Inad Theater

Logo Inad TheaterLogo Inad TheaterInad Theater is a non-profit cultural institution licensed by the Palestinian Ministries of Interior and Culture. The idea of Inad Theatre first emerged under the name of “Beit Jala Theatre Group,” because of its location in Beit Jala in the Bethlehem district. As the group developed and grew, it decided to incorporate under the name, "Inad Centre for Theatre and Art."

The main interest of Inad Theatre is children's theatre, where we focus on producing children's plays, bringing children into our productions and presenting them throughout our country to spread awareness and appreciation of theater among the new generation and to educate children about their rights and individual dignity.

Drama and theatre education are critical to our goals.  We conduct drama and theatre workshops at schools and help form theatre groups of students to further develop the students' personalities and give them supportive behavioral, emotional, mental, and physical direction.

Children's theatre is another critical element in Inad Theatre's repertoire and consists of special productions aimed at young children. Inad hopes to engage children at a young age and maintain theatrical communication with them as they grow up.

Additionally, Inad Theatre supports a free library at its studio in Beit Jala with reference book and specialized research for those in the community interested in learning more about drama and the history of theatre.

Inad Theatre has produced many important theatrical works that have traveled through many Palestinian cities, villages and refugee camps. Some of the productions have even gone abroad and participated in international and Arabic festivals.
