3/27 Is World Theatre Day
World Theatre Day – A Message from Lynn Nottage from Theatre Communications Group on Vimeo.
The International Theatre Institute (ITI) started World Theatre Day back in 1961, as a way to “promote international exchange of knowledge and practice in theatre arts (drama, dance, music theatre) in order to consolidate peace and solidarity between peoples, to deepen mutual understanding and increase creative co-operation between all people in the theatre arts.”
Since then, it’s been an annual call to arms: “Get thee to a thea-tah!” In the clip above, we hear a passionate plea for the arts by Lynn Nottage, the Pulitzer-winning playwright of Ruined (running at Intiman Theatre July 2 through August 8). And in honor of WTD, Intiman is having a one-day sale Saturday of Ruined tickets. Buy $25 adult-price tickets for the first two weeks of shows (excluding opening night July 9). Promotion code: CONGO. Call 206-269-1900 or go to Intiman.org for information.
