World Theatre Day

Día Mundial del Teatro

27th March 2023

PAT Opening

World Theatre Day is an event that has been celebrated worldwide on 27th March since 1961 by centres of the International Theatre Institute.

In some countries, amateur theatre, youth theatre and children’s theatre have been part of this celebration and the message has been inclusive of all aspects of theatre making. This is your opportunity to join the celebration and celebrate the fundamental message of the International Amateur Theatre Association: Education and Understanding Through Theatre.

AITA/IATA sends best wishes for a safe and healthy passage through these challenging times to all our Members and Associates, and all those involved in all aspects of international amateur theatre, throughout the world. 

World Theatre Day Message from the AITA/IATA World President

We celebrate World Theatre Day 2023 by sharing a message from the AITA/IATA President, Aled Rhys-Jones.

We all hoped that our world would be a safer place by March 2023. Thankfully the global pandemic situation is easing and for some, life is slowly returning to normal and amateur theatre breathes once again. Sadly, the situation in Europe with a catastrophic war is hurting a society still recovering from two years of the insecurity of the pandemic.
