Celebrating World Theatre Day
27th March 2020

Since 1962, World Theatre Day has been celebrated on the 27th of March by ITI Centres, ITI Cooperating Members, theatre professionals, theatre organisations, theatre universities and theatre lovers all over the world. This day is a celebration for those who can see the value and importance of the art form “theatre”, and acts as a wake-up-call for governments, politicians and institutions which have not yet recognised its value to the people and to the individual, and have not yet realised its potential for economic growth.
This year, all World Theatre Day activities will be conducted online, and here are a couple to look out for:
  • Tonight, 7.30pm GMT, join @SadlersWells for an exclusive screening of the BalletBoyz’s as part of new Digital Stage – a free online performance platform.
  • The National Theatre introduces #NationalTheatreAtHome. Every Thursday, the best British theatre via YouTube. Starting with James Corden in #OneManTwoGuvnors 2nd April 7pm UK time.

Harlequin would like to celebrate World Theatre Day by sharing the following video with you, a look at some of our recent stage building and refurbishment as well as our professional theatre dance floors that we design and install. Harlequin’s stage building teams work alongside architects and stage consultants to design, build and install stages which are durable, easy to maintain and flexible enough to accommodate dip traps, orchestra pit fillers and ballet wagons.

Harlequin brings over 40 years’ experience specialising in building and refurbishing stages and floors for the performing arts.  We combine traditional stage floor construction with advances in engineered flooring products and components to meet the most demanding stage specifications, and we cannot wait to continue providing this service once this crisis is over.

Stay safe!

Happy World Theatre Day!
