Vision: Stronger resilient communities.
Mission: The Theatre in Health Education Trust (THETA) uses applied theatre to promote well-being, equity, self-determination and to inform and strengthen communities.
The Theatre in Health Education Trust provides innovative and challenging health education programmes to the rangatahi/youth of Aotearoa-New Zealand through the experiential medium of theatre.
Our interactive theatre-based programmes use a combination of traditional theatre, educational drama, structured role play and decision-making activities to engage students in the exploration of issues relevant to their lives.
