Teatro Verde is a children’s theater company that has been a cornerstone in the lives of Roman children, teenagers, schools and families since its founding in 1986. 

Their shows engage audiences with a variety of theatrical techniques including acting, puppetry, clowning, juggling, shadow play, projections, and more. Often addressing social issues, they are rich in color, music, and emotion.

Teatro Verde also organizes theater workshops for adults, children, and people with disabilities, as well as theatrical parties, staged readings, and street performances. We produce books, CDs, films, exhibitions, festivals and a thousand other activities dedicated to children.


Theater is an encounter. Theater is relationships. Theater is dialogue. Theater is a language.
And like all languages, it’s best to start learning it as a child.
