We are delighted and honoured to have been invited to Vienna in April of this year to perform in the VIENNA 2016. THEATRE FOR SOCIAL INCLUSION festival. The program for the festival includes activities focussing on: communication, youth, gender, care, migration, bodies and functional diversity.
Although we have travelled and performed in many countries throughout Europe this is BelTheatre's first opportunity to travel to our near neighbours and participate in such a worthwhile project. We would love to be able to make the most of this chance.
But...BelTheatre is financed entirely through its members and while we attempt to offer them an diverse and exciting program, we are also aware that not all of them can afford to participate in the excursions we offer without some outside help....and that is where you come in.
The money we are looking to raise here will cover travel, accommodation and production costs for ALL young people. If we fail to meet our target we will use the money to subsidize those in most need of financial support,
Please help us make this chance a reality.
As part of the fundraising efforts of a group of people from BelTheatre to participate in a theatre exchange programme in Antwerp, Belguim, director of BelTheatre will run the equivalent distance from Belgrade to Antwerp over the course of the next 30 weeks:1685km.

Here is some feedback from last year:
"Hi Paul, We were very impressed with what we've seen today and girls enjoyed every step of the way. Good work for all of you". - Vesna
"Thank you Paul! Misa enjoyed being a part of the theater workshop last week and is coming back for more. Its is a great outlet for children, he speaks english with much more confidence and enjoys the creative dynamics". - Anberin
"Thanks Paul for an awesome week!! Our boys had a blast! They were very apprehensive about learning something new, something out of their comfort zone. After the first day, they were asking "how many hours until we go back"? They loved the creativity and the freedom of expression that they were given. They had so much fun - thank you again for a great week"! – Vesna
"Congratulations!! i heard it was really great! can't wait to see it"! - Ana

We are happy to announce that BelTheatre’s latest production of What Mavis Saw will take place at 8pm on the evening of the 27th of December 2013 in the big hall at the Children’s Cultural Centre.
This time, one of the most popular texts of the theatre group will be performed by our youngest group and one or two changes have been made to the text to accommodate their particular skills, so the results should be worth watching! For some of this group it will be their first performance with the school, but they will be ably supported by some of our old-hands; either way your support for us and for them will be most welcomed.
Tickets to this production are free.
