The World Day of Theatre for Children and young people is an ASSITEJ campaign, promoted and celebrated through the message ‘Take a Child to the Theatre Today’.

World Day campaign enables National Centres, individual members, companies, arts organisations, academics, teachers, artists, practitioners and others interested in theatre for young audiences to connect with the idea of World Day and ‘make the case’ for children’s entitlement to theatre and the arts. Individuals from across the world are invited to promote the World Day messages and consider additional activity – large or small. Each year ASSITEJ Centres around the globe deliver activities ranging from conferences, performances, workshops and special media events, connected to #takeachildtothetheatre.

  • featuring rehearsed readings of new works from 6 U.S. companies and 9 international playwrights, as well as inspiring conversations, formal and informal, that celebrate the past, present, and future of Theater for Young Audiences and explore our roles in navigating our fast-changing, interconnected world.
