Since opening its doors in 2018, Ithra Theater has established itself as Saudi Arabia’s premiere theater program and venue for cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary productions.
Geared to local, regional, and international audiences, the Theater is a platform for works that push creative boundaries across multiple disciplines of the performing arts.
The Theater sets the stage for the next generation of theater experts, producers, and artists of Saudi Arabia’s performing arts industry. The Ithra Theater features live local and international productions. We envision that these shows will reinforce Saudi social and cultural values. We also provide training to local talent in the fields of theater, cinematic production, script writing, and the supporting arts.
Ithra’s Short Play Contest is a cultural event organized by Ithra. The contest is scheduled annually. The Short Play Contest provides an opportunity for writers, directors and performers to share their talents and creativity before live audiences – empowering local talent and enriching Saudi theatrical content.
