African Renaissance Theatre (A.R.T) is proud to officially announce the Theatre Support Program (TSP). The TSP is an initiative designed by A.R.T to provide professional artistic and technical support for organizations whom are not directly involved in Theatre Arts but have a department dedicated it. Or have a need for or interest in theatre arts. These could include churches, hospitals, parks, and many others.

This Christmas we had a great deal of fun working with the theatre department of Family Worship Centre, Wuye, Abuja. Check out some photos below:

It’s lots of fun at carnivals, but it’s also lots of walking. Good thing there are lots of sights and sounds around to make it beautiful experience.
