The International Theatre and Dance Festival started in San Javier in the 60’, thanks to a small group of amateurs who used to play on a stage in a small room with wooden chairs.
Later on, the important nacional and international theatre troupes started to join them and they moved from the small room to the wonderful Auditorium. The Festival became the most important cultural show available in the Region of Murcia in summer season, among the best ones in Spain.
In the hall, the lights are about to go out, the orchestra tunes the instruments, the actors are ready, the show is about to start. Take place, the evening opens the curtains to present on the stage of the Auditorium the effort, the smile, the tears, the dance, the music, the tragedy and the comedy of the artists, who will do their best to make us all wish to see them again next year.
