About Toi Toi

 

Toi Toi is Teatru Manoel’s Education Programme 

“Toi Toi” A phrase used to wish good luck to an artist, seconds before going on stage!

Life at the theatre is bustling with activity around Toi Toi which was originally launched in September 2011. Teatru Manoel has a deep commitment towards Arts Education and aspires to reach an ever-growing audience, to be enjoyed by all. Part of our mission is to also bring our younger audiences closer to the wonderful world of the Arts, inspiring them with events that cater specifically for children and young adults.
