World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People
March 20 is celebrated world wide as a World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People by the international community of theatre practitioners for childen and young people. On that occasion, in all theaters, messages written by distinguished artists from the field are read before the performances and special events are organized. Read the World Day message for 2013 written by Michael Morpurgo, and message from Yvette Hardie, ASSITEJ President, and download them here and our promotional movie here. Our campaign slogan since 2012 is 'Take A Child to the Theatre Today'. We think this message is clear and simple. We encourage you to use it widely and inventively. It's a call to parents, grandparents and guardians to take the chiildren in their care to the theatre on March 20th (and of course on every day of the year). We wish you all HAPPY THEATER FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WORLD DAY!!
