Drama Festival, Hosted by Bromsgrove International School Bangkok, 2nd-5th March 2017.

This year saw Bromsgrove International School, Thailand host the biggest FOBISIA Drama Festival to date with 14 schools attending and 197 students. The theme 'Sam, same but different' reflected the host country but also saw students work in the styles of 5 key Theatre Practitioners to perform some highly engaging and sophisticated work on the Sunday.
