FTAMS 2019 : Le feu sacré !

Théâtre Action a le plaisir de vous convier à la conférence de presse d’annonce de la 22e édition de son Festival Théâtre Action en Milieu Scolaire (FTAMS). Le FTAMS est un événement d’envergure unique en son genre, qui convie annuellement les jeunes de la 9e à la 12e année issus d’écoles secondaires francophones de l’Ontario intéressés par le théâtre. La prochaine édition du Festival se tiendra du 25 au 27 avril 2019 à l’Université Laurentienne.

Le Festival accueillera cette année près de 400 participants, offrant une occasion de formation, de partage de connaissances et d’agréables moments de théâtre. Des souvenirs qui demeureront assurément gravés dans la mémoire des festivaliers !

Dans le but d’offrir un modèle chaleureux et inspirant aux festivaliers, Théâtre Action emploie, pour chaque édition du FTAMS, deux professionnels du théâtre franco-ontarien. Pour une deuxième année, le duo officiel de parrain et de marraine du FTAMS sera formé par Caroline Yergeau et Pierre Simpson, qui sont prêts à passer le flambeau à la prochaine génération de praticiens du théâtre.

La thématique du 22e FTAMS

À l’instar du feu sacré, les jeunes participants au FTAMS sont animés d’une énergie créatrice, grandissante et mouvante. Le FTAMS leur offre un environnement attirant et chaleureux.

Les participants sont alimentés par ce feu rassembleur dont la flamme peut être passée au suivant. Ainsi, ils portent fièrement le flambeau et ont le pouvoir de transmettre leur passion aux prochaines générations de festivaliers.”
