If there’s one thing that permeates my soul, it’s my love for theatre. I can recall my first time on stage – I played an injured character named “Clarence.” Mr. Parr had me wear a hospital gown, and I flashed my ass to the entire audience – in a church no less!
Speaking of churches, The Gate is celebrating World Theatre Day with a cabaret and silent auction.
Created 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 where, 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.
The fundraiser begins at 7PM tonight @ The Gate.
