This year’s event is themed “Celebrating Ghanaian culture and heritage through partnerships and linkages".

The upcoming Ghana Theatre festival is designed to feature the works of different artists and performing art groups in Ghana, by offering them the platform to exhibit their works and talents and to build their capabilities in Theatre Production.

The Arts Festival also offers potential theatre audiences diverse quality productions at an affordable cost, and hopefully build a dedicated audience for theatre events at the National Theatre.

Events lined up for the Ghana Theatre festival include a Theatre programme for schools (Son of Umbelle), a fashion show, a film show, Standup Comedy, dramas and an art exhibition to showcase authentic artefacts and other made-in-Ghana products.

Other events are "GHROBICS", an aerobic exercise performed amidst traditional dances fused with drumming and music for a total body workout to improve physical fitness and overall sense of well-being. GHROBICS also helps one to acquire traditional dance and movement skills.

The festival will be heralded by the performance of Efu PƆnkƆ, featuring all three resident groups of the National Theatre -National Dance Company, National Symphony Orchestra and National Drama Company- on Friday, September 29 at 7 pm.

Other participating groups in the festival are Agape Arts Production, 2 idiots production, Department of Fashion Design and Textiles (Accra Technical University), Ghana Academy of Films and Television Arts, EN Academy, Addis Dance, 2 Cute Entertainment, Robdy’s Production and Visual Arts Students Empowerment Project.The Public Relations Officer of the National Theatre, Joyce Bekoe, told Graphic Showbiz that productions for the festival have the goal of projecting positive national values.

“The annual Ghana Theatre Festival forms part of the National Theatre's efforts to fulfil its mandate to develop and promote the performing arts in Ghana,” she stated.
