World Theatre Day was initiated in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI). It is celebrated annually on the 27th March by ITI Centres and the international theatre community. Various national and international theatre events are organized to mark this occasion. One of the most important of these is the circulation of the World Theatre Day International Message through which at the invitation of ITI, a figure of world stature shares his or her reflections on the theme of Theatre and a Culture of Peace. The first World Theatre Day International Message was written by Jean Cocteau (France) in 1962. It was first in Helsinki, and then in Vienna at the 9th World Congress of the ITI in June 1961 that President Arvi Kivimaa proposed on behalf of the Finnish Centre of the International Theatre Institute that a World Theatre Day be instituted. The proposal, backed by the Scandinavian centres, was carried with acclamation
Why buy a Season Ticket? The better question is ‘Why Not?’! FSLT Season Tickets offer great value with plenty of perks for both types of Season Ticket packages.
Regular Season Tickets:
>Advanced Reservations– We value our Season Ticket patrons so much that we give them 5 days to make their reservation before we accept general admission and cast member reservation requests. Do you like to be seated low or perhaps on the top row? Advanced reservations for season ticket holders means it is far more likely that you can be assigned your preferred seat on your preferred performance date.
>Flexibility– Before each production, check your calendar, decide which date works better for you, then reserve a seat that fits your schedule. Perfect for busy people. There are 7 shows – evening and matinee – to choose from. No other entertainment venue can offer you that kind of flexibility.
Opening Night Season Tickets:
>Guaranteed Same Seating- Opening Night Season Ticket patrons are assigned the same seats for all Opening Night shows all through year. If you have a favorite church pew or restaurant table, this is a great perk for you. Plus you’ll enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, champagne and wine before curtain time and dessert at intermission.
>Flexibility– If you can’t attend a particular Opening Night, just let us know and we’ll reserve you a the best seat available for another performance.
ALL Season Tickets:
>Savings– Buying either Season Ticket package is less expensive than paying general admission. And even if you don’t plan to attend all the shows, you will still get to enjoy all the perks listed above. Don’t miss out!
