Since 1961, the world has celebrated the magic of theatre on March 27th known as World Theatre Day. Created by the International Theatre Institute ITI, this day aims to bring awareness to theatre and international theatre events. Over 90 ITI centres celebrate this day, along with theatre companies, theatre professionals, theatre schools, theatre lovers, theatre teachers and more, including us theatre folk here at TicketPeak!
The goals of World Theatre Day are simple: to promote theatre in its many forms across the globe, to bring awareness to the value of the theatre, to help theatre communities promote their work on broader and worldwide scale, to simply enjoy the theatre in all its forms, and finally to share the joy of theatre with as many people as possible. These last two goals really resonate with us here at TicketPeak.
