that day the schedule for the week will be finalized below.

The best play of the week will go on to compete at the Theatre Ontario Festival in May.

Join us for the best theatre in South Western Ontario!
