10 September 2012 Bahrain to participate in GCC XII Theater Festival With " Balaleet" Honoring Bahraini artist, Abdullah Youssef for his Theatre achievements

The Sultanate of Oman represented, by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture, is hosting the GCC XII Theater Festival which includes many events and theatrical performances in Salal from 8-15 September. Al-Bayader Theatre Group has selected "Al Balaleet" as their theatrical masterpiece to play in this festival. The play is written by artist, Jamel Al-Saqir and directed by artist, Ahmad Jassim. 

Al-Bayader Theatre Group has made all required and necessary preparations in order to participate in this major GCC festival, which will highlight the major theater achievements and distinguished playwrights. Hence, the Ministry of Culture has decided to support theatre plays in order to contain the movement in the country and to enhance cooperation and participation in major Arab and International festivals. Quality and professional performance standards are at the very heart of the Ministry's concerns when it comes to representing Bahrain in major festivals.

Indeed, the Arbitration Committee of the 12th GCC Theatre Festival has honored the Bahraini theatre actor for his strenuous efforts to develop the theater movement in Bahrain in general, and in Awwal Theatre in particular.
