The three resident groups at the National Theatre of Ghana including the National Drama Company (ABIBIGROMA), the National Dance Company and the National Symphony Orchestra will on the 30th March 2012 perform at the National Theatre to mark the International Theatre Day.
Instituted in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the day is celebrated annually across the world on March 27 and is used to reflect on the role theatre plays in our lives and the society at large.
