Tuesday, March 27, is World Theatre Day

John Malkovich to give International Message

Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for theatre and home of the U.S. Center of the International Theatre Institute (ITI-US), invites all theatres, individual artists, institutions and audiences to celebrate the 50th annual World Theatre Day on March 27, 2012. Created in 1961, World Theatre Day is celebrated annually by ITI Centers around the world and the international theatre community.

Each year, a renowned theatre artist of world stature is invited by ITI Worldwide in Paris to craft an international message to mark the global occasion. This year’s message was written by award-winning actor, director and producer John Malkovich.

In honor of World Theatre Day’s 50th celebration, TCG asks its membership, theatre makers and audiences to participate in ongoing World Theatre Day projects like the I AM THEATRE video project and by submitting essays for the Circle on the theme of Generations Without Borders.

TCG also encourages the dissemination of Malkovich’s message through email, Twitter and Facebook, as well as in theatre programs and pre-show speeches to help raise awareness of World Theatre Day.
