Congratulations to the Winners!
The cream of the Drama Festival crop
Remi Long We are happy to announce the winners from this year's festival and to highlight the Donald Sutherland Award for Best Performance. While a student at U of T, Dr. Sutherland was an avid participant in the festival and was the recipient of an award for best performance in 1954. To recognize Dr. Sutherland's philanthropic support of the festival, we are proud to have the Donald Sutherland Award for Best Performance, which is presented to the 'actor who achieves the highest quality of delivery, character development and interaction'. This year's winner is Remi Long from the Hart House Players' production of Let My Mind Run Dry.

Daffydil 2015 - A Song of 'Scripts and Scrubs
The doctors take the stage...
Daffydil was started in the late 1890s by medical students at the University of Toronto. This century-old tradition has now become an annual charity show that has contributed over $600,000 to charity and has been recognized with the Canadian Cancer Society's Community Partner Award.

What Daffydil is especially known for, however, is entertaining over 1500 guests each year with a fantastic and comical musical performance!

The production has evolved from a small variety show into a full-fledged musical that includes acting, singing, music and dancing.
