International theatre for all ages in Cape Town
The 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for young audiences.

From 16 to 27 May, ASSITEJ South Africa — the local leg of ASSITEJ International — will bring an array of spectacular theatre productions to the Cape with their festival Cradle of Creativity: The 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival for Children and Young Audiences.  

It is the first time in its history that the event will be held on African soil, and promises a wealth of diverse stage productions — 64 in total from 85 countries — specifically aimed at young audiences, from babies and toddlers, to tweens and teens.  

The exciting event will be held at various locations across the Mother City, including the Artscape Theatre, Cape Town City Hall, and the Baxter Theatre; a not-to-be-missed celebration of theatre magic from every corner of the globe. 

Bookings can be done via Computicket. Or visit for more information
