The NEDC supports theatre arts in high schools throughout New England by sponsoring the annual New England Drama Festival. The New England Drama Festival provides a showcase for two shows from each of the 6 New England states. These shows are selected through festivals by each state's high school theatre organization. The NEDF includes workshops and forums to foster the education and discussion of theatre among the attending students and directors.
