March Madness 2021

KWLT’s ultimate theatrical competition is back, and this time it’s mad! And by “mad” we mean “online”.

In response to These Times, March Madness is reinventing itself. Teams will be given a short silent film, and they’ll have two weeks to decide what it’s about and provide an audio track: dialogue, effects, even music. They’ll audition their actors the day after they get the footage, and then it’s on!

Call for teams. If you’re interested in joining the event as a member of a production team, let us know! A minimal team has a director and a stage manager, but you can have as many members as you like; we recommend including people with skills in writing and audio tech if possible. Email a list of team members and a brief statement of what you hope to get out of March Madness this year to apply.

The March Madness event will be run entirely online, but will look pretty familiar: we’ll screen the films, the filmmaking team will chat about their process, and then the adjudicator will tell us all what they think.

Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but watch this space (and our social media feeds) for more information soon!

Battle of the Bards is back!

Make some snacks and pour a glass of whatever you’d like, because Bards is coming to a screen near you! We’re back to wish you a happy New Year and a friendly evening with distant friends.

Our show will be coming to you live from secret locations around the Waterloo Region… and beyond! We already have a lineup prepared for you, so all that’s left is for you to make yourself comfortable in front of a screen and share in the company of your fellow KWLTers. You can watch the show here or get the full interactive experience on YouTube.
