Theatres in Panama City

Panamanian love for theatre and music is echoed in the number of theatres spread across the city. While most theatre groups enact their plays in the local language, a few specialise in promoting English language arts. Despite the language or motive of the group, Panamanian theatre shares a common ambition – to develop the love for acting and appreciation of arts among the youth.

Balboa Theatre

Teatro Nacional (National Theatre)

The National Theatre, inaugurated in 1908, assumes the highest place in the art scene of Panama. It is built on a place that was previously thought to be an 18th century monastery. In earlier times, the National Theatre was a popular meeting ground among the social elite, but later it lost its charm and was rented out as a movie theatre. However, with a couple of restorations in the 2000s, the theatre has gained back its previous status. Along with the performance, the ceiling frescoes by Panamanian artist Robert Lewis are worth a mention.
Address: Av. B, Panama City, Panama.
