PAT Opening

27th March 2021

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.

In 2021, 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.  


Celebrate theatre in whatever way is possible in your village, your town, city and country, safely and according to local situations and guidelines. 

This year, we are not encouraging you to register your events as the global pandemic situation is too sensitive and unpredictable. Next year, in 2022, we hope that the pandemic will be under control and that we will be able to celebrate the return of live theatre and a global celebration of World Theatre Day. 

The AITA/IATA President, Béatrice Cellario, has written a message available to DOWNLOAD below, to mark the day and to look to the future…
