What we do

Arts in English is a non-profit making, cultural association, producing and performing quality theatrical productions at semi-professional level. Formed in 2005 by its President, Ailleen C Moir, a native of Scotland who has lived in Italy for many years, her aim was to bring British and American musical theatre and other works to the English speaking audiences inhabiting the Rome area.

Steadily building its reputation and repetoire over the years, Arts in English today has a significant number of dedicated followers and friends. While its core purpose is staging plays and musicals, Arts in English also run master class performing arts workshops for children, encompassing dance, drama and music.
