Luceafărul Theatre (Romanian: Teatrul Luceafărul) for children and youth, is a public theatre in Iași, Romania, specializing in plays for families and young audiences.

History[edit]

Founded in 1949, as the Puppet Theatre, it became, in 1973, the Theatre for Children and Youth. In 1987, the institution was renamed Luceafărul (English: The Evening Star) Theatre.[1][2]

Every year, in October, the venue hosts the "International Theatre Festival for Young Audience" (FITPT) (Romanian: "Festivalul Internațional de Teatru pentru Publicul Tânăr").[3][4]
