National Theatre wraps up 25th Anniversary symposium

The National Theatre of Ghana has hosted a 3-day Anniversary symposia as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations.

The workshop created a platform for the exchange of ideas and medical advice to assist a number of participants from dance groups, performers, art teachers, schools, health workers, sports men and other interested groups.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the three-day workshop in Accra, a specialist in healthcare at the Ohio University, Dr Jeffery Russell said doctors should pay attention to musicians, actors and other persons within the creative arts industry as they are prone to serious health issues in their line of duty.

He said, there have been complaints by players in the arts industry about the “unprofessionalism” exhibited by some medical doctors in the country.

“Diploma and degrees is not as important as patients in your examination ward. Performing art people always complain and feel medical professionals do not treat them well,” Dr. Russell noted.

Held under the theme “Arts, Health and wellness”, the event was in collaboration with the Ministries of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Education, Health, Gender and Social Protection.

Some veteran Ghanaian actors were also present at the event.


As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, the National Theatre has partnered Azaguno Incorporated and the Ohio University to produce “Agoro”; a concept of new African music, dance and dramatic sketches aimed at educating, transforming and entertaining.

The “Agoro” has been scheduled for June 28, 29 and 30, 2018 at the National Theatre auditorium. entertainment
