• American Corner Veszprém, in co-operation with Veszprém Petőfi Színház, the English and American Studies Institute, University of Pannonia, and IATEFL-Hungary is organizing the 8th National English Language Drama Festival in Veszprém.

    The 3-day program brings together 7 theater troupes (in two age groups: high school and adult) from different parts of Hungary, who applied for participation and were chosen by the organizers to perform a play in English. This unique, educational and entertaining program offers real theater experience to the performers and to the audience as well!

    Whether you are a theater-lover, someone who wants to improve their English language skills, or a teacher who would like to bring a group of students to see the plays, you are welcome as members of the audience.

    Admission is free!

    The program of the plays can be downloaded at the following link: Plays
