This performance will set the tone for the festival
and we can boldly say that from that first performance there will be no
boring moments during this year’s festival.
This special edition of Ghana Theatre Festival is part of the 25th anniversary
celebrations. It will provide insights of what the Theatre has planned for
our various audiences (Children, Youth, Adults and the Aged) in the future.
We hope the general public will seize this opportunity to be part of this
wonderful Cultural and Artistic experience.
