Calgary's non-competitive speech & drama festival, and the Elizabeth Parnham Storytelling Celebration*


Welcome to the 2021 virtual edition of Presentation MRU!

Presentation MRU has been an essential component of the MRU Conservatory’s Speech and Drama program for more than three decades, offering an invaluable performance opportunity and a chance for our students to come together to share and celebrate their work and progress.

Presentation MRU offers students of all ages and levels of experience the opportunity to perform in small, non-competitive festival classes and to learn from encouraging, constructive adjudication.

Presentation MRU will be held in an online format in 2021, with students presenting live from their home performance spaces.   

Presentation MRU welcomes all speech and drama students!
