Photos from our 2012 Christmas Theater Support Program with Family Worship Centre (FWC), Wuye, Abuja

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:

Theatre Support Program (TSP)

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.

In the past A.R.T has worked with the drama groups of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) and Family Worship Centre, as well as with the Jolatsen Drama Initiative, providing needed support for all three Abuja based institutions.

This year A.R.T is excited to once again be working with the drama group of Family Worship Centre, Abuja, for their Christmas command performance.

We look forward to a new and inspiring theatrical experience. Meantime, feast your eyes on beautiful pictures from the Easter command performance earlier in the year, the set of which was designed by A.R.T administrator and technical director Egbuche Pope.

It’s always lovely to see theatre, an awe-inspiring art that it is, being used to spread a message of love, peace and unity.
